Dryden to Ignace
Finally a night with no rain! Decided this morning would be a late start as it was a beautiful summer morning and I didn’t want to rush. Typical breakfast this morning, oatmeal with fruit, cup of tea and a honey/peanut butter bagel. On the road at 1040am. While taking a break at a general store ...

Kenora to Dryden
Left my campsite in Kenora at 930am. Doesn’t seem to matter how I organize packing up it usually takes me 2hrs including making breakfast. The morning was overcast but warm and the winds were in my face for the day. Today was a great day of cycling, really enjoyed the up and down rolling hills ...

West Hawk Lake to Kenora 3

West Hawk Lake to Kenora
Had a great evening last night that included fishing the shoreline (no luck) while Jesus contemplated life… The white tailed deer are accustomed to people at our campsite as you can see. We were entertained by two deer for about an hour, both looking for food, which they enjoyed some of our trail mix. Your ...

Whitemouth to West Lake 2

Whitemouth to West Lake
So turns out the grad party wasn’t, it was a group of camp counsellors for a bible canoe camp. They did have a couple Carling beers for a kindred old soul. About 730pm Jesus arrived riding his bike across Canada…praise The Lord. We sat around the campfire while he played guitar, as Scott is a ...

Eriksdale to Arborg 3

Eriksdale to Arborg
I sat in the restaurant this morning around 830am, having breakfast, chatting with the local farmers/ranchers as I waited out the thunderstorms. They haven’t seen rain for most of the spring so they were all smiles at the thought of a few day soaking. In the big picture I was happy for them, but they ...

The Narrows to Eriksdale
The rains came down hard while I enjoyed dinner and a couple Keith’s at the Narrows Resort. Thought my tent might have been swept away into the lake it was coming down so hard, luckily everything was dry when I returned to camp. Some of the staff offered their couch for the evening if I ...

Rainbow Beach to Lake Manitoba Narrows
I woke at 630am to the sounds of rain hitting my tent, which surprised me as it wasn’t forecasted to rain in the morning…kept me from leaving until 1130am. I can deal with getting soaked on my ride but have no interest in starting in the rain. Mostly because packing up in the morning takes ...
