9 Minor Moderate Severe Catastrophic Likely Possible Unlikely CYCLE TOURING GASPE 9 of 96 HAZARD ANALYSIS/ ERP-DAY 1: APRIL 15 TH 2011 Description of day: Leave early (6:00AM) from Pembroke for Ottawa to pick up bikes and then St Anne des Monts to Auberge Gaspesie. Hazard (objective and subjective) Probability Severity Mitigation Strategy Problem with bike pickup causing delay or serious problem X X Arrange in great detail with owner the bike pickup dates, times and expectations over and confirm. Arrange money transfer beforehand so there are no confusions. Good preparation can effectively mitigate this hazard. Problem with vehicle chosen for trip X X This is a big unknown in the overall trip plan and one of the hazards that can take a big toll, as such, we have decided to rent a vehicle to take (it s still faster and less expensive than the train) but if there are any issues then the group can simply call the company and get a replacement car: with no additional cost, and minimal time repercussions. Car accident on route to the start location Problem with packing gear the night before trip leaves X X Having a car accident can result in minor to catastrophic consequences depending on the situation. This hazard (though always possible in any situation) can be minimized by having only G licensed drivers drive (and only those over 21: stipulated by rental service). Driving especially alert and safe when on route will minimize the hazard as well. X X Packing gear will be well planned before the group ever gets to the start location and if there is a problem (small panniers, miscalculated measurements) there will always be a way to fit the items or take unnecessary items out in order to make everything fit. It may cause a time delay, but there are always small problems with packing for trips.

10 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 10 of 96 EMERGENCY RESPONSE PLAN-DAY 1 WITHIN GROUP: Trip Leader (Keri) Emergency Co-ordinator CALLING PROCESS Emergency Medical Responder (Ted) Communications Manager (Lea) in charge of calling process Emergency Services (911)or local police if applicable ( ) Jeff Jackson cell ( ) or office ( x 2704) one of the following numbers depending on incident EVACUATION OPTIONS In the event that a group member needs to trip because of an emergency the first day, the options are to Sainte Anne des Monts, the injured person will be evacuated Ambulance Service in Gaspe region (418) Poison Control Centre Quebec Hospital in St Anne Des Monts SAR Quebec be evacuated from the many. If during travel either by the car we are taking or ambulance if necessary to the nearest hospital or back home. Our home base for the trip (where we are leaving the truck) is Auberge Gaspesie (see emergency contact sheet). It is here that the member who is unable to continue will have to camp and wait (within reason) after medical care is given unless other arrangements are made for transport back home. Unless the injury is severe, the group will go on with plan while the other participant waits or arranges other transportation home. The group will always be able to be in contact with cell phones and for the first day especially which is all travel to trip site, all options are available to us in major highways and communication. CONTACTS FOR ODA CO-ORDINATOR (CALL IN ORDER FROM TOP TO BOTTOM) Local Police: Auberge Gaspesie: Trip Leader cell phone: If necessary Search and Rescue Quebec: Local hospital: Group Member Cell phones: (see first page, Emergency Contacts) Student s emergency contacts (family member): see first page (Emergency Contacts)

Directions from Auberge Gaspesie are: OTHER RELEVANT INFORMATION (see important notes at end of section)

12 Minor Moderate Severe Catastrophic Likely Possible Unlikely CYCLE TOURING GASPE 12 of 96 HAZARD ANALYSIS/ERP -DAY 2: APRIL 16 TH 2011 Description of day: Wake up and leave from Auberge Gaspise and get to a grocery store in St Anne des Monts, cycle highway 132 to Mont St Pierre. Set up camp, make dinner. Hazard (objective and subjective) Probability Severity Mitigation Strategy Closed/unavailable grocery store X X Research is being done into the closest grocery stores and when they are open/what they have available to us. This will avoid depending on a grocery store that is not there. If there is nothing available: we may have to depend on a small convenience store for our needs or our food brought for snacks. Group member hit by vehicle on highway Problem with campground (closed/no reservation/didn t make it to site/went too far) results in no camping there Poor physical ability leading to failure to reach daily goals/ exhaustion/ poor moral in group. X X This area of the trip is noted in all trip plans previously seen that it is the most dangerous for highway traffic. In order to mitigate that we will be using bike mirrors (as recommended by other cyclists having done the route) having vests, and be using paved shoulders/ bike lanes as often as possible. X X Although careful planning will be taken to insure bookings at all possible campgrounds (without a reservation fee) whenever possible, there may still be issues not previously seen. This does not have a huge consequence: it is common on cycle touring trips to have to change camp areas. Other arrangements can be made where necessary. (where problem solving comes in) X X This is a real possibility because of the elevation change in this day in particular. Although there will be no physical hazard, it can be a hazard to the accomplishment of the goal route. Mitigation strategy is to train before leaving and to take appropriate breaks.

