First cycling day started out with a perfect breakfast at the Colby House B&B in Sydney. Yes, sounds weird, but I have never eaten rhubarb muffins before but they tasted like charm. So, after having fresh fruits, ham and eggs, Juli and I started off to Framework Cycle around 9:30 to get my bike for the tour.

Think they were really laughing at those German strangers that wanted to do the Cabot Trail without any real preparation. Best thing was their comment about me having at least the right bike now, but Juli "being dead" with her bike. That's a start ;-).

After putting both bikes on back of Juli's famous Pontiac, we drove back to Baddeck and arrived at the Visitors Information Centre around lunch time. Nice thing was that they have parking space on the back as well as public washrooms. So we changed clothes and finally started...
