Today I biked to Sherbrooke. I woke up late again today and left around 1000 - I think I was still tired even after a rest day at PEI. I didn't know how far I would make it today but I wanted to go far. I wanted to make it to the ferry to Newfoundland as soon as possible. I still had time before the flight on 24th but I don't like to rush at the end. Today was sunny so I knew I had to go as far as I can.
Biking today was very hilly and I took few pictures. Instead of pictures I was enjoying the ride and ocean side views. Despite the beautiful views I did not think I could capture the beauty. There were few shoulders and the traffic was light. There were many chocolate bottles on the side of the road - not beer cans, not Tim Hortons...strange. Every time I saw a chocolate bottle on this sparsely populated stretch of road - I laughed at the absurdity. I reached Sheet Harbour and had lunch there. I left Sheet Harbour around 1700 and had 80km till Sherbrooke. I wasn't sure how far I would make it but I was going to push hard.
I ended up biking into town once it was dark. I didn't like biking out in the dark so towards the end I was sprinting. At one point I had to bike around a porcupine (?).
