Welcome to our blog!


We are three young women embarking on a cross Canada cycling trip! We will be starting May 5th from Victoria, B.C, making our way

East to St John’s, Newfoundland, spanning over >7000km. We are planning to stay mostly in campsites, but will indulge now and then in a roof over our heads (be it a hotel/motel/holiday inn, friends/family, or couchsurfing/warm showers). We will be carrying all our gear on our bikes, including tents and camping equipment.


This is by faaaar our biggest cycling adventure yet, and, after a LOT of planning and practice, we are so excited to get rolling!


Feel free to contact us with any questions or comments, and please check out our fundraising pages along the side bar!


Thank you!

Day 121: (September 2) Jack's Pond Campground to Blue Fin RV Park (near Holyrood) 96.4km

Today was a challenge. It was very cold and windy, and the hills were never ending. We stopped for lunch in Whitbourne, where there is an intersection of highways and therefore gas stations and restaurants. This is the last real place to stop until you are just outside of St. John's. We stopped for the night at the Blue Fin RV Park just off the highway. It was a cold night.
