This trip is our Plan B. Originally we were going to try to cycle across Canada, but the stars were not aligned for that trip. In March I bought a new bike even though there was nothing wrong with my old bike Wanda. I ended up straining both knees riding on it because it was not set up in the right configuration. I am back on Wanda and slowly getting stronger, but a flatter route with a train line paralleling it seems like a better idea for this year. The rocky mountains and the steep short hills in Northern Ontario might have done me in for good. If I am going to be stranded somewhere I guess I would rather be stranded in a village in France than in Wawa. My apologies to Wawaians, I have not actually been to your cultural mecca, and I am sure it is lovely place.
