The Tour Begins (bags not full of EPO in our case)
Don and Jeff at 7:30am wednesday morning.
Off the bridge and Getting geared up
OK. we got lost. fair enough. took us all of 8minutes to make a 30min miscalculated detour.
Following winds and relativly quiet roads under sunny skies. not too shabby.
Stopped on the warf at Summerside on the way west. sammich time.
Looking Ahead. looooong straight trails.
it didn't really look anything like this.
every road intersection on the trail had one of these mofo's.
No matter what, don't plan to stop and have a bite in Portage PEI. the ol bastard inside wasn't friendly.
no helmet? but on the trail there was zero danger...and it was friggin hot.
In O'leary. by all means stop here and eat. nice folks, good eats.
The menu. i had the chicken tortilla and a baked potato. mmm.
our first IBC contact. (islander by choice). more were to follow.
Entering Campbellton PEI.
Pure tailwind touring. these sweet miles went by far too quickly.
At a wharf near our destination of Tignish.
the TCX in sport-touring regaila. a good choice on my part.
Triva time: who was born here?
The cottage in Tignish. 66$ a night. sweet digs for a good price. later we enjoyed beer and pasta/pizza/donairs! 179km was our total for day 1. just over 7.5hrs.
Still stinking after a good handwash. oh well
Looking west at north cape.
Windpower at work. pretty cool stuff.
My closest rival...errr touring partner.
Shitty ass little diner serving food equal to its atmosphere.
Back on the road, day 2. east now, into a side/headwind gusting to 50k.
i'm not sure what this is about.
Jeffery croozin into the downtown core about 2hrs east of tignish.
