This is Terry Inoldsby's king-size van (Vandura 2500) that he inherited from his father. We didn't know Terry even had this until this day. Gotta love people who have appropriate vehicles for all occasions! Terry had 3 bikes on the rack and 2 inside and room for more!
James Istvanffy was excited to get going
This is our C-RV - I was happy we were able to get both our bikes in with the front tires removed and had space for other stuff. We had actually never taken our bikes anywhere before.

The clouds looked a little ominous. We had a few sprinkles later in the day

We had lunch a little earlier and this is were we decided to head back. Cly had had one flat tire and we were out of food and water. This is just past the 10 kilometer mark.
James Istvanffy again - he's good at one-handed cycling
yet more trees
Here we are back at the bottom. We were a bit disappointed that we didn't make it the full 70 kilometer trek but 20 wsn't bad for our first 'serious' ride.

We decided to examine the black diamond in the town of Black Diamond on our way home.
