I spent yesterday in Tofino relaxing in the sun, surfing, enjoying the company of Mark, Mel and the other friends I have met since my arrival. I also finally got around to prepping my baggage for the journey. Other then my iPod shuffle and a trip journal there isn’t much space for amenities.
I am set to embark this morning and am preparing spend my days for the next two months biking over all types of terrain, to the tune of about 150km a day. My nights will be spent camping roadside or couch surfing with friends generous enough to put me up.
Today’s itinerary calls for me to put about 165 km behind me en route to Qualcum Beach where I will be staying with one of Matthew’s closest university friends Tammy Albright from Dalhousie. I am not entirely sure what to expect as I begin my journey but am excited for every twist, turn and bump along the way.
I will be sure to post pictures, updates and tweets as much as I can throughout the day so that all of you can follow along. As always, please help me to spread the word about organ and tissue donation by asking your friends and family members to register as donors.
