I left Newfoundland yesterday. It made me sad to leave the Rock - I loved my time in Newfoundland.

After the Johanna's Memorial Ride - Ride the Boot in the Burin penisula, my bike was loaded into the back of Tom Holletts truck fro the trip back to Port Aux Basque.  There would not be enough time for me to ride from Marystown to the ferry - at least not enough daylight hours....It felt stange seeing my bike in the back of a truck but in hindsight - I realize all things happen for a reason.  I got to spend some time with a fabulous man, take a break from the bike - which wasn't a bad thing and I didn't have to ride the western side of the island at night with all of the moose.

There was a muck up with my ferry and I ended up not having a cabin which made the 3 hours sleep I had gotten at the Port Aux Basque Hotel extra sweet. I want to thank Cathy Larmond for the amazing room and the jet tub - which I put to good use!

I will be writing about all of these things in an article later - I will have all the photos etc to go with it then...

Anyway - I made a decision to ride to Fredericton and then on to Riviere du Loupe and my next ferry instead of going via Bathurst - time is an enemy when things don't go right...

There are so many people that I have to thank for making my time on the Rock absolutely amazing and again I will get into that in a later article. I just wanted to update everyone... I am alive and kicking and looking forward to the next 7 -8 days in Quebec.

Until I can steal a few minutes to write again...
Ride like everyone around you is blind and can not see you.

  1. Excellent choice to truck to the ferry: moose and motorcycles surely don't meet well.
    If you're riding through Ontario - would love to meet up with you if time (yours) and work (mine)allow.
    Ride safe and enjoy the beautiful roads of Quebec.
