Out on the slopes
- Nov 12, 2015
A little bike-a-hike day going from gravel to glacier and back... bike portion was around 86km & 1,000m climbing, and midway hiked 4km & 800m (or STFU... straight the f*** up!) to a massive glacier. The road was a stunner, absolutely perfect totally empty gravel ride in an insanely stunning valley. The hike goes straight up to the foot of a glacier... indescribable views and always fun when you can get right up to the glacier. No better place to fill water bottles than directly from~240,000 year old melting ice. Used a frame bag to hold my stuff since I had hiking shoes, but I think next time I do a bike-hike I’ll just ride with flats and a light approach shoe, and the rest can go in a saddle bag and my jersey pockets… didn’t really like the added weight of the frame bag.
