Eek a Wolf

We saw a wolf whilst out riding in Banff. Sighting of wolves are very rare, they generally like to steer clear of humans – how lucky we're we to spot it. We were later told by someone local that it was most probably a coyote as there are only two wolves in the whole of Banff. Personally I think she's wrong 🤣🤣 and it was a wolf and that's what I'm telling everyone 😂😂.

We're currently in Canmore. We should have left two days so but someone that we met on our travels has kindly let us stay at his condo for the week whilst we sort stuff out. We're reassessing our equipment as we're carrying far too much. We've had a bit of time to chill out before we head off to Field in a couple of days time.

There's a cool 😎 vending machine in town outside the bike shop which sells bike spares.

They did a great job of fixing my bike too. I lost a nut and bolt off my front derailleur and they had one that fit perfectly, yay 😊! Lesson learnt to keep on tightening my bolts ⚡️.

  1. Great blog to follow and a fantastic adventure, Susan. And a cyclist’s vending machine to wish for when bike shops closed. I’ve never seen anything like that before. Love the Banff cycle maintenance point and although none in Leicester there is one that I was glad of at Loughborough station next to the covered bike racks. In Brixton there are bollards that double as track pumps. This is the way to go, for sure. Things like these improve the cycling experience for intrepid tourists and urban commuters alike!

    1. Thanks for you reply. Please tell me who you are I can’t work it out from your name. Definitely agree though more bike stations would be great in the UK. I’m also impressed with the bike racks that they have on their buses.
