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!

Claire, Julie & Nina

Day 62: (July 5) White Lake PP to Fishing Moose Lodge 72.2km

Today we stopped for lunch in White River, the town where the actual bear that Winnie the Pooh is based of of had come from. The town's motto is "where it all began". They have a very impressive collection of Winnie the Pooh paraphernalia. All of the Winnies can be found at the museum, a small building in town. 

After lunch, we were hoping to cover some ground but there did not appear to be anywhere to stop until the next city of Wawa, which we did not think we could make it to before dark. The only thing on route that appeared on our maps was a closed down provincial park. We were gearing up to free camp there, when we came across a little private campground.