Evacuation routes on cycle touring trips are easy to Ambulance Service in Gaspe region (418) Poison Control Centre Quebec Hospital in mont st pierre SAR Quebec evacuated from the many options arrange but there aren t many alternate options and are very dependent on the type of injury or reason for evacuation. If the injured group member cannot cycle back to home base, alternate transportation must be arranged to transport the member back to Sainte Anne des Monts if not by ambulance to the nearest hospital. That transportation may be a cab or bus back from Mont St. Pierre to Sainte Anne des Monts. If circumstances allow and the group member wants to, they can camp or get a hotel and wait at Mont St Pierre to recoup and meet the group on day 8 when they arrive in that area again to bike the final day back. Other options again include arranging train transport back to Ottawa or bus to Pembroke. If it is a critical injury and the member is evacuated to hospital, the trip will be postponed until an ok is given from ODA co-ordinators to continue. As we are in a fairly urban area, transportation is always available the problem is at what cost and how that will work with the trip plan.

15 Minor Moderate Severe Catastrophic Likely Possible Unlikely CYCLE TOURING GASPE 15 of 96 Hazard Analysis/ ERP -Day 3: April 17 th 2011 Description of day: wake up and pack up camp, cycle the day and stop at grande vallee campground for the night. Hazard (objective and subjective) Probability Severity Mitigation Strategy Group member hit by vehicle on highway Problem with campground (closed/no reservation/didn t make it to site/went too far) results in no camping there Poor physical ability leading to failure to reach daily goals/ exhaustion/ poor moral in group.

If the injured group member cannot cycle back to home base, alternate transportation must be arranged to transport the member back to Sainte Anne des Monts if not by ambulance to the nearest hospital. That transportation may be a cab or bus to Sainte Anne des Monts or Gaspe depending. See helpful group contacts section. Evacuation from this point in the route will most likely take the form of going forward to Gaspe since it is a bigger community with more option for healthcare and alternate transportation if needed. There will also be many houses and small businesses along the route that may be of use in case of no cell phone service or if we need shelter/help of any kind. CONTACTS FOR ODA CO-ORDINATOR (CALL IN ORDER FROM TOP TO BOTTOM) Local Police: Trip Leader cell phone: If necessary Search and Rescue Quebec: Local hospital: Group Member Cell phones: (see first page, Emergency Contacts) Student s emergency contacts (family member): see first page (Emergency Contacts)

This does not have a huge consequence: it is common on cycle touring trips to have to change camp areas. Other arrangements can be made where necessary. (where problem solving comes in) X X This is a real possibility because of the elevation change in this day in particular and the length of the day. This appears to be one of the longest and hardest days. Although there will be no physical hazard, it can be a hazard to the accomplishment of the goal route. The mitigation strategy here is to train before leaving and taking appropriate breaks, staying hydrated, etc.

The mitigation strategy here is to train before leaving and taking appropriate breaks, staying hydrated, etc. Split in group decision making (regarding short or long route this day) X X On this day there is a decision to be made regarding a shorter or longer day. The decision will be based on weather, motivation and moral, and time. The main way to mitigate this hazard to group dynamics is to have a clear hierarchy and decision making process before leaving.

