Rest Day 14: Deciding to rest aching legs, we took the opportunity to explore the city further. After a hearty breakfast of croissants and omelettes we ambled around the streets within the ancient city walls, soaking up the French atmosphere and taking in the view over the St Lawrence River. We visited the excellent ‘Musee de la Civilisation’, learning more about the history of ‘Nouvelle France’, the conquest of Quebec by the British and the subsequent development of the distinct Quebecois society. It has been fascinating to explore the French-speaking parts of Canada and has added an extra dimension the coast to coast journey. We enjoyed a meal out, once again opting for some French cuisine. It’s time to get back on the road tomorrow, the eight-hour biking routine beckons!
