In today’s health conscious world more and more people have opted to return to an older mode of transportation – pedal power. We are getting more and more cyclists willing to explore this vast country by bicycle.
Andrea and his friend Georgina, two veteran cyclisyts from Italy,? have come to explore eastern Canada. Their month long tour will cover well over a thousand miles, They left Toronto today heading for Ottawa via the beautiful Algonquin Provincial Park.
As with most long-distance cyclists, Andrea and Georgina are strong, healthy and athletic. Andrea looks as if he could comepete in an Iron Man competition and Georgina is built like a gymnast and appears to have zero percent body fat, with legs to die for!
The pair began bike trekking about seven years ago when they? cycled around Nepal, Since then, they have? done the same in Austria, Switzerland, Norway and now, Canada.? Since that first expedition to Nepal the two have returned to Nepal on a hiking trip to the base camp of Mount Everest.
The pair plans to explore the countryside at what, according to them, is a? moderate pace of 80 – 100 kms per day. They plan to be back with us here at the Canadiana Hostel within the month. We certainly look forward to seeing them again and hearing all about their adventures on the road.
Andrea and Georgina (Two for the Road)?
All packed and heading north.