24 Minor Moderate Severe Catastrophic Likely Possible Unlikely CYCLE TOURING GASPE 24 of 96 Hazard Analysis/ ERP Day6: April 20 th 2011 Description of day: wake up and pack up camp, cycle the day and stop near Whitehouse for the night. Hazard (objective and subjective) Probability Severity Mitigation Strategy Group member hit by vehicle on highway X X In order to mitigate that we will be using bike mirrors (as recommended by other cyclists having done the route) having vests and be using paved shoulders/ bike lanes as often as possible. Problem with finding camp area X X In this day in particular there are no specific campsites available so there is a possibility of not finding a suitable spot when we want to camp. This may result in the possibility of riding into dusk to find an area to camp (although in all Google earth research there looks to be ample open enough areas). If we do end up riding into dusk we will have appropriate reflectors and lights on bikes (half hour before dusk). Poor physical ability leading to failure to reach daily goals/ exhaustion/ poor moral in group. X X Although there will be no physical hazard, it can be a hazard to the accomplishment of the goal route. The mitigation strategy here is to train before leaving and taking appropriate breaks, staying hydrated, etc. Small no shoulders/snow conditions resulting in difficult riding X X In all research conducted we have seen that the interior roads are often more snow covered and less designed for cycle touring. Although there is much less traffic on the interior roads. In order to mitigate this hazard we have allowed an extra emergency day in case of delays and have all road safety equipment on bike.

With less traffic on this road and a greater chance of no cell phone coverage, this day and those that follow are the most remote we will be on the trip. There are no settlements or businesses along this route at all so if help is needed and there is no cell phone coverage, the main help is going to be cars travelling along the highway. Gaspe however is not far in terms of vehicle s ability to travel and so if there is an emergency there should not be a problem in evacuating the injured person.

33 Minor Moderate Severe Catastrophic Likely Possible Unlikely CYCLE TOURING GASPE 33 of 96 HAZARD ANALYSIS/ERP -DAY 9: APRIL 23 rd 2011 Description of day: Wake up and leave from Murdochville cycle highway 132 to Sainte-Anne-des-Monts to Aubergie Gaspesie for the last night. Hazard (objective and subjective) Probability Severity Mitigation Strategy Closed/unavailable grocery store X X Research is being done into the closest grocery stores and when they are open/what they have available to us. This will avoid depending on a grocery store that is not there. If there is nothing available: we may have to depend on a small convenience store for our needs or our food brought for snacks. Group member hit by vehicle on highway Smelling the barn mentality causing problems/injuries/not packing properly, etc. Poor physical ability leading to failure to reach daily goals/ exhaustion/ poor moral in group. X X This area of the trip is noted in all trip plans previously seen that it is the most dangerous for highway traffic. In order to mitigate that we will be using bike mirrors (as recommended by other cyclists having done the route) having vests, and be using paved shoulders/ bike lanes as often as possible. X X The mentality that it is the last day cycling which can lead to carelessness cannot be accepted on a trip with as many hazards as this. This is a big day just like any other and as a result this should be the best and most experienced day not the opposite. To Mitigate this we should have clear expectations in the debriefing the day before and remind each other. X X This is a real possibility because of the elevation change in this day in particular. Although there will be no physical hazard, it can be a hazard to the accomplishment of the goal route. Mitigation strategy is to train before leaving and to take appropriate breaks.

That transportation may be a cab or bus back from Monts Louis to Sainte Anne des Monts. Other options again include arranging train transport back to Ottawa or bus to Pembroke. If it is a critical injury and the member is evacuated to hospital, the trip will be postponed until an ok is given from ODA coordinators to continue. As we are in a fairly urban area, transportation is always available the problem is at what cost and how that will work with the trip plan.

36 Minor Moderate Severe Catastrophic Likely Possible Unlikely CYCLE TOURING GASPE 36 of 96 HAZARD ANALYSIS/ ERP-DAY 10: APRIL 24 th 2011 Description of day: Leave early (6:00AM) from Aubergie Gaspesie for Ottawa to drop off bikes and then to Pembroke. Hazard (objective and subjective) Probability Severity Mitigation Strategy Problem with damaged/nonaccepted bikes causing delay or extra costs X X Arrange in great detail with owner the bike drop-off dates, times and expectations over and confirm. Arrange money transfer beforehand so there are no confusions. Good preparation can effectively mitigate this hazard. Problem with vehicle chosen for trip X X This is a big unknown in the overall trip plan and one of the hazards that can take a big toll, as such, we have decided to rent a vehicle to take (it s still faster and less expensive than the train) but if there are any issues then the group can simply call the company and get a replacement car: with no additional cost, and minimal time repercussions. Car accident on route to the start location X X Having a car accident can result in minor to catastrophic consequences depending on the situation. This hazard (though always possible in any situation) can be minimized by having only G licensed drivers drive (and only those over 21: stipulated by rental service). Driving especially alert and safe when on route will minimize the hazard as well.

