Port Rowan, ON to Lowbanks, ON; 73 miles, sunny, SW at 5-10 mph, 60-70’s
Today’s ride continued to follow the Lake Erie shore line on local, low traffic side roads. The terrain was a little more rolling than the pancake flat farm land earlier. There were gullies every now and then with short but steep grades to spin up. Momentum from the down was good enough to get half way up the up. There are many cottages along the lake shore with the occasional public access beach. We noticed that it was becoming more commercialized as we head closer to the Niagara River. We passed one giant industrial plant that I believe is an iron ore smelter. We had our share of road construction to deal with, but only the SAG wagon had to actually detour. We had lunch at Peacock Point in a nice local park overlooking the lake. Down the road I had to stop and take a picture of one person’s solution to launching their boat in high water, a garden tractor.
