Day 24: Ross Port to White River, Ontario 207 km

Our start time was 7:30 am. It was cold and I do not like cold! I found it hard to get going. The road was up and up, then down and up. It was a really hard 100 km, seemed almost like a second ride through the Rockies. We renamed the road from Thunder Bay to Marathon “The Second Great Divide.” It was a beautiful ride. Here’s one of the last glimpses of Lake Superior. Days like today make me glad this is not a solo experience. Sure is nice to have a team for encouragement and strength.
