Variable wind, lighter than the last ride on this trail; partly cloudy.


Terry was good enough to take me down to Port Colborne for my second visit to the Friendship and Niagara Parkway Trails. We talked about what else?–the election and the pandemic.

Got underway a little late, but in the end, it made no difference. I still made it home for a gin and tonic before dinner.

I found myself taking water/refreshment breaks more often, but that seemed to speed up my actual riding. Even stopped at Tim Horton’s, in Chippewa, for an Iced Capp!

Shorter day planned today. On Sunday, the Greens are dropping me off in Port Maitland. I’ll ride home along the old Feeder Canal (for the Welland Canal system). Good long ride but its flat. Pray for favourable winds.

Thanks for caring.

Important Notice: On Saturday, September 25, local dignitaries, and Healing Cycle supporters will take a leisurely ride around town to highlight the wonderful work of our own Community Palliative Care Service. One gang will power a Pedal Pub cycle and the rest of us will follow behind on bikes. It’s certainly will be more symbolic than energetic—just six kilometers or so. Come out, make a small contribution, ride along, and help bring attention to the cause. Meet at Pedal Pub, on Mary Street at 8:30am on the 25th.
