Welcome to our blog!


We are three young women embarking on a cross Canada cycling trip! We will be starting May 5th from Victoria, B.C, making our way

East to St John’s, Newfoundland, spanning over >7000km. We are planning to stay mostly in campsites, but will indulge now and then in a roof over our heads (be it a hotel/motel/holiday inn, friends/family, or couchsurfing/warm showers). We will be carrying all our gear on our bikes, including tents and camping equipment.


This is by faaaar our biggest cycling adventure yet, and, after a LOT of planning and practice, we are so excited to get rolling!


Feel free to contact us with any questions or comments, and please check out our fundraising pages along the side bar!


Thank you!

Day 13: (May 17) Vernon to Sicamous 102km


We started off our day by having a wonderful sleep in at Susan and Paul's. Paul and Susan were so helpful in route suggestions when it came to avoiding highway 97 to our next destination Sicamous. Paul joined us for the beginning of our ride parting ways in Armstrong. We took beautiful backroads and possibly came across a query hitchhiker with an assault rifle. We also met Patrick, a fellow tourer, who joined us for a little until he parted ways to do some stealth camping for the night. He definitely had some interesting stories. The most important thing of the day was that we made it to DUTCHMEN DAIRY for their amazing homemade ice cream. 

We stayed the night in a cabin at the Sicamous KOA, which we named the Hobbit house.
