Why Not A Little Further?

by in Nova Scotia

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 still got time to go further. Might as well ride some of tomorrow’s ride.”

Sure, I could have stopped enjoyed the nice town, relaxed, instead I put another two hours on the bike.

And so, I sit in Waycocomagh, Nova Scotia on Cape Breton island. My legs are tired. But I have some satisfaction in having gone further. As you can imagine I was belting out some Bruce Guthro, one of my favourite singers who happens to be from Cape Breton, while I was making my way.

Tomorrow will be my last day of real riding. Now that I’ve taken 50km out of it, it is a small 100km to the Ferry Ramp. Piece of cake.

Ride on.
