Day 72: Tuesday, 31 July, 1984

Up at 8:30. Had a great breakfast and rode off down the Richelieu River. Eventually got onto Hwy 132 and followed that for quite a while.

Eventually stopped for groceries and then lunch by the roadside. Stopped for ice cream once or twice as well. Stopped to get tourist info. My French was much needed, so I had to scrape some of the rust off it.

Met a cyclist out training who told me how to get across the bridge to Trois-Rivieres. So I did. Found the youth hostel. Ate supper and then played Risk (lost) with a couple of guys. La Riske Francaise.


Mont-St.-Hilaire to Trois-Rivieres, Que.
Trip Odometer: 7,477.7 km
