I decided to see how far I could go today, to improve my chances of getting to church on time tomorrow morning. The weather was beautiful, and easy to appreciate after days of rain.
I stuck to the bike route I'd printed from the Internet as much as possible, though I missed a turn at one point and went at least 5 km off course. I didn't wind up stopping for lunch, so fatigue set in around 3. I bought an Ottawa map, and when I got within range I decided to take a shortcut to one of the campgrounds. The shortcut turned out to be gravel, and very hilly, so it may have actually slowed me down, but it got me where I was going. I called ahead to Leela and she said not to sweat it, but I'll try my best to get there on time anyway.
