That's a helluva wall of text, can you improve the format?

I have no knowledge of the routes you need, but I think you'd get a better response if it was more understandable

How many of you are going? There are several long stretches where getting repairs is problematic, so make sure that chain, tire, spoke, and cable breakdowns etc. can be done for all bikes. Have you identified reliable food and water re-stocking points? Bring along plenty of mosquito repellent, and enjoy your adventure.

I think it's cool that you are including Bowron lakes in the trip, beautiful place!
I assume you have a reservation.
