Whycocomagh to North Sydney 3

Whycocomagh to North Sydney
As I tucked into to sleep last night it became evident that I was going to be dealing with a strong headwind and an entire day of rain on my way to North Sydney. This test anybody’s mettle and needs to start with the right attitude. Going into a long day of rain and hard ...

Linwood to Whycocomagh 2

Linwood to Whycocomagh
Took my time this morning, cooked myself some oatmeal and toasted some peanut butter and honey crumpets (change from the bagel!). Headed on the road at 10am and crossed paths with Gene, Fabio and Jim from Thunder Bay. These gents cycled Vancouver to TBay last year and this year NFD to TBay. You know when ...

Sherbrooke to Linwood 5

Sherbrooke to Linwood
Left camp at 920am and enjoyed a 3 egg omelette in town, that’s my favourite start to a day. I think I have had enough peanut butter and honey bagels and oatmeal for a lifetime. Sherbrooke is well known for its “village” depicting live in the late 1800s, passed by a working lumber mill in ...

Sheet Harbour to Sherbrooke
Didn’t really want to leave such a nice quite camp today, my knees were telling me there was no chance of cycling today, but it takes a bit more than this to keep me off the bike. I did however get up, make breakfast then fall back asleep till 1030am! It was my compromise to ...

2 days off in Halifax and my ride to Sheet Harbour 1

2 days off in Halifax and my ride to Sheet Harbour
Where do I start, Halifax is a great city and like most that have an amazing waterfront there is lots to see and do. Last night I enjoyed a harbour cruise on a tall ship that lasted about a hour and a half. Amazed at the number of naval ships in the harbour. Which brings ...

Truro to Halifax 1

Truro to Halifax
While falling asleep last night I could hear something trampling down branches and underbrush about 20ft from my tent. I was on the edge of the forest so not surprising, wasn’t too concerned, likely a deer…I hope? Slept in this morning and hit the road at 10am to a slight headwind and a sunny hot ...

Northumberland PP to Truro, NS
What a beautiful picture to wake up to…heard the horn of the first Ferry of the day leave port at 630am. Too nice a campsite to rush the morning so I waited to get on the 930am Ferry. Enjoyed my oatmeal breakfast and large mug of hot tea with a short walk on the beach. ...

Stratford to Northumberland Prov Park 1

Stratford to Northumberland Prov Park
A gorgeous morning again, been making up for all the rain in the west. Hope it lasts another three weeks! Left for the road at 10am, thought better of trying to navigate the 12% grade loose gravel downhill and went down the ninth hole of the golf course! I was just imagining any of the ...

Borden Carleton to Stratford 2

Borden Carleton to Stratford
A busy day that started with a return call from the dentist in Charlottetown confirming they could arrange a time for me in the afternoon. This was welcome news. I started my ride at 840am hoping to arrive at the dentist for 1pm. As expected I saw many fields of potatoes but was surprised by ...

Shediac to Borden Carleton, PEI 2

Shediac to Borden Carleton, PEI
My ride started at 1020am after nursing a small hangover that I didn’t expect since I only had a couple drinks (it’s true your honour) but the mix of antibiotics and alcohol obviously took its toll as I was quite dehydrated this morning. Another beautiful day in the Maritimes, wide shoulder for most of the ...
