But good rain gear and a support vehicle required.
What difference a big breakfast makes to a day's start! The motel provided a minimal continental breakfast but after a bowl of cereal and 5 pieces of toast, Bryan went down the road for ham and eggs to top it off before starting out.
he left at 9:30 and had covered 91km by 1:45. We bypassed Moncton but stopped at Shediac for supper at 4:00. This is the self-proclaimed lobster capital of the Maritimes and we ate at Subway! Bryan had hoped to bike the rest of the way to Port Elgin that night yet. A severe thunderstorm and very heavy rain became just too much to ride in so I picked Bryan up halfway there and we continued on to Port Elgin and a hot shower.
Bryan still covered 175 km today in all kinds of weather. That raincoat of his is a marvel! We have seen so much rain these past days. When so the people around here get their lawns cut? It has been humid but not sultry. We can't wait for the sun to come out though.
Tonight, Bryan cleaned his chain, and has settled into watching the opening day of the Tour de France. He's still pumped about his own personal Tour de Canada. Charlottetown tomorrow! Total kilometres: 6000
