Breakfast for Day 2 of Experiment was very similar to what we had yesterday. It already is starting to taste much better. We managed to meet our 8 am departure even though we had to deal with a flat tire on the trailer. It is amazing how quickly you can get the job done when threatened by mosquitoes. The distance set for today was 80 km given the strength of the headwind, East 20 km/h with gusts to 30.

Our first destination was Trois-Rivières. Trois-Rivières is mostly known for being halfway between Montreal and Quebec City and that is a shame. It has much to offer architecturally and artistically and let's not forget the car racing.
|Musée des Ursulines|
|A cool new building and right next to La Route Verte|
|Hélène's favorite kind of bridge, separated from the traffic|
|Part of the grounds at Our Lady of the Cape|
|Rosary Bridge at Our Lady of the Cape|
We could have easily spent a few days in Trois-Rivières but we had to make progress. We knew that following Le Chemin du Roy, it would not take long before we would be stopped again to investigate something unusual.

Experiment: Last night, we did not eat the mashed potatoes that we added to the evening meal to make up the calories as neither of us were hungry enough. Tonight, we shared the potatoes but I did not eat the second of the meals. Just not hungry enough. I only had one bar and a small amount of trail mix left over. Hélène had eaten everything which may indicate a more accurate caloric need estimation.
Relive: We don't know about you but we always look forward to view our Relive for the day. Tonight, there was a significant delay getting it and we (Daniel) felt somewhat anxious..😉
Tomorrow's forecast: Rain with headwinds 30 km/h gusting to 50!
