We don’t always know where we’ll be 100 miles from now, nor do we know which route is going to be the best (downhill/ tail wind/ full of cafes/ people cheering/ free camping/ no snakes) to get us there. But every once in a while, we get lucky and find ourselves somewhere special.
We made it! Canada we crossed you North to South, all the way, almost 4.000km! It was a wild ride. But before we are helping Donald Trump to ‘Make America Great Again’ (let us all hope he actually never gets the chance), we got to wine a bit in the Okanagan. A well deserved few days of drinking wine and eating our body weight in fruits fresh from the orchards...
Once upon a time I rode my bike across Canada, a big country. Thankfully Canada is chopped up into nice little provinces that give you a gratifying sense of achievement as you pass through them, until you reach Ontario and learn the hard way just how gigantic that place is. Cycling across Ontario broke me in the head a little bit. Cycling British Columbia North to South brings back memories of cycling through Ontario – it never ends.
