Can you see the three black pins in my map of Canada? Squint a little - it helps! I started my incredible basement biking odyssey in London, ON which is the pin at bottom left. The pin that is near the centre is where I am now having cruised through Montreal, and the pin top right is stuck into Alberton, PEI, my final destination. It would appear as if I'm halfway through my journey, but alas, due to the scarcity of roads in New Brunswick I will be travelling around New Brunswick more so than through it.
After last night's ride I have "travelled" 722km and have 1180km left to go. I would like to be halfway there by the end of March which is 221 more kms. I don't think I can manage that in only 12 more days but I'll give it my best shot. I fell behind quite a bit with that virus hanging on and on but am pedalling like a mad witch now. (think Wizard of Oz!)
Tonight Michael and I are heading to the John Labatt Centre (we Canadians are so proud of our beer we name our stadiums after it!) to see Sarah Mclachlan, one of Canada's most talented singers. The tickets were a gift for his ____th birthday. You can guess! He loves to tell people I'm older, though really only by 8 months!
Here's one of her more famous songs:
After the concert we'll likely head to Maggies, listen to some jazz, and sip a couple of martinis, or Blueberry Tea(Grand Marnier & Amaretto...oh yeah and a little orange pekoe) - yum! A couple of lowbrows having a highbrow night - tee hee! I'll make sure I hold my pinkie out at the correct angle:)
Hope your weekend is going swell and that it's not snowing where you are!