40 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 40 of 96 HAZARDS COMMON TO ALL CYCLE TOURING (Theoretically included on each day s hazard assessment sheet) Road Rash/Minor Injuries Biking over rolling concrete hills can have its effects on the body. Road rash usually involves contact with the ground from falling off bicycle. Speed has a large impact on how severe road rash is as well as the amount of minor injuries that come along with this sport. Signs: Individual on ground, blood, swelling, soreness, limited movement Management: For treating road rash and minor injuries, first aid should be used. Use of bandages, gauze, and tape to stop bleeding and protect wound. Each individual on trip should carry personal FA kit and be trained in first aid. Forearm/Wrist Mobility Cramps and strains in lower as well as upper arms can be a annoying, painful and have a bad impact on trip. After having your arms and hands clenched to handlebars can have a strain on muscles of wrists and forearms. Signs: Soreness, poor mobility, annoyance Management: Massaging muscles can improve mobility however the implementation of RICE technique can be used if strain is serious. Rest- Get arms off bike and relax muscles as soon as possible Ice- Apply ice to painful area to reduce swelling (find store with ice) Compression- Apply pressure or put a compression bandage on forearms and wrist. Elevation- Hold arm in the air to ensure proper circulation, faster healing. Numb Bum Bike seats are not the most comfortable places to sit and after being on the same one for over a week straight, group member s bottoms will become sore and tender. This uncomfortable factor can be detrimental to trip, and cause a client to be miserable. Signs: Shifting in seat, complaining, painful rear, looking for breaks Management: Space out time along trip to take a break and walk of any tenderness in muscles. Break time as suitable for relief of pain/annoyance. Apply cream (A535) to area of annoyance if necessary. Adjust seat of bike to fit size and weight of individual. Car Accident Our primary route is down highways and public roads, and therefore there is always the possibility of being struck by a vehicle. The 132 route being taken is down a busy road that is being used by thousands of people per day. The possibilities are low however this is a very serious hazard that needs to be stressed. Signs: Car noises, cyclist on ground, bleeding, pain, change in mood/atmosphere

41 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 41 of 96 Management: Follow highway safety act. Use all appropriate gear for area of trip, and wear bright reflective clothing. Avoid areas of road that are full of traffic, and don t get too comfortable with cars/traffic. If an incident does occur involving an individual and a car alert emergency numbers and treat for severity of injuries. First aid needs to be a skill that all clients have or at least some of them. Stay calm and use sense to control accident until authorities/ambulance arrives. Dehydration Probably the most prevalent hazard on trips and leads to other injuries, having a very negative impact on tours. Dehydration causes the body to shut down, cramping and not responding as fast as usual. The effects of dehydration may not cause a physical injury however it works a catalyst for other hazards. Signs: Headaches, dry lips, irritable, confused or disoriented Management: In order to stay hydrated while physically exercising constantly, a client and group member must consume at least 8 litres a day. Keep a camel pack or extra water bottle handy. Fill up bottles as much as possible (each rest stop/campsites). Drink electrolytes (Gatorade) to keep energy level up. In order to manage a dehydrated individual, take a rest and consume water until they feel re-energized. (Morton, 2010) Hypo/hyperthermia A real possibility on this trip in particular: with cold temperatures and possible bad weather it is very possible for a member to fall victim to the first stages of (most likely) hypothermia. Proper packing and a close watch for signs is the best way to fight this hazard. Hypothermia can cause a loss of mobility and a serious drop in temperature of the core and can cause death if not treated. Signs: shivering, discoloration of extremities and lips. Poor cap refill, slurring of speech, loss of fine mobility, signs of shock. Management: careful planning and choice of layers for the day to come will allow for a day free of hypothermia, if necessary the group may have to stop the day s travels early in order to accommodate the hypothermic individual. Treat with dry clothes and a warm sheltered area. Hot drinks and setting up camp is the best way to reverse the first stages of hypothermia. The condition worsens quickly and having more than a few members in this state is a recipe for disaster: if in doubt, stop Camping Accidents (stoves, fires, fall/slip/trips) Most often occurrence of injury on all trips is in and around camp. Any amount of burns, sprains, breaks, and soft tissue wounds can happen in camp. Signs: obvious upon incident Management: depends on specific injury. Refer to WFR guide book and be sure to be prepared for anything: a well stocked first aid kit is necessary to manage some of these injuries.

