Week 14 Update

Last week was the longest and toughest seven days of my coast to coast to coast bicycle journey across Canada as you have probably read and to be honest, I wish that it stays so and that I only have better days ahead. Week 14 was pretty relaxed compared to the previous one. On Monday, [...]

Week 13 Update

As, I wrote in the last post, Week 12 was a very fast ride from Halifax to Sydney where I would catch the ferry to Newfoundland, the island-province far in the Atlantic and Canada's most easterly coast. Week 13 started off with a little bit of sightseeing around 20km from Sydney as a new friend took me [...]

Week 12 Update

This week was no joke as it was all about cycling and cycling and cycling. My mission was to ride from Halifax to North Sydney where I'd catch the ferry to Newfoundland. To do so, I had to cycle 500 km in less than a week. I was fortunate to have good hosts in Halifax [...]

Week 11 Update

Week 11 in Halifax was pretty relaxed as I was preparing for the next month that would be filled with many rides and the unknown. On Tuesday, I performed a live DJ gig at Long & McQuade in Halifax, a set that was streamed to over 5000 people on Facebook and eventually made it on YouTube [...]

Week 10 Update

Week 10 started off quietly with lots of socialising and little cycling because after all The Big Journey is also about connecting with Canadians across Canada.

Remember how week 6 started off in a rather dull manner and ended with a long ride that I had to abandon because it was so challenging? Week 7 was no walk in the park either but lord was it full of fun adventures and moments that I will forever cherish as you will read [...]

Week 6 Update

Week 6 was an equally uneventful week as Week 5 as there was almost seven days of heavy snowfall in the regions so I stayed indoors and was just working on music and travel logistics. I also put that "dead time" to good use by eating properly and sleeping since these are very essential to [...]

Week 5 Update

Last week was adventure-filled as I did not ride much waiting for the weather to clear. There was so much snow that the only thing to do was just to embrace it instead of crying about it. But first! I got some amazing press coverage in Edmundston's weekly French newspaper. That was pretty exciting! Click [...]
