July 11: Green Valley to Montreal (~128km)

Bikely map Having stayed up kinda late the night before, we rose a little late. our host then made us a nice big breakfast including sausages cooked in beer, and eggs with fresh spinach from his garden. Follow that up with more pleasant chatter and, needless to say, we more than a little late getting […]

July 10: Ottawa to Green Valley (~131km)

Bikely map The hot humid weather having broken while I was in Ottawa, I was blessed with moderate weather and a good brisk tailwind. Consequently, I was in no hurry to leave the good company of my family, and didn’t hit the road until around noon.

July 8: Arnprior to Ottawa (~72km)

Bikely map I woke up to a hot, humid morning which held the promise of an even hotter, more uncomfortable day. When breaking camp I folded my fly in a place that caught the eye of a few rec centre staff who were out on their coffee break. One of the asked what I was […]

July 7: Deep River to Arnprior (~136km)

Bikely map The email from my thesis advisor on things to see/do in Deep River having included a visit to his mother at his childhood home, I stopped by after being treated to breakfast by one of my friends I’d been visiting (the other having had to go to work in the morning). It was […]

July 6: Gibson Lake Rest Area to Deep River (~62km)

Bikely map It being a short ride, and there being bugs to deal with in the morning, I got going at around 10:30 in the morning. The ride was largely uneventful, and continued with similar terrain and weather to the day before.

July 5: North Bay to Gibson Lake rest area (~120km)

Bikely map After rising at around 9am, being fed a good breakfast, checking the outdoors store downstairs for propane (and getting referred to Wal-Mart), and then stopping by the public library to hop on the internet for about an hour and check my email, I was finally properly on the road at around noon.

July 4: between Stinson and Callum to North Bay (~100km)

Bikely map I got up at around 9am, and the woman living across the street (not the highway; the restaurant was on a corner) from the restaurant behind which I had camped saw me when I was breaking camp. She came over and invited me to have some breakfast at her house when I was […]

July 3: Webbwood to between Stinson and Callum (~112km)

Bikely map My host in Webbwood fed me a good breakfast, gave me some good tips on alternate routes to the Trans-Canada for pretty much the entire run to Sudbury (and even a little past it) and I was able to get on my way by about 9am. My goal for the next little chunk […]

July 2: Algoma Mills to Webbwood (~81km)

Bikely map Having been told yesterday that my host in Webbwood would be heading into town around lunch (but home otherwise), I took my time getting going so that I could be quite confident that he’d be home by the time I arrived. Consequently, I didn’t hit the road until around 11:15am.

July 1: Sault Ste. Marie to Algoma Mills (~158km)

Bikely map After spending a rest day at VĂ©lorution‘s free bicycle campground, and meeting a bunch of local cyclists in the store (and catching up with Andre, the owner, who I’d been involved in some provincial cycling advocacy with), I headed out, aiming to make it a little more than halfway to Webbwood (where lives […]
