We finally finished what we set out to do: that is cycle from Vancouver Airport to Ottawa and blog about our adventure.
Today we finalized the remainder of our blog entries. We updated the following pages:
a. Equipment list
b. Fun statistics
We can now get on with the planning and preparation for our next two trips. For 2016, we had hoped to cycle to St-John's, Nfld, but due to unexpected circumstances, we must delay our trip by 1 year. As we have done in the past this East Coast trip will serve as a full dress rehearsal for the trip we are now planning for the summer of 2018.
In 2018, we will fly to Deadhorse, Alaska and pedal as far SOUTH as we can in a two month period. We expect to make it at least to Vancouver or Calgary (we have not firmed up the route yet). The particular challenge on this trip is the lack of support between Deadhorse and Fairbanks, Alaska. We will have to be self sufficient for 800 kms. The 200 km of near nothingness between Wawa and Sault Ste-Marie now looks like a Sunday afternoon ride on the multi-use pathways in Ottawa.
We hope you enjoyed our blog and for the cyclist reading this we hope it is useful.
