Chapter 12: Ottawa, Ontario

“Here we are now Still standing strong We’ll keep walking on Makes you wonder how far we’ve come” -Woodlove With a blink of an eye, we have reached the inevitable end of our year-long science tour across Canada. It is a bittersweet moment to have to say good-bye to a team that essentially became my…

Chapter 11F: Québec City, Québec

Finally, we arrived at our last stop in Québec: Québec City. Initially, we had problems finding a venue that could accommodate our exhibit and presentation requirements, but finally, Cégep Limoilou (Charlesburg campus) responded and agreed to host us. We could not be more thrilled with this location. The Cégep was equipped with a loading dock…

Montréal would prove to be the most memorable stop for all the wrong reasons. While big cities generally meant more things to do around town, it also meant we had to deal with more traffic and tighter spaces. Collège de Maisonneuve was in a pretty busy part of town and it did not have the…

Part 1: Canadian Rockies (Day 1 – Day 18)

We started our adventure in Calgary, where we were fortunate to have a place to stay and assemble our bikes together. There was still a lot to do: pick up more food, put together the front rack, organize all the bags….calm our nerves? I would be lying if I didn’t say we were nervous, after…
