Day 50: Codroy Valley Campground to Corner Brook 183 km
We could still hear distant thunder as we got breakfast and prepared to start another day of riding. Rob has set the whole ride up on a system called Map My Tracks. Each day’s ride is rated with a scale of 1 to 4, 4 being the most difficult. Today is rated as a 4. Our ride started shortly after 6:30 am, the sun was just coming up. We had lots and lots and of hills, very long hills with some thrilling down hill runs. The morning was mostly sunny, many section of the road was wet from rain. Some great views…Most of the afternoon was in the rain. In the rain, going down hill at about 55 km/hour I started thinking… “I’m moving really fast, I can’t see very well. One pot hole or large crack in the road could be really bad news. Be careful” Another option could have been to slow down…Our destination, Corner Brook is a beautiful city. First Pentecostal Church hosted us. They had a good group out for our presentation. A very warm group and asked lots of good questions. Today is Rob’s 60th birthday! That’s why he’s holding a balloon. The church had a cake for him. Thank you First Pentecostal for making Rob’s birthday a special one!Even with the rain it was a good day, lots of great view. We enjoyed the challenge of the hills and the fun of the down hills. It will be a memorable one for Rob!
