    1. So here’s one quick fix for iPad or iPhone you can try Miranda, although the voice quality is not quite Matt Berry standard:
      Go to Settings, then General, then Accessibility, then Speech, then switch on Speak Screen.
      If you swipe two fingers down on any page, Stephen (or Stephanie) Hawking can read it to you! Have fun.


      1. Ben ! Well done You!! – you’ve kicked the ball into the net! Hats off to you and sloppies from all of us and (especially) the Rols!

  1. Just finished reading, thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks for the great read. Am planning a 2022 ride from Quebec->Alberta and saw this ride as an opportunity to reflect, to take time away from everything , to be lonely and self-sufficient. I now understand that the trip will be made of choice moments of interaction with others, and that it is alao part if the adventure and the beauty of this type of trip.
    Thanks again 🙂


    1. Hi Daniel – my apologies for the slow reply! The blog has been on hold for a while now for obvious reasons, which is frustrating, but it’s great to have received your comments, reminding me of happy days of travel. Quebec to Alberta sounds like a great challenge to have awaiting you next year, but if you recall the Prairie section of my book, you may have to allow plenty of time for that stage heading east-west if the wind is against you!
      Thanks again for taking the trouble to get in touch, and your reflections on the experience.
      With best wishes


      1. Thanks for the response 🙂
        It’s funny because lately I’ve been going biking specifically when there is a strong wind to see how I’ll fare. Other than the adventure, the reason for my trip is a family reunion in Alberta (where I’m originally from) at a specific date. It kinda removes some of the fun as it’s no longer an open-ended trip.
        Thus, without having lived it, calculating the amount of time it’ll take to cross the Prairies will be harder. It just means that I’ll have a huge (probably 2-3 weeks) contingency so that I’m able to enjoy every minute without being stressed about missing the reunion.
        Again, thanks for the great read!
