My two cycling buddies and I left Kenora and cycled on a very busy HWY. After every turn we expected the Prairies to start but we still saw only hills and forest. None of us, neither the guys from Montreal nor me every have been in the Prairies. However, at the ON/MB border we parted ways, I wanted to join The Great Trail again, they wanted to stick to the roads. A few minutes later we met again, my trail went on the road they wanted to take as well, haha. We rode to Rennie and camped one last time together and parted ways a second time the next morning.

Long distance short - from Rennie to Winnipeg I cycled on and off the trail, checking out the conditions, evaluatied and debated multiple times if trail or road. But see for yourself.

23 to 30 June: The ferry brought me over to Saint-Siméon, from where I cycled NW towards Saguenay. The fjord of the Saguenay River was very impressive and mystical. The rain and low clouds contributed a lot to this atmosphere. A day ride further I arrived in La Baie with blue sky and sunshine.
From there I made my way to Lac Saint-Jean, where I joined onto the "Véloroute des Bleuets" ("Blueberry cycling route"). I was told, that this is the prime location for cyclists and I definitely should cycle around the whole lake. Well, I skipped the whole Maritimes, therefore had enough time to explore. So I did it. Easy riding, small towns around the lake, perfect infrastructure. A small bicycle ferry in Alma and the best sunset on my whole trip. Friendly guys in the local bike coop "Vélo-jeunesse" and a beer in a local brewery - the highlights of that detour.

01 July: I left the "Véloroute des Bleuets" behind me and reflected my journey through Québec on "La Route Verte", the provincial cycling network. I talk shortly about my safety preparations for the long stretch ahead, after all I was going into the unknown. Once I reached the turnoff from the HWY my concerns were gone - the dirt road was damn busy. A lot of cars and trucks meant, I wasn't alone but also had to deal with clouds of dust and flies, sometimes even at the same time.

I also tell a short anecdote about a very unexpected encounter. Last but not least in this longer video, I recorded a clip in a forestry camp, where I spent the night. Life is full of surprises.

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.
