53 miles, 2,037 ft of climbing. Grande Riviera to New Carlisle.

It was a beautiful day for a ride, and today was short by our recent standards, so we took our time. Some headwinds to deal with through the last half, but John and I have synced up enough to know when we need to switch leads to save our energy.

The highlight of the day was arriving at our warm showers hosts’. There is a whole family complex, and two houses that were built from railroad cabooses.

Gui (pronounced Ghee) and Anne have what amounts to a paradise by the beach. One thing we did notice about the whole of the Gaspésie is that it is mostly single family homes and very little commercial development. Gui thinks it will stay that way. Let’s hope so. Meanwhile, we’re enjoying this little slice of heaven while we can.
