Philly to Quebec City – Route

Adam and I did this trip end of Sept 2012. This doesn’t account for any of the backroads we took. But it gives an overall idea of the locations we hit.

Philly to Canada – day 16

Started out as an easy day riding. We climbed bear mountain in NY which was cool. Then headed home. About 50 miles north of Philly I got a flat front tire. Shit. So… We sat in a gas station and had a nice gas station dinner… Then I filled the tube with green slime which […]

Philly to Canada – day 15 pt2

Woke up to somewhat heavy rain and put the rain suit on and packed up camp. We headed down the road and got a great diner breakfast at a place called Country Girl Diner. The owner was nice and even packed us cookies to go for our wet ride ahead of us… 200 miles in […]

Philly to Canada – day 15

Ten reasons I’ll never come back to Albany: 1) it’s colder than Philly 2) no one lives downtown. Deserted city. 3) people look / act like mutants 4) everyone is fat 5) no motorcycle scene here 6) zero attractive girls… Unless you like fat chicks 7) no good food / restaurants 8) no good colleges […]

Philly to Canada – day 13

Last night in Portland. Our friend Adrienne is cooking dinner so we picked up some local beer by Ship Yard and Long Trail and carefully tied it to the Z1 rack. Earlier we toured the Allagash brewery and got slightly day drunk. Good tour and beers made for a slightly hazy day. Stopped by a […]

Philly to Canada – day 11

Last day in Acadia. So many things to do there and not enough time. One of the best parks I’ve been too on the east coast. We rode the scenic park loop (photo) and made it to the top of Cadillac mountain before taking off for Portland, Maine. We’ll be staying there with some good […]

Philly to Canada – day 10

Spent the day exploring Acadia. We finally got some great weather so we took full advantage of it. We did a short hike in the morning and then spent the rest of the day exploring the island on the cycles and enjoying the twisty roads. One of the many awesome views of the day.

Philly to Canada – day 9

Weather has been shit. Off and on rain that has kept us wet and off the cycles. While hiding out from the rain in the park visitor center we ended up talking to one of the younger park rangers (most of them were super old). She gave us a bunch of cool things to check […]

Philly to Canada – day 7

Camped out in St Georges, Quebec last night. There was a strip club within view of our campsite so obviously if you know Ed we had to go for at least a beer. Strangest, creepiest strip club that was more like a shed with some French hookers. Not a trip highlight. Ended the night hanging […]

We got an early start and got through customs and blasted into Canada. Customs lady was lame. We’ll see how it is crossing back into the states in a few days. Today sucked on the cycles. We hightailed it to Quebec City with a big storm that we tried to stay ahead of all day. […]

Woke up on the farm in New York and collected fresh eggs from the chicken coop to make the best breakfast. We decided to head up along lake George towards Burlington. A missed turn along the way put us on some of the best roads yet all through pine forests with no other cars on […]
