I had a most interesting ride from Brock University: over east to the canal, down the canal to the lakeshore trail, across that trail to Port Dalhousie, an extended lunch hour there, and finally back south to the University.
Much of the way was on bike paths, about half of them hard gravel. We rode near the lake and along the old canal.. The last effort of the day was a climb up the Niagara Escarpment on a gravel road. That brought us right to the university’s back door.
LotStreetWiz and Andie did a longer ride and were the first ones back from it. I hope their group didn’t wait for them when they didn’t show up.
