Fenelon Falls to Lindsay: 27km

Wednesday, October 16. 2013.
Rained overnight. Sun and cloud with afternoon showers. 19C.

The rain had stopped by the time we got up and it was already quite warm outside. We prepared our porridge and coffee with the aid of a microwave and were ready to go by 10am. We rode back to the main street to look at a few shops and the falls.

With a little help from the ladies in the Beerstore we found the trail our of town. It started out alright but soon became soft and bumpy. A wet, rocky washboard and there was a strong head wind. Our arms got tired before our legs did from holding on so tightly. Before we switched back to the highway we took a few pictures.

Looks easy right?

Having pedaled to Lindsay before we had a pretty good idea of where we were going. There was a dark cloud following us and rain seemed imminent. We headed to the grocery store downtown and sure enough the rain followed.

After purchasing our lunch we set up shop in the mall for a picnic.

After an hour, the rain let up enough to go outside again. Wandering around downtown led us to the Chamber of Commerce And the woman working there recommended a place to stay that wasn’t even on our list. After checking in and relaxing for a bit it was time for supper. Burger and fries were in order and we had fun eating at Captain Georges again. A nice walk back helped settle our dinner and into bed for journal writing and baseball.

With our feet up.

Heading for Ajax tomorrow and with an early start we should be able to do it…

  1. Thanks for the pics and commentary. I always like to see where you are cycling. I see this was a shorter trip this time. Hope you didn’t get too soaked on your last day, as it’s supposed to be 90 % chance of rain today.
