Note, I realized my odometer setting was
off by 2% upon verifying the calibration
in Manitoba (for every 1000m I cycled my odometer recorded 980m).
To get more accurate values, all distances should be multiplied by 1.02.

The table above gives a rough idea of my route. There are instances where I
took side roads instead of the main highway, in which case
my route differs from that indicated by Google maps.
This is especially true in urban areas.
My route involved a series of smaller roads parallel to
the highway throughout most of New Brunswick and P.E.I.
You can see my exact route on this map
(does not work on all browsers).
There are multiple reasons for which I may not get far on this bike trip:
 I have a tendency to make overlyambitious trip plans.
 Previous to this trip, the longest distance I had cycled
was 170 km over two days.
 I am likely to miss Andrea after a day or two alone on the road.
 My back, knees, and IT bands have caused me problems in the past.
Eight weeks of cycling might not improve things.
 I'm riding a mountain bike instead of a road, touring, or hybrid bike.
 There are many mosquitoes in Canada.
 Two months is a long time.
 Canada is a big country.
