I am a 55-year-old expat Canadian, now Australian planning to leave the West Coast the end of May. Am hoping to do much of the journey on "the great trail" so am on a mountain bike. I have a few friends from Australia and Canada joining me for parts of my ride but wondered if anyone is interested to join me/us for all or part of it. I am flexible and not obsessive about routing. Am budget conscious but too old to rough it all the time. Will do some camping, some budget accommodation and maybe some Warmshowers. At the moment am planning to finish in Nova Scotia - Clarke's Harbour. I have 3 months, I fly back to Australia August 30. Contact me if you have any interest and we will chat?? Email
