I found today’s ride to be drudgery. 110 km of rocks and trees with the odd lake thrown in before we arrived at the tourist information center near the town of Atikokan. I was cold all day long today. I wore my light jacket the whole day and at 100 km added a vest. The temperature wasn’t bad but the wind was cold.
We stopped at the information center where I bought a chocolate bar and a pop. Michel and I sat at the picnic table (Elaine had ridden ahead at the 40 km mark) and had lunch.
Atikokan has an ice cream store however I was too cold to ride the 3 km each way into town for an ice cream plus I just wanted to keep moving towards the campground.
About another 20 km down the highway we stopped for a rest. A cyclist going the opposite direction stopped to talk to us. Ram had left Toronto on July 7th and was going to be riding for another 3 days. He was travelling unsupported so his bike was pretty well loaded down.
