Trois Rivière to Quebec City

Trois Rivière to Quebec City
I must have been over served in Trois Rivière Saturday night because I never published the blog I finished! It’s up now…fast forward to Sunday morning in 3 Rivers: Spent the morning Sunday working off my hangover, way too many amazing Quebec strong beers. I will do a beer post soon with all the beers ...

Joliette to Trois Rivière

Joliette to Trois Rivière
Today was all about dodging the thunderstorms…didn’t leave until noon today waiting out the morning rain. There were waves of Tstorms with sunshine between, a very odd day that provided for a great day. The smells of farm land abound on my journey today, the damp winds reminding me a little of Alberta and Saskatchewan ...

Montebello to Joliette - Part 2
For some reason my entire blog was not posted last night? Picking up from what was posted…after our proper breakfast we were on our way. Cycling conditions were perfect, hwy 158 had wide smooth shoulders, tailwind and very flat terrain. I was surprised how flat it was, in retrospect it is the flood plain of ...

My mate Paul and I fancied ourselves a proper breakfast this morning. So at half nine we headed to a restaurant close to the camp…another great day of cycling. Wide shoulders on hwy 158, smooth pavement and a tailwind! Sadly I missed a few opportunities to snap some photos as we cycled along the river ...

Rain rolled in this morning as expected and left Paul and I waiting on the front porch of the Jail until about noon. While it had not stopped raining it was as good as it was going to get for several hours so we set off. First stop was a classic parliament hill photo, sending ...

My day started out with a lot of promise and eagerness to peddle on…then I met up with Paul outside the parliament buildings for the changing of the guard. I cycled with Paul during my first week in the trip so we had a lot to catch up on, and it was a beautiful sunny ...

Still at the cottage 2

Still at the cottage
Well I am still hanging my hat (fishing rod) at the cottage on Bob’s Lake, about 65km north of Kingston. I was planning on cycling today but a 60L dry bag I ordered from Vancouver to replace the worn carry bag (that wasn’t waterproof) didn’t arrive by FedEx as expected on Friday. Looks like I ...

Havelock to Sharbot Lake 3

Today I was reminded how fragile our life is and to the reality of the risks we take in life. I will not be highlighting my day today in respect for the loss of Robert and Irene Booth who died yesterday in a collision just west of Nipigon while fulfilling their dream to cycle across ...
