Noticed front hub had play just before leaving Saint John. Got it sorted at the bike shop before leaving town no problem.

Fun day on the trail. Saw a moose. Had to detour around 2 missing bridges. Stopped early at a hut for dinner, nice to be out of the mosquitoes. Camping near St. George, looking forward to Tim Hortons for breakfast.

Some trail, some road. Had to make a big detour where the New Brunswick Trail didn't exist.

Tough day. Left quad/knee giving me some trouble,mosquitoes are CRAZY and I can't stop for even ten seconds! Broke frame bag zip and lost rack bolt. Push onwards in the rain heading for a cabin, but it turned out to be full of mosquitoes so I had to put my tent up inside. Raining really hard outside and I have some repair work to do.

Also 1100m of ascent!

Good day of trail riding. Saw a bear, a lynx and a moose! Weird arriving in to Woodstock, weird feel to the town. Sat in Tim Hortons and planned my next stop.

Nice section along the river before the heavens opened! Luckily made it inside the tent before the worst of it.

Nice old railroad trail along the Saint John river all day. Lots of small towns. Had to service my front hub on the side of the trail :-/ Seems to be holding up.

Two Border Collies followed me for a REALLY long time. In the end I had to work hard to outpace them in order to loose the tail.

All road from Grand Falls. Boooo! The thought of a day off kept me going. Arrive in Edmunston to find the hotel on top of a big hill! Biked all around town, but no booze! Got to the liquor store 12 minutes after closing. Pizza and poutine for dinner.

Nice bit of old railway trail through some fancy lakeside vacation towns. There is definitely a lot of money around.

Managed to get my resupply, the package was at the wrong post office one town over. Was interesting figuring that out with very poor French on my part and poor English on the other side!

All ATV trails now, feels much more remote šŸ™‚
