Today we got our earliest start yet. We were on the road just after 8 o’clock and after pedaling 7km into downtown Collingwood we stopped at the grocery store to pickup our breakfast. Then we navigated our way to the start of the Georgian Trail on the edge of town.
We ate our breakfast there and did some maintenance on our bikes before setting off towards Meaford. The trail goes past Blue Mountain although clouds shrouded our view. In Thornbury we stopped for a short break and caught a glimpse of the bay.
The ride was mostly downhill coming into Meaford and we found another grocery store where we got our lunch. We ate at a bench on the main street and watched the world go by. The sun had worked it’s way out by this time and the temperature instantly got warmer.
We decided to take the most direct route to Owen Sound instead of the Tom Thomson Trail. Highway 26 was more direct, but it also had us climbing several hills on the way. This is often
the view I see when I’m climbing…
We had been planning that salad since late lastnight. Shrimp, mango salsa, peppers, avocado, cucumber and greek yogurt.
