Dan Duclos and his wife Louise, originally from Compton, brought retirement projects to a whole new level when they set off on a three-month cycling trip from Astoria, Oregon on June 5. They arrived in Sherbrooke on Tuesday evening, greeted by family.
According to Dan, the couple’s original plan was to bike across Europe, but the pandemic prevented that from happening, so they decided to bike across North America instead.
While they were mainly in search of adventure, a challenge and discovering new things, Dan said there was also an environmental angle to their trip.
