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

By Erlendur in Canada 1040 views 25th Feb, 2021 Video Duration: N/A
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.
