So we’ve left the land of Alex Trebyk, and returned to the land of Mickey D’s. The last 2 days we have scooted across the plain of Ontario, north of Lake Erie. More rolling hills, more sunny days,more tail winds, though today we encountered some VERY STEEP, but short, climbs. Yesterday’s ride took us to Brantford, Ontario, boyhood home of “The Great One”, Wayne Gretzky. In fact our hotel, which was just off of Wayne Gretzky Drive, had a little “shrine” to him, with photos and other paraphernalia in a display, including a great photo of him as a small kid, probably about 10, with Gordie Howe. On the way to Brantford we stopped at a charming fruit stand, House’s, and bought lots of stuff, which the van carted backed to the hotel for us-GREAT Blueberries. Today’s ride took us back to the USA, we are spending the night in Niagara Falls, and tomorrow is a rest day, our last. It was interesting getting in line with the cars coming across the Rainbow Bridge to go through customs. Didn’t have nearly as nice a customs agent as we did going into Canada, and we didn’t cross as a group, since customs was at the end of the day’s ride when we were all spread out, but we’re back in the “land of cheeseburgers” as Steve Miller sang. I will start posting some photos of the people I ride with, or just hang out with. Today there is a photo of Cynthia and me at loading, Also a picture of Tom in front of the American Falls. Both Cynthia and Tom are from the Bay area.
