I managed another good day today. 87.81 miles and I arrived in Tillsonburg just before 5pm
It was a long day - over 9 hours, including stops for food.
I had told myself I would only ride 55 miles and stop at St Thomas. However when I got there the town really pissed me off so I just carried on. I felt like Steve Martin in Trains Planes and Automobiles.
I stopped at various Motels to ask if there was any availability and got wound up on each occasion. So I decided to pedal on. Just having a grumpy day I think.
I kind of feel like a day off but I'm determined to reach Niagra Falls in good time. If all goes to plan tomorrow I will reach Port Colborne which is very close to the big attraction. This means I can get up early the following day and have plenty of time to explore, before crossing to see it from the USA viewpoint too.
I'm really looking forward to getting a mobile back when I cross back to the America. I realise now how much I rely on it for calling ahead to arrange accomodation. It's also really useful for double checking you are on the right road on the maps app. Getting used to working without it has just been a pain in the backside.
Not being able to plan ahead had stressed me a little. I can't complain though. I'm lucky to be living a carefree life at the moment. It is a real physical strain though and my backside and legs have constant discomfort after about 10am on any given day.
