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 119: (August 31) Gander to Port Blanford 118.7km

Being well rested, we set off nice and early. It was a beautiful day with some much appreciated sunshine! What a world of difference sun makes. We stopped at Mary Brown's for lunch and tried the world famous taters. We were informed that there would be blasting done on the highway in Terra Nova park and that the highway would be closed for one hour. Keeping this in
mind we pushed forward. After cycling by a few construction sites, we found the blasting site and made it through before the hour long closure. Once out of Terra Nova park we stopped for the day at an RV park along the highway near Port Blandford. They were so kind that they allowed us to set up camp in their gazebo. We were protected from the evening rain.
