Ready to roll on in Yukon

After a restday and bike clean / tune-up in Whitehorse on Thursday I rode all the way to Teslin yesterday. That’s 184km! And since I was stupid enough in the morning to go in the wrong direction in Whitehorse for a while I added an extra 45 min and 12km for a total of almost 200km and more than 10hrs on the bike – my longest day so far. There was a good bit of headwind for the first couple of hours, which is why it took me all of the daylight hours to get here (by 11:30pm). In the late evening light I took a short 10sec video riding along Lake Teslin:

The sun paints spectacular colors in the evening. This combined with the beautiful nature landscape inspires the photographer. Here are two pictures, one crossing the Tesling River at Johnsons Crossing and the other arriving at Teslin at 11:20pm close to sunset.

Today Saturday I’m planning to take it a bit easier. After checking out the Teslin “Northern Wildlife Museum” I have “just” 106km to Swift River…

Cheers, Thomas.
