The ConnecTour team had the opportunity of being hosted by a Warmshowers couple in the heart of Ottawa’s Centre-Ville district, beside the Ottawa River. But the overnight campout in the backyard was filled with drama.
In the middle of the night, Lynn Marshall was awaken by someone sneaking into the back yard. Fearing the person was trying to steal some of the team’s expensive touring bicycles, she confronted the apparent intruder aggressively, threatening him and shouting at him to leave.
Then, moments after that incident, Lynn discovered someone trying to crawl into her tent.
But intrusions are not always what they seem. Lynn, and fellow rider, Andy Williamson, recount the amusing turn of events in this short video:

Thank you for that one. I had a good laugh with my coffee this morning!
It was great to have you all here! We had a good chuckle… you are all still welcome anytime. Nico survived the incident 🤣
Lynn, at 4’8″ is a formidable force! Skulkers beware!
Too funny…though at the moment super traumatic for Niko and Lynn both. It is Niko’s backyard after all! Many thanks to Carel and Richard for hosting us and BEWARE future intruders….ConnecTour has a guard dog! As far as Andy goes…that’s another story.
So fun to have you all here Tanya and Rick and co! You are welcome anytime!!
Carole, Richard, Nico and Annabelle
Andy’s wife here. You can’t send that miscreant home, and you can’t keep him. Dilemma!
