So we spent the night in Rivere du Loup. We meet our friend Matthew and he showed us around town. He took us to a local park with some of his friends.
Afterwards we went to a local brewery, “Microbrasserie Aux Fous Brassant”, for a few beers. We made some new friends and learners about the periodic table of beer styles.
After a few beers, OK maybe more than a few, we went to grab poutine. This was followed by some more beers when we encountered our new friend Vincent once again, Vincent est fantastic! We also made more new friends!
After walking to the hostel we were staying at we realized we hadn’t packed anything. The next morning after 4 hours sleep we left and biked about 85km, not too bad, still not at 100 yet.
We stopped at a lookout point that evening because it looked like we might be able to setup our tent.
Here we ran into Gabriel, he was on his way Gaspe. We had a small fire and some good conversation. In the morning we shared a breakfast and Gabriel mentioned his friend in Quebec City, Frederick, and gave us his number. After that we went off on our separate adventures.
So we continued on the 132 toward Quebec City.
We made Levis and took the ferry to Quebec. Both these cities have the best bike trails I have ever seen.
Did I mention that to get to Quebec, even with the ferry ride, we biked over 100km in one day! That also means we have broken 1000km! Time to celebrate!
While we were enjoying some local brews we met a couple that was woofing, Margerie (not sure on the spelling) and Kevin. We talked with them and they feed us some carrots. Afterwards we talked to Frederick and he showed us where we could set up our tent. Everyone has been very helpful and nice to us. We ran into some friends from Rivere du Loup, but we were far too tired to stay out. We slept like rocks.
We woke up and ran some errands, got some things for the bike. We also got some much needed advice on some bike issues we were having. We decided to spend the day enjoying the city and doing some bike maintenance. We met some great people and even tried some slack lining in the park. The parks here are amazing! Sorry no pictures, I still have to consciously think to take them. So we are gonna camp in the same spot and continue on to Montreal, via the 138. If anyone knows of anything we should check out there let me know. Until next time.
