North Québec (Bike breakdown, a stroke of luck, Goodbye Québec)

02 to 09 July: I left the pow-wow place of Obedjiwan and followed the dirt roads through Québec's North. Unlike the section from Saint-Félicien to Obedjiwan, this stretch had less traffic. Furthermore, once around the North of the Gouin Reservoir, I followed a road leading South and luckily I did not take a look at my map and followed the signs instead.

Apparently the main way leading to Senneterre was changed to another dirt road which isn't mapped nor in Google Maps or in OSM. The previous road still exists, but probably has even lesser to none traffic.
Normally I would not have cared but the universe was on my side. Exactly on that stretch my tire burst. Nothing I could do. Imagine this would have happened on that other road.

I had a huge stroke of luck getting a ride into Senneterre and even more luck getting a new tire in that small village. Going further West I took the decision based on the location of some warmshowers host, to go to La Sarre and to continue to Ontario on a forestry road North of Lake Abitibi. A very unconventional route for a cyclist too.

In this week's "Supporting Local Tourism" I was invited to travel to Ancient Hill Winery in Kelowna BC. A smaller winery location just behind the Kelowna International Airport this winery offers a premier selection of wines.
The winery open 7 days a week from 10:30 am-5:30 pm is family and dog (on leash) friendly. Come and eat on the patio (with a purchase of a glass of wine per adult), enjoy the views and the beautiful architecture!
It is a perfect location and way to support local tourism!
