Now that I’m out of Manitoba, here are some observations on the province, and some things that I’ve learned (or relearned) about travelling.
First, some observations about Manitoba:
That is one flat province. I always thought that Saskatchewan was super flat, but Manitoba is definitely worse. Except right at the east before the border with Ontario, because that bit is super hilly.
There at a bunch of bugs in this province. I’m not particularly fond of these bugs. And they’re big.
Manitoba is not a fan of the paved shoulder. I wish they were.
And some things that I’ve learned (or relearned) about travelling:
The rain is following me. It’s been confirmed.
The only thing stopping me from cycling 150km in a day is my brain. This trip is 90% mental.
Don’t turn your back on anything valuable, even for a second.
Just because there’s supposed to be a prevalent wind, doesn’t make it true.
The weather network knows nothing.
