Thoughts on Canada!

  As we pass through each country we would like to do a quick summary of the place and how it affected each of us. So Canada, you’re up first! Canada, you are such scenically a beautiful place. Full of mother natures rugged beauty. From the shores of Vancouver Island right up through to the…

Where do we go now?

T – We woke up to pouring rain today. We hadn’t set the ground sheet up properly under the tent and the bottom of the tent was drenched. There are a few pinholes in the floor it seems and all that water had let itself inside. Our mats were drenched. The tent was drenched. Everything…

Ranch time!

Today we had to only ride about 65 km’s to our hosts ranch. So we decided to head into Williams Lake town centre to take care of some laundry. Our clothes were getting kind of stinky, and they could almost stand up on their own! At the laundromat we met a lovely lady and her…

We had some high expectations today about the ride. A book kindly given to us by Brian has listed this road as a great ride! So we were up and at it early, knowing we had to take on some mountain climbs today. I had neglected to tell Mabel this as she hates mountains and…

Mabel…Noooooooot again……

After a peaceful night sleeping in the woods, we packed up and shipped out towards Port Renfrew. We have heard that this part of the island has some spectacular riding with not much traffic. We had a quick stop in at a Tim Hortons, we are becoming addicted to their 4 cheese bagels, to update…

Heading southwards

We woke up today to sunshine!! Yay!! Our poor tent is still quite damp, and as much as I don’t like to do it, we packed it away still wet. We really want to go to Tofino, but because our bikes are so slow and we have to be in Victoria in 2 days we…

We were greeted in the kitchen by fresh coffee and Cindy and Brian making us an amazing breakfast. Pancakes, pork sausages, cream, blueberries and strawberry’s. All served with a helping of maple…
