Day 23: Thunder Bay to Ross Port 201 km
Temperatures were cool which made for a good day of riding. Rob and Jacquie visited the Terry Fox memorial off Hwy 17. The road is a limited access highway so we could not ride our bikes via that route.
Most of the day we were close to the Lake Superior shore line on Hwy 17. What a beautiful ride. Of all the riding we have done so far today would be in the top 3 or 4 most spectacular views. It would be nice to spend a couple weeks in this area. It reminded me of the Rockies. We had some significant climbs and the wind was with us part of time and against us part of the time.
Since Rob is still not riding because of his crash on the 17th, he offered Richard the use of his bike. What a step up for Richard. Rob’s bike is a new carbon fiber road bike. Richard’s bike is an old steel frame bike.
