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 30: (June 3) Oyen to Kindersley 103.9km


On this morning we continued to take advantage of our stay at the Canalta in Oyen. Breakfast was included! Make your own waffles was a welcomed change from our regular oatmeal breakfast. We met a gentleman named Claude at breakfast who was cycling a 1000 miles loop in Alberta and Saskatchewan on a recumbent bike. We hopped back onto our bikes and cycled the 9 until hitting the border of Saskatchewan. We had fun doing our photo opt there, a man driving along the highway stopped to take a picture of all four of us since he recognized our photo shoot session! How kind! We continued into Saskatchewan on highway 7 stopping for lunch in a small town under a set of trees which are not a common site along the highway. We cycled to Kindersley where we stayed at the Kindersley Camp ground and Golf Course.
