It didn’t really help that it was unexpectedly cold. Riding from Canmore up to Whiteman’s Gap towing a Chariot was good training for Alex. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I’d never biked Goat Creek before and was surprised by how rocky and rough it was (although the photo below was taken on a smooth section, there were rocks, honestly).
Definitely do-able with the Chariot, but all descents had to be taken slowly, and the riding really isn’t that exciting, with views of trees, trees and more trees along the way (also for a ‘downhill’ ride, there’s a lot of uphills). Finn did like the creeks though.
Stopping in the sun in Banff was pleasant enough, but then returning via the Legacy Trail was just beginning to get a bit tedious, probably because I was cold and cranky by that point. All in all, ride rating was a solid ‘meh’. Now I’ve done it I need never do it again.
