We Are Going to do This!

Day 15, 96 km, 22.8 km/hr

It was hard to get back on the bike today. 

We had spent a lovely,  relaxed day in Quebec City.  Some shopping,  some walking,  a food tour, sleeping in. ….

Quebec City was one of our goals, the day we planned as a rest day,  and in some ways it felt like we should be done. But we’re not.


Ken walked our trailer down the hill to the bike shop.

So today,  we gathered ourselves together and started pedaling.  We began by picking up our bike at the bike shop.  Two new tires, new front pedals, and a tune-up.


We leave Quebec City behind.

Within a couple of kms we boarded a ferry to take us across the river, while on the ferry we met a local cycling group. They, of course, flew by us shortly after we began riding and we never saw them again.


This ferry has lots of room for bicycles and the people who ride them.

As we rode along we noticed several more long distance riders, our b&b host has hosted cyclists 4 nights in a row.  Yes,  we’re under a roof again,  the plan was to camp tonight,  after all it’s not raining,  but the temperature is going to drop and the weather is somewhat unstable.  In fact,  we expect rain for the next 3 days and are hoping we can dodge  the showers.
