We woke up in our comfy camper bed on our last morning! We were pretty excited - one because it rained heavily the night before and we were bone dry! (he he) and two, because... we would dip our front tires in the Atlantic ocean today - just like we had dipped our back tires in the Pacific Ocean, two months before...
Charles, Car and I had our best day of riding this trip! We maintained our 30km/hr average for the first 85km or so. We were driven by adrenaline, by the completion of a dream, and by... two cyclists who were in dire need of being humbled by a girl on a heavy tourning bike ... and two guys who I guess, seemed to look slower then they really are!
We made up for the overly confident (not so nice) duo, when we met an older gentlemen who was training for a bike race in Italy. He generously went off his course to show us how to get to Dartmouth Crossing ~ (bikers helping bikers)!
Shawna Ray ~ my sister ~ accompanies us to the "finish line" ... :o) Across Canada Accomplished!
After a yummy breakfast of fruit and yogurt, we decided to ride straight to Dartmouth where we would meet Martha for lunch at Jack Astor's. Carlin and I would then load our bikes back up with the panniers and ride the last 13km with my sister!
After lunch at Jack Astor's we met up with Shawna close to her home! She was our own personal tour guide and she lead us (12km) through the city to Pleasant Point Park! We finished our cross Canada cycling tour with her by our side! What an incredible feeling!
