I just got off the phone with my son Andy from Morden. He and his wife, Angela went to visit her parents in Niverville on saturday morning and he decided to cycle the 115 km from Morden to Niverville. He started out at 7:00 A.M. and was in Niverville by shortly after 10:00 A.M., making only a brief stop at the Morris Coop for some gatorade. His average speed was about 38 kph. He feels that he “cheated” somewhat because of the strong southwesterly winds that made the trip quite effortless.
I think he deserves the help from the wind this time, because last weekend, he rode alone about 80 km out from Morden to meet Ron, Neil and myself, then returned 80 km with us providing tremendous help in our small pelaton.
Ron, you’ve really started something, with these Morden rides.
