Newfoundland starts

Location: Newfoundland, Canada

From stepping off the ferry, nah, from stepping on the ferry at Sydney, we have loved Newfies and newfoundland. From rolling hills and rugged coasts... this is how it begins.

Ever seen a railway line go this close to a beach? The dunes were on the trail. Nice beach too!

A rare double shot - on the ocean trail, taken by Margaret, also biking across Newfoundland.

Tim rides past the wreckhouse mountain funnel - cranks up winds to over 200km/hr.

Not so nice for swimming the next day. A taste of the winds and rains of the atlantic coast.

Nick, trying not to get dragged down by his bike, over the remains of a dodgy man made bridge up onto the trestle. The adventures of the trail!

The long range mountains, and one of the many lakes we passed. Its pretty wild out here, and empty.

Then once you're on one of the trestles, theres a fair chance that it will have massive gaps, bits missing, tilted sideways, always an adventure!

And finally, half an hour later, we have our gear on top. In the rain, wind, lucky we have a sense of humour.

And rivers and forests and rocks and moose and hunters.....

A good trestle, with a good view. A solid cliff of Bauxite. Don't tell BHP or they'll be over here in a flash.

But its not all bad.... just look at the forests, mountains all around. Newfoundland is wild and beautiful.

And some very wet feet...... Nick in one of the washouts we had to cross.
