The Gals

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 22-24: (May 26-28) Calgary Rest Days

These three days we took off to explore Calgary and recharge. We explored the culinary delights of the Blue Star Diner, La Brezza Ristorante, Brown Social House, Ming, Blanco Cantina, The National, and Singapore Sams. We may have also done some shopping, whilst trying to explain to retailers that leather pants and heels (no matter how they are a wardrobe necessity) are just not practical for what we're doing. Brohan, a friend from university and also a Nomininguer, made an appearance to our visit all the way from the US!

Marcus was an amazing host who made us feel right at home - we couldn't be more grateful. The visit definitely passed a bit too quickly! Unfortunately, we did have to say bye to Hayley as Calgary was her final destination. Good luck on defending your thesis Hayley!
