Hi everyone, sorry for not posting earlier, we were staying in a house with NO INTERNET CONNECTION, can you believe it?
This is not a good excuse, there was a Tim's down the road, but I decided to post when we actually got home, which was tonight.
What a ride!!!!!!!! We cooked in Brampton on the way to Peterborough, 40C for a while, then back to a cool 37.
We got to Peterborough and discovered a 3" screw in the back tire, fortunately there was family to lend me tools and take me around the bike shops looking for a tire. I am now running a Metzler on the back, seems OK.
Having cooked we then were marinated in rainwater and Lake Superior fog at a cool 10C, (so we wouldn't go off while marinating)
Caramelcat's rainsuit proved inadequate, we arrived in The Soo to find she was just as wet underneath as on the outside, we fixed that and headed home, and The Soo to Thunder Bay was cold wet and windy all the way, but at least she was dry.
Today was a great ride, 23C, sunny and not much wind, the sort of day that makes you forget all the others.
We had a great time at NASSIR, Bob and Anita and all their helpers did a great job and I even learnt about bourbon, (I may try and forget that). Hope to see y'all at that place whose name I have forgotten next year.
