Day 40: Port Horon, MI to London, Ontario - 90 miles with 1,500' of climbing

Today we all lined-up together in the hotel parking lot so we could travel across the Blue Water Bridge (traffic was held back for us to cross) and through Canadian customs in a group.

One of the riders, Jeff, took us on a short detour through a treelined parkway, a beach and a park where his Mother met us with pastries.

Along the rest of the route we rode through the villages of Sarina, Watford, Srathroy, Mt. Brydges and London. We passed several fields covered with solar panels, an old cemetary full of children from the 1860s and many farm houses that had signs posted to discourage the installation of wind turbines. We got to the hotel around 2:00 giving us plenty of time to shower, clean our chains, rehydrate, visit a bike shop and work on the internet before rap (daily meeting) at 4:45.

Roadkill: 374
Flats: 4
Hurts: N/A today
