Day 1 of actual riding from #Halifax toward #Toronto for charity is done! Rode about 60 km on my 20 year old bike with heavy packs. Lots of rolling roads – great downhills, some very challenging uphills. Was a misty, cloudy day for the most part.
That night, in Newport Station, I stayed in a glamping (glamorous camping) tent. What a treat. I mean, it wasn’t the Ritz Carlton. But it had electric lighting, charging outlets (for my phone, bike lights and laptop), plus a huge comfy bed. I’d picked up a frozen steak and fresh veggies along the route. How wonderful they tasted grilled over a fire pit on my private chunk of land.
Around 4:00 a.m. it began to rain ferociously. The drops pounded against the tent.