42 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 42 of 96 CELL PHONE POLICY All group members are to bring their personal cell-phones on trip in order to communicate effectively. The trip Leader is designated to make the check in times on her personal cell phone as she has a Canada wide calling plan. Not all group members will have to make calls in order to avoid incurring additional costs however all members will have their cell phones turned on between 7pm-9pm in order to be available for emergency calls. The trip leader will always have her phone turned on and with her from the hours 7am to 9pm in order to be available as often as possible. Although we do not know for sure what the cell coverage is the research we have done through our cell service providers shows full coverage in the area. The group plans on charging cell phones on the way at campgrounds and restaurants/grocery stores along the way. Battery life will be conserved by turning the phones off during the night. HEALTH INSURANCE POLICY Group Health insurance although a concern is not bought separately from the coverage OHIP and other providers already provide. This is because of OHIP policy stating: If you are an insured resident of Ontario and you are outside the province temporarily you can use your Ontario health card to obtain insured physician and hospital services. In most cases, the hospital or physician that you visit while outside Ontario will bill the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care directly. If you are an insured resident and you are hospitalized in another province or territory while temporarily absent from Ontario, you are eligible for Ontario health insurance coverage for the duration of your hospitalization up to a maximum of 12 months. If you require hospitalization beyond the 12 month maximum, the province or territory where you are hospitalized will provide you with coverage from the 1st day of the 13th month. If you have to pay for insured services that you receive in another part of Canada, such as physician services, you may be eligible for reimbursement from the ministry. (retrieved from:

43 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 43 of 96 PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT A big part of our group s mitigation strategy for the biggest hazard (which is drivers and other road traffic) is prevention through proper personal protective equipment (PPE). See chart below: PPE item Use Highly Reflective Vests Worn all the time when riding on roads Lights on front and back of bike On bike at all times. Turned on until half an hour after sunrise and half an hour before dusk as well as in low light conditions. Bell on bike On bike at all times, used when passing others Hand signal knowledge and use Used properly at all intersections studied before leaving. Watch It is our policy that all group members bring a watch and use it for group meeting times and tracking speed/efficiency so we all are on the same page Whistle Used in the event that we separate on the road too far for voice contact. 1 blast =look 2 blasts=stop 3 blasts=emergency: stop and gather Bike Mirrors It is our policy for this trip (as recommended in research done) that each bike is equipped with a mirror to see traffic coming and get off road if necessary. Thermal clothing/layers Being a trip that makes light packing necessary we have decided to only bring 3 changes of clothes. Therefore we will not bring any cotton and will layer according to the weather bringing all thermal wear necessary and avoiding delays/injuries due to temperature/hypothermia. Cycle Computer One will be brought on trip to measure and ensure that distances are met and on timed schedule and to avoid riding at night A big part of our personal mitigation strategy as a group is to have an average riding speed and try to stick to that average all trip. Therefore the first day of riding (day 2) is an important day regarding creating averages for how fast we travel as a group. The group should try to ride at a sustainable pace that day to set the precedence for what we can base travel times off of.

44 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 44 of 96 PHONE CHECK IN SYSTEM As stipulated by Algonquin College, There are four mandatory phone check-ins. 1: when we leave Pembroke. 2: when we start the trip. 3: when we arrive back from our trip. 4: when we arrive back in Pembroke. In addition to this, the group is required to call if and when there is any variation in the original route/trip plan and if and when someone is injured or has to be evacuated as well as in the event that we split up. The check in system does not necessitate voice contact but must contain the information outlined on the following sheet in approximately the same order. See below for an outline (based on last year s requirements).

