Miramichi to Shediac 2

Miramichi to Shediac
Woke very refreshed and feeling a lot closer to my normal self. Slept in a little and headed out at 1020am. My tooth wasn’t bothering me as long as I didn’t bite down on my left side, noticed I wasn’t 100% yet, likely due to the shortage of food for the last few days. The ...

Bathurst to Miramichi 5

Bathurst to Miramichi
After a day almost entirely spent zonked out on T3s and antibiotics I wasn’t feeling like biking this morning. My tooth pain had subsided, however still couldn’t bite down even the slightest. Dinner last night was a mandarin orange and a yogurt! Today didn’t get a lot of food either, oatmeal for breakfast, a soup ...

My first injury setback… 1

My first injury setback...
I have been troubled by a sensitive back molar for most of the trip, every so often I bite down and get a shooting pain. Normal for me, I chose to ignore it and assumed I would see a dentist when I returned from this journey. I did not expect a tooth was going to ...

Campbellton to Bathurst 1

Campbellton to Bathurst
Hostels are a great experience but ultimately it is a shared dorm room and with that comes inconsiderate people. Two younger couples checked in about 10pm last night while I was reading in my bed with a night light on. On came all the lights, which was ok since I wasn’t asleep, but they kept ...

Val Brillant to Campbellton, NB 4

Val Brillant to Campbellton, NB
As this was my last day cycling in Quebec, Betty earned another provincial flag! 910am and I was on my way again with clear skies and a westerly wind that generally helped me as I was travelling SE. Most of my ride today was along the Matapedia River, well known for its fishing. Kicking myself ...

Sainte Luce to Val Brillant 2

Sainte Luce to Val Brillant
Left Sainte Luce at 10am with clear skies and another strong west wind. The girls decided to take a well deserved rest day after nonstop cycling from Montreal. The first 20km to Mont Joli followed the St Lawrence, that looked more like the ocean than a river with its tidal affects and water as far ...

Rivière du Loup to Sainte Luce 2

Rivière du Loup to Sainte Luce
My day started at 10am, with strong winds from the west! It is starting to cool off as I get closer to the east coast, highs if 20deg will start to be rare. Lunch today was at a cheese factory…smoked salmon, mackerel and cheese bread. Timmies can’t beat this! I am not sure I will ...

L’Islet sur Mer to Rivière du Loup 2

L'Islet sur Mer to Rivière du Loup
Woke to the sound of rain on my tent at about 630am. Luckily a major thunderstorm, that on the radar looked to span over 100km, passed just to the south. Started cycling at 10am, a little cooler day so had long sleeve shirt on, been a while for that. By the end of the day ...

Quebec City to L’Islet sur Mer 4

Quebec City to L'Islet sur Mer
Morning rain delayed my start till 1115am. Interesting riding through the busy wet cobblestone streets of Quebec City on my way to the Ferry to Levis. One particular downhill that had to be at least a 12% grade, I was white knuckled on the brakes the whole way down. Once across the river I picked ...

2 days in Quebec City 2

2 days in Quebec City
My expectations for Quebec City were high and it met all but a few of my hopes. People say it is as close to Europe as Canada gets, while I have never been I imagine this is what it would feel like. The city is divided into the lower section and upper then by inside ...
