Day 2 Woodbury to Nakusp
Day 2 was 115 km in more hot weather in the high 30's. I started riding just before 7 and got into camp after 3:00 pm for 8.25 hours of riding. We had a great coffee stop in Kaslo and then a 12% short rise out of Kaslo. Out of Kaslo we climbed steadily for 33 km to the Fish Lake water stop. After that we had a screaming descent into New Denver for lunch. Our next water stop was at Summitt Lake but a strategic lemonade stand made two little girls very happy with 125 thirsty cyclists going by. I understand they made almost $100. The final descent to Nakusp was another fun one. We ended the day with dinner at the Senior's Centre and me crashing in my tent by 9:00 pm.
