After a tasty and filling breakfast we hopped on our bikes and left the St. George B&B. Unfortunately, it turns out that I left my favourite T shirt there too.

We continued along the Elora-Cataract Trail which took us right past the Shand Dam which regulates the flow of water from Lake Belwood into the Grand River.

It was feeling hotter as the day went on and we considered swimming at this shady spot.

Our picnic lunch today was just outside of Hillsburgh. We were looking for a nice spot in the shade, with a breeze and we found that and more. There was a picnic table, a small lake and a porta-poty.

After lunch we carried on to Erin where we went into town to grocery shop. We also stopped at the Bakery there for our dessert. At the bike shop in Erin we inquired about linking from the Elora-Cataract Trail to the Caledon Trailway. We received pretty good advice, so shortly after that we found ourselves riding on the road.

We followed Winston Churchill Blvd part way down the escarpment. The road was rough, but mostly downhill and led us right to the other trail.

The final 15km were pretty tough. We were simply running out of energy. After a couple of short breaks, we found Humber Station Rd ultimately our accommodation for the night.

The place looks great and it looks like we’ll be swimming after all!
