In the summer of 2013, we cycled across Canada, beginning at Mile 0 of the Trans Canada Highway and ending in St. John’s, Newfoundland. This was our first cycle trip of any significant length. We had talked about crossing Canada by bike for some time and, now that Paul had retired from full-time work, we had the freedom to take several months to do it. It was a leisurely trip, with stops to visit friends along the way and explore parts of Canada from a slower perspective. We loved the trip and have been hooked on cycle-touring ever since!

As we travelled across the country, we endeavoured to acknowledge First Nations’ traditional territories that we were crossing.
