Ride Day 43: Settling into a efficient routine with the new team, today we managed nearly 100-miles and crossed into the penultimate province of the journey. It’s hard to believe I have pedalled every inch of the way through British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. It’s only by taking it one day at a time, breaking the route into manageable sections and resting-up from time to time that it has been possible. We have a real sense that the finish line in Halifax is getting close; I am so, so excited about reaching journey’s end and dipping my toes in the Atlantic! Pursued once again by a much-welcome tail wind, we crossed the ‘Patapedia River’ leaving Quebec and entering New Brunswick. We crossed another time-zone here actually became an hour closer to Greenwich Meantime. Again following a picturesque Atlantic estuary (the ‘Baie des Chaleurs’) we found a delightful motel in 'New Mills' with views over the water and tucked into Bec’s fine Spaghetti Bolognaise. After a full day in the saddle and a glass or two of wine, I fell into a deep slumber. I appreciated sleeping in a real bed for a change!
