The more I continue on this journey the more I am convinced I should have frozen some sperm before I left England. I fear the worst regarding long term damage to my testicles. I have been looking for motels with a bathtub so that I could immerse my legs etc in cold water. Now I'm thinking that just a sink will do the job.
The Brooks saddle, which on occasion is very comfortable is supposed to mould into your shape once it's broken in. This is why they are so popular. I do love my saddle. It had become a part of me. After some rides we are inseperable.
Unfortunately, as my saddle changes shape to match mine its starting to look like its been in a conker fight, and lost.
You should not judge a Brooks by its cover though - I can confirm it is winning this conker fight.
I think I'm suffering from that rare condition, invertotesticleitus
I don't want to put you off your breakfast so I will try and tell you about today's journey instead.
It was very bumpy.
It was a much hotter day than the previous 2. It's didn't drop below the 30C mark between 11am and 3pm. Humidity levels also climbed right back up again. It properly 'did me in'. I'm a happy man though because I managed 82.96 miles.
That's 254 miles in 3 days and 3,267 in total!
I can confirm that Canadians love yard sales!! In three days I estimate to have ridden past at least 30. They literally pop up every few miles. It's very strange. They definitely like selling junk allot more than they like passing strangers. I have had many grumpy looks coming my way which has really surprised me. I was expecting Canada to be even more friendly than the USA.
I have reached Port Colborne. From here there are some nice relaxing bike paths to follow until I reach Niagra Falls.
