Day 5 – Elkwood to Fernie 40 miles

The ride from Elkwood to Fernie was along highway 40 and 3. No gravel today. An easy day mostly riding downhill. It’s an interesting contrast riding on gravel vs the road. On gravel we worry about guzzler and moose. On the road the hazards are cars and trucks. I’ll take the Grizzlies and moose!