46 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 46 of 96 ROUTE CARD AND EXPLANATION The route card shows only approximate locations of the camp. The camp for the evening may vary by a 20km radius from the exact waypoint. However, the group will go no further than the 20km radius from that point, without notifying the proper chain of command. For the day in Riviere au renard/gaspe, the alternate route may be chosen if the weather is difficult or the group tired. View map for more details. Also, due to seasonal constraints and distance limits, camping is dynamic on this trip, and campgrounds may or may not be used. Camping on Crown land may be used, or private land with granted permission. Route Card Worksheet, also factors in a 1hour lunch and two half an hour breaks per day. The DISTANCE + ELEVATION, is calculated on a 50m of elevation =.1km added to travel km. This mean that if the distance is 5 km and the elevation gain is 100m than the actual distance is 5.2km.

51 Temperature in degrees Celcius CYCLE TOURING GASPE 51 of 96 SEASONS/CONDITIONS TO CONSIDER The group can face a variety of weather conditions and terrain. According to elevation profiles for the route, obtained by the Gaspe Tourism Association, the group will be climbing roughly 3800 metres of elevation. Mt. Rainier, stands at 4394m. The group will have challenging days every day, especially once wind speed is considered and the weight of the gear. The group is fortunate enough that food can be bought daily in towns, cutting down on weight. The roads are well paved creating less friction. Apart from the ascending, the group is travelling in the off season, this is beneficial as there will be a decrease in motor traffic. The season being travelled in presents a mix of conditions from snow, to rain. Check below for some weather data. Weather Below are the historical averages for the area in which we will be travelling from the past 5 years 20 Historical Temperature Averages for April 15th-25th Maximum Temp Minimum Temp AVG. Temp

52 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 52 of 96 Evidently, the average max temperature is 18 degrees Celsius and the minimum is -7. The group can expect an average temperature is 2.3 degrees Celsius. Source = In addition, the average amount of precipitation for the month of April is 81mm. To put this in relation, Pembroke in the month of April receives 41mm of rain. However, Pembroke has on average 3 days more of precipitation. This means that group will likely experience precipitation 4-5 days of the trip, varying in severity.

53 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 53 of 96 Other than precipitation, and temperature a major concern for cyclists would be the wind. The prevailing wind in this are tends to come in the direction of South West. Meaning on the way to Gaspe, the group be cycling into a head wind, and on the way home the group would have a tail wind. The chart above displays wind direction frequency. In addition, to frequency the average wind speed for the area is 33.3 KM/H. What this information means to the group? Using the bike calculator from noping.net, we calculated our Average speed to be 13.6 km/h. Remember this is an average and it may vary depending on moral, weather or terrain. Ultimately, the group will have to ride an average of 7 hours a day to complete their trip on time.

54 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 54 of 96 ITINERARY Our group will be picking up the rental vehicle the day before the itinerary actually begins. Our test ride in march ensures that all of our systems will be working in unison the day of the expedition. On route, the group will have opportunities to explore the surrounding towns and scenery at night time. Special care must be taken when doing. Upon arriving at SAINTE ANNE DU MONTS our group will be staying in a hostel that offers a base to prepare the bicycles and food for the first leg of the trip. Throughout any time on the trip the group may choose to stay at a hotel or hostel. It will be at their expense and must not deviate from the route. When returning home, the bikes will be dropped off in Ottawa, and at that time any additional costs for damages may be paid for. For detailed information on bike shops on route, please see emergency response plan.

60 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 60 of 96 EXPECTED DIFFICULTY SPOTS The first difficult spot will be our first day, as we unsure of our speed, ability and definitive terrain. Second difficult spot will be Day 4 as it is the most physically demanding due to the elevation and the distance travelled. Third difficult spot will be Day 6 as the elevation in relation to distance travelled is high. This will be a tough day. ALTERNATE ROUTES/CAMP ORIGINAL PLAN Due to the nature of cycling touring, our group as the luxury of making any places a camp. Alternate camps can be on government land, or private land with permission of the owner. The group is also carrying a credit card, so private accommodations - such as motels/hotels/inns- are readily accessible if the circumstance calls for it. The route we are travelling is the only access road in the area until the town of Gaspe. As such, if the group needs to take an alternate route it will be to travel back along the original route. In some area s there are side roads, however, side roads generally lead back to the main road HWY 132 which is the original route. Once the group reaches Riviere-au-Renard, there will be an alternate route that differs from travelling back. This is identified on our map. This route will take off roughly 40km and provide a quicker means of accessing the major town of GASPE. The town of GASPE is the halfway point of the trip, in that, once passed this location the group s alternate route will be to push forward. Before MURDOCHVILLE, the group will travel back to GASPE and arrange transportation to the put-in. After MURDOCHVILLE, the group will go forward to L ANSE PLEUREUSE. After L ANSE PLEUREUSE, the groups route will always be to go towards SAINTE-ANNE-DES-MONTS.

