A summer in Canada should never go to waste! Meagan bicycled across Canada during Summer 2013. She encountered many maintenance issues along the way (...perhaps more than normal?) but she sorted each problem as necessary. That being said, Meagan was the beneficiary of kind and generous folks along the way...folks who, without prompting, were just awesome:
Sunvalley Trout Park - Mission, BC
Mrs J Vowles - Chilliwack, BC
Summit Cycle - Golden, BC
Whispering Spruce Campground - Balzac, AB
Gearheads - Petawawa, ON
Trowbridge Falls Campground - Thunder Bay, ON
Pacific Coast Highway
(Victoria, BC to Tijuana)
July 2012 (26 days, 2700 km)
The coverage one can achieve by riding a bicycle is astounding! It is a simple way to explore cities, states, provinces, countries. Because of the pacing, you can achieve decent distances while being able to stop fairly easily and explore things that catch your interest. Riding is a highlight of life for Meagan! The pump of the pedals eeking up steep hills, the meditative stroke on flats, and the rush of coming down a hill - an easy way to find joy in the daily grind!
(Vancouver to St John's, Nfld)
July - September 2013 (49 days, 6742 km)
Meagan had to use her vacation days quick - so she decided to bike down the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH). "This is a bike trip that, while I was riding it, I thought, 'I can't wait to do this again!'" What an amazing experience!! Highly recommended. Beautiful scenery. Fun. Oregon is America's best kept secret!!
