Le Half-Tour de U.S. 2014 | Day 6

July 9, 2014

Coquitlam to Anacortes

Notes from today:

  • met vlad for breakfast
  • easy day because we did more travelling by ferry than we did by pedalling
  • relaxed for a couple of hours outside of a nice coffee shop in Sidney
  • met some very nice Kiwis at the Sydney ferry terminal
  • met Marco, a cyclist from Los Angeles, who is cycling to Mexico.
