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 102: (August 14) Casey's Campground to Young's Cove 55km

Our day began in the rain. We packed up camp before heading inside the campground restaurant. There was also a little museum in the back! Our breakfast was bought by strangers who found out what we were doing. They were so sneaky that we only found out from our waitress after they had left! We will pass this kindness forward. The owners of the campground offered that we stay sheltered from the rain as it was pouring. We waited for the rain to calm down before continuing on our way. At one point during this rainy windy day we hopped onto hwy 2 which was scary so we got off as soon as possible. We had been told in Fredericton that many cyclist cycle the highway! They are risk takers. We had a lunch out of the rain in Jemseg before cycling the hilly 105 to Young's Cove. At this point we stayed in a little motel to dry out our things and stay out of the rain. We were happy to be near the restaurant and gas station which we got treats from.
