To Banff by bicycle

The small starting of this trip was that just I bought a cheep used bicycle for daily use. But suddenly I thought that I didn't have a plan on weekend and I could go to Mountain, I could go to Banff, by bicycle. From Calgary to Banff, it's about 130km. I did this plun on last weekend. On Saturday from Calgary to Banff. On Sunday coming back from there. First, I feel so good and thought how nice road it was, how nice trip it was. But unfortunatelly the way to there was little bit long, more than I thought. Long too much. Bicycle is too heavy because my bicycle was cheep used MTB. I need to go forward against strong wind from Rocky. My knee and uncle had gotton pain. And my ass was also! But, however, I was satisfied with this trip, because I could meet many good scenery. This was big preasure on this trip.

この旅の小さな始まりは、ただ通学のために中古の自転車を買ったこと。でも週末に予定がないってことに気づいたのと同時に、この自転車でバンフに行けるじゃないか!って考えたのさ。カルガリーからバンフまではおよそ130km. 先週末、実行しまきました。土曜にカルガリーからバンフへ。日曜にバンフからカルガリーへ。最初はいい調子で、なんていい道でなんていい旅なんだ!なんて考えていたのだけど、バンフまでの道のりは思っていた以上に長かったようです。長すぎました。中古で買ったMTBが重いこと重いこと。そしてロッキーからの向かい風に向かって走る必要もあったし、膝も痛めば足首も痛めば、お尻も痛む始末。でも満足いく旅でした。いい景色に沢山出会えたことだしね。
