Packing up and heading out

Pretty much packed up and ready to head out tomorrow. 

We will be taking 2 days to drive to get to Sydney, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia then cycle about 25 kms to the ferry in North Sydney. First stop on the drive will be Fredericton, New Brunswick and then Sydney, Nova Scotia, Puffy's home town! Maybe we'll have a chance to see the "Wolrd's Largest Fiddle"? The ferry to Newfoundland will take about 5-6 hours so it will be a long few days ahead until we can get on the bikes. Until then, Puffy is going to relax and soak up the beautiful landscapes of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia!

Thank you

Thank you to Merriam Print for donating 50 cards to the ride. Now Puffy will be able to share Phoebe's story with more people. Also, one of my colleagues from last year made the first donation (and I wasn't even on planning on getting many donations) so a huge thank you!

Less than one week to go!

Puffy has arrived!

Puffy has finally arrived in Ottawa after a long trip from Sydney, Cape Breton, NS! He was so excited to get some real training under his belt so I, the Tutu Bicycle Navigator, took Puffy on a 42 km ride and a 100 km ride this past weekend. Puffy also had some time to reflect about this big journey that lies ahead of him.

Stay tuned for Puffy to start blogging in the next couple of weeks! Until then, check out the photos of Puffy during our rides this weekend.
