Small towns in Quebec are sweet like strawberries
Route: Montreal – Chez Denise – Batiscan – Quebec City
Campground: Camping chez Denis and Marina au Batiscan
3 Amazing things:
- These past few days, I successfully brought up my average to 19kms/hr and felt comfortable doing it. It means I got to places faster and I didn’t even feel too tired at the end of the day. Success!
- Batiscan was a cute little town right on the rivers edge. It is rare to find any English speakers in small town Quebec, and that has created some challenges, but somehow I have still found my way. The bartenders at the restaurant near the campsite were very friendly and enjoyed practicing their English and they taught me how to say ” I don’t know how to speak French”
- I met another cyclist, who is biking the east coast of Canada! He is going to follow the coast line up from Rivière du loop, which is a new route that I had not heard of before. Best of luck Fred!
- Futons are actually the best invention.
