Mission: Mission

We're leaving the oddest pitstop of all -- an abandoned gas station in Deroche. There's an abandoned car in the gas fillup lane and a rusty old engine dangling from a chain beside it.

There are just two more quick stops and the Golden Ears bridge.

The riders are exhausted, and currently climbing an 11 percent hill. They are in really good spirits, for the most part, and feeling like they're on the home stretch.

Next stop: Mission

Hey, just saw you all leave the Boston Pizza while picking up my kids from the theatre.
You all looked so energetic, when you must have been so exhausted.
CONGRATS to you all. Keep up the great work, you are all heroes.

Girls........ We (my cow bell, yellow blankie, and I) just got home from cheering on the team at the corner of 176 St and 64th Ave. The team looked so strong, after such a long , long day. It was such an emotional experience to see them ride past. They passed "my corner" about 10:17 so should be nearing the home stretch soon. I wish I could personally thank each and every one of the riders and volunteers.
