75 miles, 2561 ft of climbing from Campbellton New Brunswick to Val Brilliant.

Beautiful day, nice and warm but not too hot, and all the climbing was that about 1%. I followed the Matapédia River for almost 60 miles. It was like riding a rail trail it was so gradually up. Early morning traffic was light, but if I’m much busier today we’re on with lots of trucks and campers heading in both directions. Later in the afternoon we got off of the main road 132 and we’re on some lovely back roads. Hard to tell the terrain from Pennsylvania except that the majority of the trees here are pine.

We’re camping tonight in Val Brilliant, Quebec on the lake that feeds the river. Beautiful night to follow the beautiful day, the rain expected tomorrow so we’re getting up at Dawn and hope to be on the bikes by 6:00 to get as far as we can before the rain hits. We’ll be getting to Rimouski and staying with Philip again.