84 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 84 of 96 BRIEF RESUME JULIE TAYLOR My name is Julie Taylor and I am from the small town of Parry Sound, Ontario. I am 19 years old and my previous work within the outdoor adventure industry includes guiding white water canoeing and sea kayaking trips for Black Feather this past summer. This coming summer I plan on working at a camp or a rafting company somewhere within Canada. After graduating at Algonquin College I plan on taking a year off to work within the industry and travel, taking a month to backpack in Africa, then attend Thompson Rivers University the following year. On the Gaspe Trip I am looking forward to the challenge of the route and learning how overnight cycling trips work; how to pack gear, proper clothing, what it is like to have the extra weight on your bike, etc. I am curious as to how much snow and or rain there will be during this cycling trip. Weather and wind could add an extra challenge throughout the trip. As for training, I have been going to the gym and cycling and running, with a circuit of weights on top of that. I have worked in a packing center and have gone on numerous trips, allowing me to have a good sense of how to pack food, taking up a minimal amount of space but still providing delicious meals. I love physical challenges, which are exactly what this trip is bringing to the table. I have never been on a cycling trip or cycled more than 40 kilometers in a day, nor have a biked in temperatures below zero which could both be my biggest challenge for the trip.

85 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 85 of 96 TED MORTON My name is Ted Morton, 23 years old and from Mississauga, Ontario. I have worked in Whistler, Tree Planted and been a sea kayak guide in Georgian Bay. Upon graduating I would like to work in the industry doing risk management consultation On the Gaspe Trip 2011 I am looking forward to the planning and logistics, as well as the difficulty of the route and the rough weather. I am nervous about meeting the deadlines and the difficulty of the trip. Training for the trip; I am an avid cyclist, so cycling is something I am always doing, in addition I have started to work on my anaerobic, and aerobic condition, by interval training while running. And squats, lots of squats. Identifying these strengths and weaknesses is the essential form of mitigation. Additionally, notifying the group members of these factors can help them identify and help in a positive manor. Strengths: I bring to the trip experience; I am the only one in the group has ever done a cycle touring trip, in addition to the only cyclist in the group. I also bring a sense of urgency in the planning stages as well as organization. I am familiar with meeting tight deadlines and scheduling accordingly. As such I am very aggressive when it comes to setting dates and being extremely thorough in all of our endeavors. Weaknesses: I am a perfectionist, this requires me to want to be involved in everything; I tend to want to do everything, so other members may feel that i am overbearing or disrespectful. Physically, my weakness would be that I tend to push others and myself. This can cause fatigue and lead to poor judgment

86 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 86 of 96 KERI LEWIS Keri Lewis: 19 year old outdoor adventure student originally from Guelph, ON. Work experience in the industry includes a summer spent working as a day guide for Killarney Mountain Lodge doing canoeing, sea kayaking, and hiking trips. Keri plans on continuing work experience in the industry this summer working for summer camps in Ontario. Keri also plans on continuing her education after Algonquin College with Thompson Rivers University and acquiring the bachelor of tourism degree. This trip will bring some challenges and trials for Keri because of the fact that she has little cycle touring experience but she is looking forward to learning lots about a new adventure activity that has limitless boundaries. The scenery and experience will be second to none: even planning this trip has great learning possibilities. The main thing that she is not looking forward to about the trip is the cold temperatures and weather problems that come along with having to book this trip in April. Some roads are closed because of the time of year and snow: although it will be a good experience to cycle tour with these hardships; it probably will make the trip less enjoyable. Keri is continuing her regular exercise regimen in preparation for the trip as well as running in preparation for another trip in the chic choc region (this time for backcountry ski touring). This trip and further cardio exercise training after will allow for a more efficient body system to complete the trip with. There will also be a training/test day with the whole group to practice cycle touring and see what our possible km per day can be. Keri has tripping skills and practice tripping and packing on many occasions. All of these skills will translate to a great and relatively easy time with the logistics of cycle touring. Organizational skills and general decision-making will allow for great additions to the strengths of the team. The weakness that Keri is bringing in respect to this trip is the fact that she has very limited cycle touring experience. She has recently bought a bike and knows basic bike repair knowledge and with proper cardio endurance training, she feels she can mitigate these weaknesses.

