The Singletrack6 madness was followed by four days of relative relaxation in the Revelstoke campgorund. Suffering from the after effects of heat exhaustion (walking hurt my stomach?) I didn’t get an awful lot of riding done. There was a lot of lazing and reading. But of course a little riding.
First on Frisby Ridge…
Then I took the boy out on the Macpherson Trails while the others actually went for a proper ride. He’s still riding pedal-free, but is getting better and better on his run-bike. He’s quite the cautious descender though – no madcap rolls down anything and everything for this boy.
Then there was an aborted attempt at Keystone Standard Basin. I’d finally recovered from the heat exhaustion, but bonked on the first hill and couldn’t understand what was wrong with me. Struggling on, eventually it got so bad that I could barely walk my bike along, and had to have a lie down. Once it occurred to me to eat the rest of the food I had with me, I magically felt fine, but decided heading back to the car probably wasn’t a bad idea. Apparently my body wanted about 10 times the calories I’d fed to it (although I’d spent most of the morning eating).
