Day #11 of the EPIC Ride
Monday, July 8, 2013
Calgary – Brooks, AB
Distance: 192 km
Avg. Speed: approx. 30 km/h
Cloudy, breezy/windy, rainy
Yesterday was a long, hard day of riding. After leaving our great accommodations in Calgary at the SAIT Residence (see previous post), the Riders headed out for Brooks, AB.
The trek was not only a long ride, but the weather was grey and cool with light winds, and it rained for most of the day.
We made 3 stops along the way, and after leaving Calgary at 9 am, the Riders got to Brooks at 6 pm, with 6.5 hours of total riding for the day.
Thanks to a connection I was able to make by phoning around, Victory Church of Brooks helped us out by providing rooms for us at the Heritage Inn & Suites in Brooks. We did laundry, enjoyed a great dinner in the adjoining restaurant, and spent some time in the pool and hot tub.
Thank you to everyone for all the prayers and support! We are looking for places to stay as we travel, so if you know any friends or friends of friends or family who might be along our route, let us know!
One prayer request we do have is for the Riders’ health, and Evan in particular, as his knees and elbows are hurting him, from the constant riding.
Thank you again for the support! Check out our website to donate to Ratanak!
