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…

Day 32 – Blind River to Sheguiandah (Wade)

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. If the Trans-Canada wasn’t supposed to be used by cyclists (like the 400-series…
