Ruskin to Mission, return. DAY: 33km. ODO: 98
Spent the morning, or what was left of it after I finally woke up at 10:15 (I’m unemployed – I’ll sleep in if I want to) tinkering with my brakes and tightening up my racks. After lunch I rode to Mission to buy a handlebar bag, spare tubes, and a kickstand, at Wenting’s bike shop – possibly the only bike shop in the lower mainland staffed by helpful, friendly, and unpretentious people (33245 N. Railway Avenue, Mission BC). I forgot the kickstand, however. Dinner was meatloaf and rice, and blackberry pie for dessert. One thing about visiting the farm – I never leave hungry.
