Thursday August 9th. Rivieres-Du-Loup to Grand Falls New Brunswick today. 191 kms. It was another good day for cycling with a nice tailwind. However there were lots of hills also and the promise of more tomorrow as I head for Fredericton. Beautiful pastoral countryside with gently rolling hills. Great roads in NB with wide smooth cycling shoulders. These past 2 days the cycling has been made easy for me with the assistance from my wife Mary to carry my panniers and take care of my nutrition needs and also for her moral support in assisting the completion of this cross Canada bicycle odyssey.


  1. Sean, just catching up with your blog today after being away with John to visit Clark in California. Looks like you've seen lots of people this week and glad to hear Mary arrived and the two of you are carrying on. I will be so glad to hear all about this when you get back and rested! Take care, happy trails, and hi to Mary!


  2. Sean:
    What an amazing journey you have had. I share your stories with my son who rode in the Ride to Conquer Cancer...218 km. He is impressed by what you have accomplished.

    Ride with gusto on the last leg of your trip and I am happy your wife has joined you to watch you finish your quest.

    Way to go Sean. Impressive!

    God Bless.
