Day 2 – Louiseville to Sainte-Anne-de-la-Perade

Title 2: Really weather is that necessary? Really??

What is there to say about today? Well remember yesterday when I was talking about the wind and the rain? Today was worse.
Way worse.
It was one of those days where you keep asking yourself why you’re doing this. Why didn’t I just stay home, stay dry, make other plans.

Here is the short summary of today: rain, wind, bike, rain, wind, bike…..

Trois Rivieres was interesting some very historic buildings, but winding to get through. I realize that I mainly kept my head down to fight the wind, so I probably missed a lot.

We did take one photo today, but not on my camera. It is the most dangerous cycling surface ever. This bridge was iron and a honeycomb surface, slick with rain, and slippery as hell. We ended up walking the bridge and holding up traffic. Pics to follow.

We ended up almost blind in the rain, drenched to the bone, but hit a little town and found a nice bed and breakfast to weather the storm and spend the night. As I write this it is pouring rain and the forecast is for 20-25mm rain overnight. Add time that wind warning of up to 90km gusts we did well not camping.

Tomorrow we will have breakfast here and hit the road. We have 80km to Quebec city then the rest of tomorrow off and Tuesday to explore the city. The weather is meant to improve in the short term, but I am concerned about the rest of the trip at this point.
