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 54: (June 27) Atikokan to Quetico 44km

We took our time getting moving this morning as we were sleepy from the past few days.
Today was cold and windy, so we stopped at a camp store to eat lunch inside. It is said that they have the best butter tarts in the area! They were very good! The name of the stop is Quetico North Campstore if you are ever passing through on highway 11. 
We were quite tired and decided to stop early at a very highway accessible Dawson Trail Campground within Quetico Provincial Park.
For dinner we cooked a leisurely curry and treated ourselves to a camp fire.
