|On June 1 2005 Cheryl and I set out from our home in Victoria BC and
headed east for a 3 month trip. Our destination was St. John's
Newfoundland. I rode my bicycle the whole way there, while Cheryl drove
our VW Westfalia. We drove back together.
I originally kept a blog of the trip while we were on the road. I have reformatted that blog to make it a bit easier to refer to, and I have added some more photos in some areas, along with a few extra comments.
During the trip I carried a Garmin Rino 130 GPS. At the end of each day, I uploaded the GPS data to my computer. For the interest of other cyclists out there, where there were big hills (mostly BC, northern Ontario, and a couple of days in the maritimes), I have included vertical profile data, wherever the data was good (occasionally the GPS would loose lock due to the surroundings, and some days I ran out of batteries!). This image is viewable by clicking on the "Bike Log" text for each day.

The trip back: August 7-August 27
