My first 100 km bike ride
Some of my friends have ridden the entire 880 kilometer distance from Port aux Basques to St. John's. I contemplated doing it this year but with Covid-19 plans have changed. Instead this year I decided to test my setup with a couple of back to back 100 km rides.
I left from Holyrood destined for an overnight camp at LaManche.
... over solid ground here hemmed in by trees. The trees and undergrowth are kept back by the use of all terrain vehicles. In some places the railbed has been turned into dirt roads that people use to commute to cabins at various places.
I set up my tent, cooked supper, all the while swatting away black flies, and started a small fire to keep the flies away. As the fire burned down I got ready to hit the hay after a good days riding quite pleased with myself.
