  8. Great accomplishment! The weather in New Brunswick has been fantastic this past week for re-roofing my son’s house. 5 days of no rain and a lot of work! Although, I would have preferred to have continued biking with ConnecTours! God willing, I will be able to bike with you in 2023???

  9. Congratulations! Amazing accomplishment. All the things the rest of us have done and have been doing since you passed through Nelson, and you have been cycling, day in day out, through that whole time!
