Geoff's Tour
A Journal of My Bicycle Touring

Journey Notes

It was a cool start to the day. It was cloudy and quite windy. The good news was that the wind would be a tail wind for most of the day. I started by cycling down into Campbellton and over the Restigouche River to Pointe-à-la-Croix and back into Quebec.

The road to New Richmond is newly paved and has wide shoulders. There were even reminders to motorists that bicycles were using the road. The combination of nice road and tail winds allowed me to beat Rochelle to our lunch rendezvous point in Carleton by a couple of minutes.

A lot of the drive was right next to rock beaches. There were a number of seaside towns although it didn't feel right as it was quite cold compared to what we have experienced this summer. I fear that summer is rapidly fading into fall in this part of the world. We need to get to our destination quickly!

Another hour of riding in mostly head winds brought us to New Richmond where we will be visiting various aunts, uncles and cousins.

Tomorrow is a rest day but I will be back to riding on Friday.
