The ride was a bit less than 3700 km long over 8 days.

Day 1: Vancouver (BC)- Osoyoos (BC)
Day 2: Osoyoos (BC) – Sandpoint (Idaho)
Day 3: Sandpoint (Idaho) – Kooskia (Idaho) via Missoula (Montana)
Day 4: Kooskia (Idaho) – Joseph (Oregon)
Day 5: Joseph (Oregon) – Mitchel (Oregon)
Day 6: Mitchel (Oregon) – Portland (Oregon)
Day 7: Portland (Oregon) – Kalaloch (Washington)
Day 8: Kalaloch (Washington) – Vancouver (BC) via Whidbey island (Washington)

Day 4 was the most rainy day and the shortest riding day, and will stay in our memories for a long time.
Day 6 was the sunniest day and the longest day on the bike.
