February 8, 2014

A not-so-brief catch up on two months of travel.


The water is the least I have to worry about…

Sauble Falls to Walkerton. DAY: 89.47km. ODO: 3,648km. AVS: 20.5km/h. MXS: 58.0km/h. ATM: 4:21:05. As I was about to depart Sauble Falls (at my usual early hour of 11:45am), I met three local cyclists out riding the peninsula, Colleen, Dave, and the Other Dave. After a brief chat, Colleen and Dave invited me to camp…

Southern Ontario

South Baymouth to Sauble Falls. DAY: 93.63km. ODO: 3,559km. AVS: 21.9km/h. MXS: 48.0km/h. ATM: 4:15:52. The ferry to the mainland, the MV Chi-Cheemaun, leaves South Baymouth at 11:10 and 15:50 every day, and I planned to catch the first one. I had breakfast and said goodbye to Noel (he was taking the afternoon ferry). It’s…

Caucasian Givers?

Espinola to South Baymouth. DAY: 117.81km. ODO: 3,465km. AVS: 21.7km/h. MXS: 53.5km/h. ATM: 5:25:34. There was no alarm clock in my room, and I suppose I was tired for only having had an intermittent sleep on the train the night before, for I slept like a rock, right until 9:00. After doing a much needed…

Take it Easy – Take the Train

June 17, 2005

Winnipeg to Sudbury (Pt. 2), and Sudbury to Espinola. DAY: 108.13km. ODO: 3,347km. AVS: 23.4km/h. MXS: 57.5km/h. ATM: 4:36:31. This train is clearly a union shop. I haven’t seen such a slothful lot of company representatives since the post office in the 70’s. The only exception is a young woman who is clearly new to…

The Great Leap Forward

June 16, 2005

Winnipeg to Sudbury (Pt. 1). DAY: 0.00km. ODO: 3,239km. AVS: 0.00km/h. MXS: 0.00km/h. ATM: 0:00:00. Although the weather seems to be improving, I have decided to cheat and take the train the 1,500km or so to Sudbury, as I have heard nothing but negativity about the Trans-Canada highway above Lake Superior, and I’m not feeling…
