Day 32: Petawawa to Ottawa 185 km
Our day started with a great breakfast at our host’s Richard and Helen’s place at 6 am. Thank you Richard and Helen! Richard lead us over to the mayor’s office where we enjoyed a spirited visit with the mayor of Petawawa, Bob Sweet. Thank you Mayor Sweet for meeting us at 7:30 am!
We had a lunch stop and interview with a newspaper in Arnprior. What a beautiful town on the bank of the Ottawa River. A friend just happened to be at a stop light when we cycled past. So Hope joined us for lunch. She also volunteered to pick Jacquie up at the Ottawa airport! What a great friend! Thank you Hope.
With all the twists and turns we did not get in till 8:30 pm. That also included another flat tire! It was almost dark when we pulled in. Jacquie had dinner waiting. Sure is nice to have her back on the team after her quick trip back to Abbotsford! My friends Barb and Dave gave us use of their home for the weekend. Thank you Barb and Dave.
Rob lives in the Gatineau so will get to spend the weekend with his family. He has started to cycle a bit each day to prepare to rejoin us on cycling, maybe part time this next week.
