Improvements finishing up... Sea to Sky will be back for us for 2010 brevets.

The climb

Duffy Lake Road: the previously almost unridable surface repaved for ~30 km past the summit. Wooooooooosh ! But watch the edge...

The real story of the ride was, of course, the Lillooet fire. The next day (day 2 of the ride), after we all were safely through or out, Lillooet was evacuated. But while we were there, the helicopters were swirling over head, running back and forth to their dump zones, making Lillooet sound like a war zone. War correspondent Ryan caught it beautifully.
