Great Lakes / Lake Erie
« on: May 16, 2012, 02:24:22 pm »
I'm hoping to do a ride around Lake Erie beginning in late May.  I had planned to avoid the hassle of the border crossing at Detroit/Windsor and take the ferry from Leamington to Pelee Island and back to Sandusky.  Now I find the ferries are in maintenance and *may* be operational on June 1.

The additional 150 miles around the west side of the lake is not a big deal but there still doesn't seem to be any easy way to cross the border.  Has anything changed recently? 

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Routes / Lake Superior - Earliest/Best Time of Year
« on: July 28, 2011, 12:09:54 pm »
Many years ago, I cycled around Lake Ontario in September.  From the moment I finished that tour, I've wanted to tour around Lake Superior.  Apparently, life got in the way - but as a 50th birthday present, I'm going to try my best to make it happen in 2012!

Is June about as early in the year to expect reasonably predictable weather and temperatures around the lake? Any recommendations for the best time of year?

I'm hoping that getting a few weeks blocked out on my calendar will help turn this dream into a reality!

Thanks,
Emmett "Buddy" Pate
