One day from the start
We are a day away from beginning our second tour of the summer. Our first tour, and our first unsupported adventure, was a trip from our home to Pelee Island and back. We did that trip as a warm up for the longer trip around Lake Ontario that was planned for later in the summer. The Pelee Island trip proved that a longer trip was well within our abilities, in fact we learned that just doing the Lake would likely be to short, so we have added a side trip to the Erie Canal.
Our bikes are a matched set of Opus Legato touring bikes that we purchased earlier this year. Last season we did a short tour around Lake Champlain using our road bikes, travelling from B&B to B&B. This year we are adding camping to the mix and are carrying more weight than we feel is safe for the road bikes. We will stay in motels if camping is not available and will make use of the Warmshowers.org network as well.
