Day 51, Quebec City to St. Denise QC

I wasn’t looking forward to getting up this morning with the prospect of putting the tents away in the rain. However, when we did get up, the sky was clearing. We all ate the campsite, and were on our way by 12:00pm.

It took us an hour to get out of the city with all the traffic lights. We hit 5 reds in a row at one point. As we made it out of Quebec, the scenery was once again remarkable. The St. Lawrence to the left, old farm houses to the right. With the sun and great bike paths again, the ride was amazing.

Our schedule today was only 90k, but we decided to go further with the weather being so favorable. The scenery started to change with fields now filled with grain and not just corn. We were somewhat elevated on the road, so we could see the fields for some distance.

We rode 151k today to a town called St. Denise. There wasn’t a campsite, so we drove 10k back to the previous town. It was 10:00pm by the time we made camp, so we all made dinner quickly (I made rice in the laundry room) and went to bed.
