Day 41: 68 miles from London, ON → Brantford, ON

This was a nice easy spin across southern Ontario, where the scenery was mostly corn and soybean fields surrounded by trees. Early in the ride we crossed the 3000-mile mark for the entire trip, leaving only about 640 miles to go. I’m excited that we’ll be arriving in Niagra Falls tomorrow, where we’ll have our fifth and final rest day. Get ready for the inevitable photos of the falls!

I have updated the fundraiser page to include 3000 miles worth of the per-mile pledges, which makes the total funds raised so far $13,048. Honestly, I’m stunned, and I can’t thank you enough for your generosity.

Speaking of fundraising, about half of the 30 cross-country riders on this trip are raising money for various causes, including my frequent companions Scott and Matt.
Scott is raising money for the Shriner’s Hospital for Children - Philadelphia, which took care of his sister. His website address is
Matt is raising money for Centrepoint, the UK’s leading charity for homeless young people, supporting over 10,000 16-25 year olds to find homes and jobs every year. Here’s a link to Matt’s site: Centrepoint.
