Days 9, 10 and 11: You Don't Appreciate Flat Land Until It's Gone

Quebec City to La Pocatière, to Rivière-du-Loup, to Cabano

Distance: 281 KM biked 

Time Spent Biking: 19 hours over 3 days

Total KM Biked: 1314 KM in 11 days

Just before starting the ride today, I had a great interview with the Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph. This entire project has been a challenge, but it's amazing to be able to say that we've brought together 120 people to help sponsor the Beshmaf family already. We'll post a link to the QCT interview once it goes up!

 Quebec seems to have been designed for bikers - I'm going to really miss these paths

 After getting used to biking with so much weight, my bike feels way too light when I take the bags off

I'm finally getting used to the rhythm of this - wake up, pack up, get on the bike, pedal pedal pedal, eat eat eat, and repeat. The most exhausting part has to be getting to my location and still having so much to catch up on with this project, but losing sleep for this trip isn't bad at all. 

Done with Day 9, onto Day 10!

 The roads are getting much more empty and lonely, making the distance go by more slowly

Today was surprisingly tough - the open landscape exposed me to a pretty bad headwind that slowed me down. I also felt that my bike was slowly breaking down, and I had to make some repairs before I reached Rivière-du-Loup. All in all though, definitely one of my better days so far in the ride!

Last but not least, Day 11:

 Someone finally makes a stand against the horses - I guess the fact that I haven't seen a horse yet means it's working?

 Found a lake near the peak of the climb to relax by (and eat by)

And there goes Day 11! I'm officially in New Brunswick, and the next few days will be when I have to get through some more hills and mountains. My legs can't wait. 

We're almost at $13,000 in donations! We're hoping to reach $30,000 by the end of July, and it would be amazing to get your donation if you haven't already contributed towards sponsoring the Beshmaf family. We're about to finalize some sponsorship details with the family, and if you'd like to stay informed on the entire sponsorship process, please donate any amount and we'll keep you updated. 

Donate here!

Lots of love from the road,
