8. Ontario Bicycling Across The USA

Through Ontario, Oct. 4 to 10

ontario-c2c4We crossed the St. Clair River on the Blue Water Ferry at Marine City and started through Ontario on Saturday afternoon. We will continue on the Adventure Cycling Association’s “Lake Erie Connector” route until we leave Ontario at the Peace Bridge in Buffalo at the end of the day on Thursday, On Saturday we went east from Wallaceburg and south on provincial route number 15, the Kent Bridge Line (they call roads “lines” here), to a campsite at Rondeau Provincial Park. On Sunday we rode east on provincial route number 3, the Talbot Trail, until it veered to the north; we stayed south on smaller roads that hugged the lake shore. We stopped the bikes in Port Stanley but continued in the truck to St. Thomas, a larger town a few miles away, because the truck needed repair.

We continued east on Monday from Port Stanley on small provincial roads along the north shore of Lake Erie (24, 42, 6, and 3) to Long Point Provincial Park, where we took a day off on Tuesday. On Wednesday we pressed through a rainstorm to Rocky Point Park, and on Thursday we reached Crystal Beach, near Fort Erie. Then we crossed the Peace Bridge at Buffalo and entered New York on Friday.

Congratulations!! I would like to meet you at the park and congratulate you. Where in Genesee Valley Park? I’ll pass the word on to my daughter Kris and she can let the Messenger newspaper know. Jane
