  1. Hi Bertrand, I enjoyed meeting you yesterday, it was the high point of my day. Made me wish I was pedaling along with you.
    Gave your blog to my daughter so, I think she might be in touch. She’s now finished her ride in Belgium and is sightseeing till Sunday when she’ll be returning to Japan.
    Keep in touch.

    • Hey Brian,

      Was quite nice our meeting yesterday and hope we can ride one day all together. Who’s know maybe one day we can be all in the same area and have a nice ride. Was quite odd that I cross Canada by Bicycle and that in the same time your daughter is riding in my home country. The world is small! Take care and for sure we keep in touch!
