Canadian Biking (Mis)Adventure


On the road again, I just can't wait to get on the road again.

Packed and heading' north. Felt good to be going somewhere new. Meeting friends in Squamish, then moving on to Whistler. The sunshine coast, Sea to Sky highway. It was all so romantic.

Well it was until I zigged instead of zagged, went over the bars and broke a couple bones in my right shoulder. Some X-rays in the Whistler clinic, effective pain meds and the following day we were headed back to NV for surgery.

On the road again, I just can't wait to get on the road again.

Stats: Sean - dirt sandwich - no serious injuries
          Big Jim -broken clavicle and 4 ribs
          Doug - broken clavicle and acromion

Mountain Biking Squamish and Whistler

Big Jim

First crash. Dirt sandwich for Sean. Luckily not serious.

After Squamish we met at the Longhorn in Whistler

Keddy, Sean and Glen at the top of the Gondola.

Well, gotta get the bike back somehow. Thank goodness for good meds.

Keddy, Sean and Glen came by to see us before they had to take off for home.

Well if you've made it this far, surgery was done a few days after we got home and recovery is on track.
