delays & riding accross canada

Lack of updates! I know..no excuses, I’ve been busy….kinda. More of my friends are back and so I’ve been out and about. Also, I think I am just blog-lazy if that’s even a term. In reality, I’m really not on the computer as much now than I am when in Guelph. There’s just that much more to do here 🙂

Anyways….

Just over a month ago, I mentioned that one of my friends, Garrett Reynolds and his buddy Dylan, are riding across Canada via bike. Well their adventure started a few weeks ago Wednesday (May 6th, 2009) when they landed in Victoria, B.C.

They landed here in Vancouver on Saturday, May 9th. I biked from my place to Stanley Park to meet them since I figured they’d get lost trying to find my house. We promptly found some all-you-can-eat sushi at Tampopo, on the corner of Pendrell and Denman. We brought 3 bikes right to the top floor since we didn’t feel safe locking them outside with of their equipment. Garrett had his first slice of sashmi and Dylan was able to fullfill his Ontario-long crave for Japanese food!

Garrett and Dylan stayed a night over here, allowing them to relax and regroup after biking the island. We did a MEC trip as well as a visit to Tom Lee Music to equip Dylan with a harmonica.

They’ve now been on the road for about 2.5 weeks and are recently just passed Nelson, BC. I’m pretty sure they’ve seen a variety of BC weather even though it is mid-late may. I do recall relaying some weather reports before they entered Manning Park; snow at elevations of 1700m! And the regular BC weather, rain…next 5 days! Prepare to never be dry.

Once again, their website is www.canadianodyssey.ca and you can also follow them on twitter
