More Ontario – Cycle Across Canada

I guess Ontario being the widest Province I will cross, it will get more photos! It seems that the large low pressure extending over the north gave very unsettled weather to eastern Ontario, and the centre of this low moved east about the same speed as me! I am getting quite accustomed to being wet, and putting on wet clothes in the morning – it has been too humid to get them dry overnight in my tent! Here are some pictures:


Mom and not so small baby moose! Steve took this one with his good camera!


These are 7 of the 8 riders that all came together our last night in Manitoba to camp near Rennie

While on the ferry to Prince Rupert, a young lady crew member spoke to me about her mother who likes cycling, and said she was planning a cross Canada ride this year. I met up again with Josef in Ignace and he arrived with Lauren who turned out to be that young lady’s Mom! What a coincidence.

Ontario really does go on forever!


This is me supporting our sponsor in my wet weather gear!


One of several hills in Horseshoe Valley west of Orillia. I didn’t need rain to get me soaked riding up his hill – the perspiration drenched me head to toe! It was very humid.

I am receiving great support from Volkswagon Dealers en route who have been very generous in their support to the Lung Association.
