Re: Faro to st-malo

I did Faro to Avranches, not too far from st. Malo. Unintentional as I broke a freehub there. November 2019. Great ride.

Re: Air Canada and Canada in general - well the flight was good...

Crossed Canada last year, and as has been said, Ontario was the worst experience, as it took a few weeks to cross it had to be. Some of it was great. tho new Brunswick gives it a a good go too.! Crap drivers mainly. Overall I loved it. As you say different from USA. Not so bike friendly.
