Thank you

Okay, as FIRES go, and the "probability" of us re-routing the ride......here is the latest update, as of August 22nd, at 4:00 pm, PST:

I just checked on all Western States, but more specifically to the states that the 3FC route will be riding through.

There are NO fires within close proximity to our route, and short of a lightning strike causing a new fire along our route, I do not anticipate that we will be encountering active fires anywhere along our route.

There "may" be existing smoke to deal with, from active or recent fires that are WEST of our route.

However, having just now checked on the weather forecasts for each location of our Checkpoints, and...the Finish location in Calgary, it is probable that Great Falls, MT. and Calgary, Alberta will receive rainfall during the next 5 days that can sufficiently reduce or fully remove any existing smoke in the air.

The entire route is forecasted to be dry, and temps in the upper 70's to upper 80's.

El Sam most of the fires are in British Columbia which is a long ways away from the TFC route. The smoke in Calgary changes with the wind direction. Nothing to worry about.....

Fires now in Waterton Parks so keep informed on your way on the last leg into Alberta. If concerned stay on the 15 through Montana and the 4 in Alberta. The 4 will become the 2 and will take you all the way to Deerfoot Trail into Calgary.
