Day 1807, Howley – Badger: 500 km to go…

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Dec - 27 - 2015

Distance: 118.3 km
Ride time: 6:50:52
Average: 17.3 km/h
Max speed: 40.3 km/h
Total: 43222 km

I woke up next to the road, and after spending all day cycling, I also put up my tent next to it by night – today was all business out here on the Trans Canadian Highway.

In the town of Springdale I paused for a moment. From here the road takes a southern turn, which means that this will be the Northern most point in the Americas for me! From here St. John’s is south and east. It will be strange not having the sun pass over me from right to left as the day goes by, as it has done for a year.

During the day the weather had stayed dry, but at 6 o’clock the rain came. I have learned that it rains a lot on Newfoundland. I stopped and put up my tent before it got too crazy. I’m now down to two pair of dry socks…

500 km to go to St. John’s and the end of the road. In the big picture not a long way, but if the rain continues it might be 500 tough kilometers.

  1. How many socks do you carry? They’re not listed in your packing list. 🙂
