Sep 14, 2017 - Irish Loop Drive

Yahoo! The day started with the sun shining and after six days of rain it was such a relief. Today was the day to get in some more touring and this time we chose the Irish Loop (Route 10). First stop of the day was Cape Spear and another lighthouse. LOL. It is located in the Avalon peninsula and has operated since 1836. This is a National Historic Site of Canada with numerous warnings about the harshness of the wind and waves. Little did we know that today would be bittersweet. As we finished sitting in the Canada 150 red chairs at the most...

Cape Spear 129k September 3 The beginning of the ending. Those of us who could, have cycled EFI available to us. But that last missing segment from Argentia to St. John’s was irking me.

Sep 17, 2008 - Cape Spear

Our friends Jim & Bonnie drove to Cape Spear. It was wonderful to see the scenery on the way to Cape Spear. The lighthouse has been designated a Canadian National Historic Site.

We enjoyed having lunch with them at the Irish Loop Coffee House on the way back to St. Johns. It was amazing to hear the Irish accents in the coffee shop. After a really great day in St. Johns we...

Repositioning Cruise

Sep 5, 2007 - St. John's to Cape Spear, Newfoundland

Today marks a small milestone of sorts for me. I started my trip May 21 with the intent of riding to the farthest points north, west and east that can be reached by road in North America. The first point was Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. The second point was technically Manley, Alaska although I also road out to Telegraph Creek, the farthest point west by road in Canada, as well as Long Beach at Tofino on Vancouver Island. The third point is Cape Spear, Newfoundland, which Janine and I reached this morning. The total milage since May 21 is just over...
