6757

6757

Distance: 130km Time: 5:01:10 Something caught in my throat as I rolled over the top of the final hill and into view came the massive cliffs of Cape Spear. Beyond stretched nothing but the Atlantic Ocean. It truly felt like I was standing on the edge of the world. After 6757 kilometers, I came to […]

Last Stop on the Mainland

IMG_00000309

Distance: 101km Time: 4:18:32 Well, it is official, I am leaving mainland Canada. I have traversed upwards of 6600km and look behind me and see a majestic country that has both amazed me and challenged me. So it was fitting that today as I rode along Cape Breton Island I was both amazed and challenged. […]

Why Not A Little Further?

IMG_00000302

Distance: 180km Time: 6:20:27 There is something wrong with me. My goal today was Port Hawkesbury, smack down in the middle of the remaining distance to the Newfoundland ferry. But when I got there today, it was only 4:30. I had biked 130km and the legs were feeling good. My mind automatically starts thinking, “I’ve […]

The Final Chapter Begins

IMG_00000295

Distance: 114km Time: 4:13:21 I took three days off and cottaged. I rode my bike only once to the corner store and back to get more food. I did what any self-respecting cottager would do and eat, eat and eat some more. Getting on my bike this morning was a rude awakening. Leaving Laura once […]

Staying Put For A Few Days

MooseCollage

Distance: 104km Time: 4:01:18 One of the more difficult parts of this adventure has been the 40 days of packing up home and moving it. Never staying in the same place. It is something I totally underestimated. But today, after a fisticuffs with the wind for 100 kilometers I arrived on Cranberry Lane in Prince […]

I Keep Telling Myself, “It’s not a race.”

IMG_00000284

Distance: 201km Time:7:23:36 People who know me, know that I’m naturally inclined in competition. I never care who wins or who loses, it’s all about having fun. After biking about 2km from my lodging, I felt that sensation of forgetting my wallet. Being in my own world, I slowed down to check my panniers. Unbeknownst […]

There Is Something About A Bike

IMG_00000272

Distance: 165km Time: 7:15:14 Barefeet, no shirt, and pedaling as hard as his legs could down a gravel road. That was the first kid I rolled past today. The second was a little boy practicing skidding on the gravel driveway. He’d tear down one way, then slammed the pedals backwards as he whipped the handlebars […]

Saturday (Montmagny – Pohenegamook) Distance: 162km Time: 5:48:23 Sunday (Pohenegamook – Perth-Andover, NB) Distance: 204km Time: 7:12:14 If you were driving in your car this weekend through Quebec or New Brunswick, you probably didn’t notice it. Sure, you may have noticed the beautiful blue cloudless skies and the just-right temperature, but the subtlety of these […]

Le Gars En Sueur Vetu de Spandex

IMG_00000267

Distance: 208km Time: 8:24:38 About three minutes after leaving the comfortable, welcoming house of Agathe, I was a sweaty mess. The humidity in Trois Rivieres was palpable. It formed little droplets on each of my arm hairs. I wouldn’t be dry again, all day. The riding was wonderful through the quaint riverside towns. The roads […]
