Day 34 – What A Day (Wade)

In Owen Sound, about 185km from home, we decided to make the push home. We set the alarm for 5:00am. I went to bed at 11pm, but woke up for good at 2:30am (🙄) and Nathan decided to go to sleep at 1am. So we were both exhausted before we even started. I checked the…

Day 33 – That Was Rough (Wade)

(Insert Sean Connery comment here) We started the day (and I use the term loosely) at 4:30am. We were about 55km from the ferry at South Baymouth and needed to get there before the 9:10am. If we missed that one then the next one wouldn’t leave until 1:00pm, which was not acceptable. It was dark…

So it has become an ongoing joke about how the wind is always against us. This morning with a 20kmph wind blowing straight in our faces for the first 100km, Nate and I discussed the 3 days we know for sure the wind was assisting us. 3 days. That is about 10% of this trip.…

Day 31 – Another New Experience (Wade)

Today we left the City of Sault Ste. Marie for Blind River. What I have discovered about the roads in Northern Ontario is that they are having a secret competition to see who can maintain the worst conditions for cyclists. For real.