87 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 87 of 96 GUISEPPE CRISCI My real full name is Guiseppe Ranoldo Crisci. Most of my friends call me Jesse, I am from the once small town of Milton, Ontario, where I grew up on a chicken, rabbit, apples and pear farm. My family is 100% Italian and is very strong on Italian tradition. This past summer I had the opportunity to work as a canoe tripper at Camp Manitou where I gained some experience leading flat water canoe trips. My plans for the year after I am done this program is to travel out west and work as a ski/snowboard instructor. After a year of travel I plan on attending the BTM course at TRU. I am really looking forward to the scenery that our destination has to offer. I really am excited to finish planning and execute this cycle touring trip. One thing I am not looking forward to is finishing the trip because that means we are one step closer to being done here at Algonquin college. I have not yet been doing any training but I plan on hitting the bike at the gym for at least 2 to 3 hours a week. Some strengths bring to this expedition is my sense of humor and ability to motivate people to do things. With a long bike ride and many hills to climb, there needs to be high moral within the group and lots of motivation to get through the long biking days. One weakness I will have is I find it very hard to wake up on early mornings. Especially when you have been biking all day the day before. These weaknesses will be overcome through motivation and good group and time management.

88 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 88 of 96 LEA DIRSTEIN Laurelea Dirstein, age 21, from Bracebridge, Ontario. Current work experience in relation to the outdoor industry involves rope course instructor; setting up belay systems, guiding on high ropes, setting up safety systems and implementing rescue techniques with ropes. After school Laurelea plans to travel to Sweden to work within the outdoor industry and then continue on her travels to Australia in the late fall. Laurelea is looking forward to experiencing a cycle touring trip for her first time. The challenges that are presented within the trip enable growth and a new learning experience within the field. On the trip Laurelea is not looking forward to the adverse weather conditions that may present themselves as well as seeing how in shape she really is. To train for this expedition, Laurelea has taken upon herself to go out jogging at least three times a week and also goes to the local pool to swim laps. A strength, which is brought by Laurelea to the expedition, is the ability to motivate others in the group. The days will be long and the weather may be bad but the ability to keep a smile on is one of her strengths. Laurelea also brings forth experience in the cooking and meal planning aspect of the trip. A weakness, which presents itself on this expedition, is her fitness level. Since never doing a cycle tour before or never biking a large distance it is hard for her to depict how and at what level is appropriate for to train to. This weakness is trying to be subsided by doing cardio workouts and consistently trying to be active while focusing on leg power.

92 CYCLE TOURING GASPE 92 of 96 LOCATIONS GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION/ROUTE NAME: The geographic location which our tour will start is in Pembroke, Ontario. The group will be meeting at 667 Front Street; The Trip Leaders place of residence. At which time they will load their vehicle to the Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec. The driving route will be along HWY 17 and 417 in Ontario, then along HWY 40 to Montreal. After Montreal the group will travel via HWY 132 aka THE NAVIGATORS ROUTE the town of Sainte Anne Du Monts. The Navigators Route is a scenic highway the travels around the Gaspe Peninsula, and is the backdrop and main route for this group s expedition. Upon arrival in Sainte Anne Des Mont, the group will park their car at the Auberge Gaspesie, here they will prepare their equipment and depart. The route travelled covers three distinct geographic locations; the first portion of the trip is known as Upper Gaspe, the second area as Land s End, and the group will briefly travel through the Bay of Chaleur region. Vélo Quebec has created a route called the La Route Verte, a portion of La Route Verte, will be ridden towards the lands end section.
