Today was a brutal day. After working our way out of Sault Ste Marie we biked kilometer after kilometer of quiet back roads with plenty of hills, way too little pavement and lots of loose gravel, and absolutely no place to get food or drinks. I bonked badly and after finally coming upon the Little Rapids General Store and downing a couple of Gatorades and some snacks, we limped into Thessalon and got a room at the Carolyn Beach motel.

That’s all for today.

*Bonk: In endurance sports such as *cycling* and running, hitting the wall or the *bonk* describes a condition caused by the depletion of glycogen stores in the liver and muscles, which manifests itself by sudden fatigue and loss of energy.
