Day 126: London to Dundas, Hamilton
After two days in London spent relaxing, eating, visiting, and eating some more we left this morning with full bellies to head towards Toronto. We found a much easier way to get out of the city than the one we rode in on – staying on a pathway for nearly the whole way out of the city, then took highway 2 most of the way until it split from Goveners Rd, where stayed on the quiet Govenors Rd.
We had an extended stop at the Tim Hortons in Woodstock, where we talked with quiet a few people at the other tables about our trip. They were very excited about it and had many questions for us. Pulling away from Tim Hortons we turned back to wave to all our new friends who were watching us leave.
When we made it to Paris, it was still early enough that we could continue on making tomorrow a shorter day, which was an appealing option since we’ll be staying with my brother in Toronto and it would be nice to arrive earlier. So we decided on another 40km today and made it to the down of Dundas. While we were standing at the side of the road calling the motel that was in town, a guy came up to us to chat. He was on his bike taking his dog out for a walk. He asked us if we wanted to camp in his yard, so we said yes. It was perfect timing. The rest of the evening was spent talking with Dave and eating my moms quinoa salad for dinner – a salad which impressed Dave, as it didn’t look like a typical hard-done-by bike tourer’s dinner.
