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 21: (May 25) Canmore to Calgary 123km

We started off the day by going to the amazing Rocky Mountain Bagel Co. with our wonderful host Chelsea. Remember Simon? Well Chelsea is Simons friend! The Rocky Mountain Bagel Co. is simply delicious - check it out if you're ever in Canmore. We cycled along the 1A and battled our last hill getting out of Cochrane with great strength. Once arriving into the outskirts of Calgary we cycled along the Bow River Pathway to get to Marcus' house. Riding along this pathway was beautiful and gave us a great intro into the city. Dinner was enjoyed at Local in downtown Calgary.
