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 6: (May 10) Manning Park to Princeton 71.5km


Today we faced our first flat tire early in the day! The culprit was a fish hook that punctured Julie's tire and inner tube! We were lucky because it happened right outside the Esso Station on the East Gate of Manning Park. We patched it up and ate some pop tarts, and were on our way!
We biked along a very steep windy downhill road with a narrow gravel shoulder down to Princeton. This was our scariest day yet, truck wise! On the road we found a great little Canadian flag!
In Princeton we stayed at a lovely little campsite called River's Edge. It was adorable, and indeed on the river.
