This impromptu and eclectic Summer vacation and ride combined a number of different rides and trips into one two-week package. I rode part of the way alone, camping, and then my wife joined me, and we proceeded by B&B. I rode from Montreal to Quebec City via the North Shore. Then, after a days drive to Rivière-du-loup, I rode from there to Sainte-Flavie. Thus, I closed the gap in my rides along the Saint Lawrence. Over the span of 1992 to 2004, I have ridden the entire length of the Saint-Lawrence, from Kingston to Gaspé. We spend a day together touring the famous Métis Gardens of Sainte-Flavie. Then I rode up and over the spine of the Gaspé peninsula, descending the Matapedia Valley to Campbellton, New Brunswick. At Campbellton, we put the bike away and drove to the seaside town of Alma, on the Bay of Fundy.

My Lord Jesus Christ, receive my thanks for his constant companionship, help, guidance, and protection, without which I would never have been able to accomplish what I did.
May my dear wife, Sheryl receive my thanks for her spending two weeks to tag along with me and be my companion, sending me off in the morning being there to receive me at the end of the day.
