This is Day 5 of our ride, leaving Golden Hill St. Park, heading towards Niagara Falls. This was shot at a 1 second time lapse, so it's a bit smoother. For example, when the riders ahead of me moon the camera it lasts for a couple of frames, not just one.

We were in good spirits during this part of the ride. The film ends when we stopped for ice cream. The previous day was our longest day, at 169km, and this was to be a shorter day. We still ran into some challenges though, like rain, getting separated in the rain (the lead two turned, the lagging 5 went straight), trying to figure out where to cross the border, trying to find a bicycle shop that was still in business. Ultimately, we succeeded. It was such a lift being on home soil again. I think it had something to do with the sun shining on us as well. The day ended with a fast descent down the Niagara Escarpment, and a quick left hand turn past a grumpy pickup truck driving anti-cyclist, into camp. It wasn't the best place we stayed all trip, but we made the most of it. Instead of showering (they cost $1 per 5 minutes) we 'swam' in the giant football field sized wading pool. We built a campfire with some wood that we 'found' on our campsite. Stories. Lots of em.
