My Bicycle Trip Across Canada: Day 66: Broken Pedal

July 2nd: somewhere, NL to Grand Falls-Windsor: 150km


Slept for 12 hours. Woke up at 8. Such a beautiful view.

For lunch we stopped at a placed called Eddy’s. Met these two motorcyclists, cycling through Labrador. They were older but obviously hardcore. Really nice guys.



I think we ended up in Grand Falls-Windsor early-ish. Yeah, around 7. We stayed with couchsurfing hosts Paul and Britt. My left pedal broke, so I got a ride with Paul to the Canadian Tire. The pedal was so hard to get off [I was probably turning it the wrong way, truth be told] Plus the one I bought looks like crap. Hope it lasts!


Britt made us pasta dinner, and Paul gave us beer. We chatted about our trip and heard Britt and Paul’s stories: optometrist from Saskatchewan and Calgary, respectively, who met in Waterloo.
