Yeah, I found that out on a previous trip too. Canadian French is not necessarilly France French, and parking there is called "parking"!
Also a shopping area is called "shopping" and not "centre d' achats" and the stop signs say "stop" not "arret"...proof I guess that Quebec is more French then France!

Great ride report. Love the pics and video.

That one wasn't too bad actually. Sometimes the GoPro makes it look steep like that but I find it usually flattens things out *shrugs

I was surprised they spell "Stop" everywhere else. Now check out the Stop signs where I grew up:



When I lived in Québec, they even changed the spelling of my birth name on official documents It's all good though, had a great time there as well

Next trip starts in 1 week
