|Around the Bay in a day and a bit –
860kms plus another 50 across the bay
I’m back after a day and a half marathon around Georgian Bay. Just over 900kms including 50 on a ferry, and I’m beat!
I left at about 8am on Saturday morning and struck north west toward the Bruce Peninsula. The farms were pretty in the morning sun but soon got pretty repetitive. I find Southern Ontario quite tedious with few curves through never ending farm deserts, I was looking forward to getting up onto The Bruce and feeling like I wasn’t local any more.
It was a cool, sunny morning and I stopped for coffee and a fill up at the Shell in Hanover. Putting on a sweater I continued north when suddenly my otherwise rock-solid 21 year old Kawasaki Concours started hesitating at part throttle. It was annoying but not trip destroying. I immediately began to suspect that Hanover gasoline.
Soon enough I pulled into Wiarton, the gateway to the Bruce, and got myself a warm sausage roll and a very nice (not gas station) coffee at Luscious Bakery & Cafe on the main street; it’s a great place to stop before riding onto the windy Bruce Peninsula.
