Ignace

Tuesday 9 August 2005
9.00 – 2.00 pm

Outside Ignace

85.3 km
3.22 hours riding
25.3 kph

Beautiful ride today on the narrow shoulder of busy highway 17. The wind, such as it was, was at our backs, the air not too hot, the shoulder good (but narrow), and the hills not too steep. We were warned that it would be “very hilly” and were pleasantly surprised when it was not.

Ignace, lots of room, very few people

Almost nothing but Northern Ontario scenery between Huber’s and Ignace. Borrup’s Corners (on the map) closed for a long time. Lots of lakes, reeds, trees. Haven’t seen my moose yet but several bears and lots of beaver dams. Not a single business or coffee place. Stopped at a rest stop at Raleigh Falls for lunch (packed by Hubers), recommended by a chatty passing highways guy.
