Yesterday when we checked into the Motel Levis in Levis, Quebec a bicycle touring couple from Delaware checked in after us. We quickly shared our stories. Chip and Nancy were here to start another one week tour of this area. They have bicycle toured here several other times along with other parts of the world. Nancy invited us to share dinner with them so they drove us to a microbrewery down on the waterfront of the St. Lawrence River. What a nice evening enjoying the local brews and food along with new friends.
This morning we gave them a sendoff then Chip drove us to the Quebec ferry for our ride to Old Quebec. We had a nice day exploring by foot all the history of this area. Thanks to all our friends that recommended we take a day off here to see Quebec.
When we returned by taxi to our motel room there was a letter from the Motel Levis saying that we were their guests for the night and that they refunded tonight’s fee. What a nice surprise! This motel is a “Bienvenue Cyclistes” place where cyclists are very welcomed and catered to. There is a shed in the back where bikes are locked up and tools available. They are also storing Chip and Nancy’s car while they are on their bike tour.What a nice treat! Thank you Jean-Yves.
