Hi everyone! This is Mischa here. It’s been four months since Danielle and I landed in St Johns after cycling 8000 km across Canada and only now have we been able to truly reflect and begin to grasp the impact that this trip has had on our lives. Here are three things that we learned […]

The Final Ride

The finish line

It has been a while since our last post, but we are glad to say that we made it! We spent a lovely week with Dani’s family. They arrived with matching team head bands and bikes ready to ride. We met them in Matane, and spend our first night sheltering from the rain and talking […]

Breakdowns on the Highway

More rain

Waking up to rain always prompts a lazy morning filled with procrastination. Suddenly you find the need to stretch in the morning, meticulously fold your clothes and brush your hair for the first time in weeks.
