Disregard this post as I see that the excel formatting did not transmit making the directions below virtually impossible to decipher.. I will try another method

I was not able to attach a file for some reason, so below is a the route map we used this past summer, more or less. Its pretty well along the lake. You can disregard the optional climb as I assume you want the most direct route. Also, you can bypass Niagara on the Lake and save a few KM's by turning right at East-West Road, as indicated on the chart about four rows from the bottom.
You should call Go Transit to ensure they can transport your bike back on the bus and to confirm the schedule. Its quite a gutsy trip at this time of year, as the winds gusting off the lake and across the plains might be quite strong and cold, but best of luck on this journey.
