I barely slept the last night as it was too cold for my sleeping bag. After a warm coffee I’m on the road and face a strong headwind into Whitehorse. It’s finally sunny and the Mountains are beautiful but the wind is making progress difficult. In Whitehorse I meet Shane and Susie, two local cyclists who live another 90 minutes out of town and we ride together to their place which lies on my route. I wash my stuff, bring my bike in shape and happily accept the invitation to stay. The wind is forecasted to change direction tomorrow and a very early start is more efficient than fighting another two hours against the wind
