Alliston to Port Perry 3

Alliston to Port Perry
What a perfect day for cycling. Morning started off cool at 830am as I cycled through the lessor used county roads near Alliston. Passed thru Tottenham, Schomberg, Kettleby, then on to Aurora. Passed over Hwy 400, forgot how busy the 400 series hwys are. Biked a short distance on Yonge street and forced myself to ...

Owen Sound to Alliston 1

Owen Sound to Alliston
Left the Sunny Acres Campground just before 11am knowing I only had 110km to do with a tailwind virtually the entire way. The owners of the campground were great, just took over the camp this past year. On Friday and Saturday nights the seasonal campers get together at the Rec Hall and host a concert ...

Tobermory to Owen Sound 1

Tobermory to Owen Sound
Finished up my day off yesterday with some bike repairs. Betty broke another back spoke, thinking the flat spokes I have aren’t the best for long trips? She also had a loose back wheel hub. Had a great day with my parents who made the trip from Ridgetown to spend the day with me. We ...

Whitefish Falls to Tobermory
Sorry for the late blog…hit the road at 830am with lots of time to make the 550pm ferry from South Baymouth to Tobermory. It was already HOT! It is expected to feel like 45 degrees. Our first stop was Little Current, unfortunately we weren’t able to see the swinging bridge make way for the boats ...

Blind River to Whitefish Falls
Riding with Dave again today we headed off about 830am and met Scott (aka Jesus) and Walter (from Montreal) just past Blind River. We had a convoy travelling down hwy 17, with little shoulder most of the way it seemed safer in the group? Scott, Walter, Dave and I just north of Espanola, about 100km ...

I wish I could tell you I had a busy day yesterday in the Soo, but honestly not a lot to do! Met the owner of Velorution Cycle in the morning (Andre). Staying at Velorution was the highlight. Met several cycle tourists in the two nights there…Jesus showed up, the Wye family caught up as ...

Pancake Bay to Sault Ste Marie 3

Pancake Bay to Sault Ste Marie
Your browser does not support the video tag I was up a little earlier today, quick walk on the beach, breakfast and on the road by 830am. Today held light at the end of the tunnel, something about finally making it to the Soo was exciting. A little over half way across Canada but more ...

Agawa Bay to Pancake Bay 1

Agawa Bay to Pancake Bay
Tough to leave Agawa Bay this morning, in fact didn’t until noon! The ride today wasn’t quite as epic as yesterday but the views of Superior don’t get old. Three significant climbs today and a full headwind made the day physically challenging, mentally I knew I only had 65km so that wasn’t too demanding. Another ...

Wawa to Agawa Bay 3

Wawa to Agawa Bay
David and I headed out on the road around 10am with the first stop being Wawa to pick up groceries as I was empty and there is nothing for the next 120km. We entered Lake Superior Park which is the 4th largest park in Ontario and has 83km of hwy run thru it. Today was ...
