Oh Canada...how the wind blows

Today we left Niagra Falls and entered into Canada. We had a 70 mile ride ahead of us and we all felt great. After crossing the border, we found the wind. The wind was blowing at from the side and from the front. It was brutal. As we tired, the wind never did. I think most of us would agree that today was our hardest day yet.

Also, I had my first crash today. I hope it is my last. Someone in front of me crash when he hit a bad spot in the road and I went down on top of him. The person behind me was able to swerve out of the way. I came out of it with only a scratch on the leg. Akshay, had a few scrapes on his elbow and knee, but nothing serious. However, my bike now had a bent spoke, which made my tire wobbled the rest of the ride. I was able to get it fixed at The Bicycle Shop in Brantsford. They made it good as new.

Yesterday we checked out Niagra Falls. Canada got the better end of the deal. I saw the falls a couple of years ago, but only on the American side. The Canadian side has the majority of the falls. They were spectacular and the mist felt great on such a sunny day. We had dinner in Canada and then went back to the US for some sleep.

I should have some more pics up soon.
