Northward Ho!

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Short & sweet...too busy packing for many words...just psyched over all the new territory I'll be covering with 14-15 others from our bike club as we head up to the 1,000 Islands territory of Northern Upstate New York and Ontario Canada.

I've mapped some of the possible rides which we may take:

Point Salubrious & Pillar Point Tour

ridewithgps.com/routes/3
223390



Long Point Tour

ridewithgps.com/routes/3
223345



1st & 2nd part of Thousand Islands Tour
(Wellesley Island would not map with RidewithGPS)

ridewithgps.com/routes/3
223012


ridewithgps.com/routes/3
223047


Looks like some ferry rides will be on order...just being around water ALWAYS gives me boost! Cycling 'round water? Better yet!

Car-pooling with a couple others, one long-term member of the club, the other a newbie who is a yoga instructor.

Here's the hostel at the lighthouse where we are staying:

Hoping there'll be enough room to shoe-horn my guitar into the Volvo wagon we're taking. I'm WAY overdue for dusting it off and seeing if I can remember how to play anything...lol!

I'm emptying out my iPhone so there's room for lotsa pics! :-)

Keep 'er Sparkin' everyone!

    Sounds absolutely fabulous!! Welcome to Ontario, send a wave in my direction please. My dear sister has just been visiting in that Wolf Island area (on Amherst) and absolutely loved it. DH went to law school in Kingston which is a glorious city. Gananoque is so picturesque too.
