Hi. Would you be willing to provide more details on your trip? So of the first questions I have are:
What is the total distance? It looks like if you go the entire route, it is over 800 miles. But it looks like on some maps there is a ferry or something in the west that avoids Detroit and shortens the trip a few hunderded miles. What did you do?
Is ther a better way to go? Clockwise or counter clockwise?
How many days did it take you?
Are there campgrounds or cheap hotels along the way?
How much of the ride is on trail (no vehicles) versus road riding? Is any of the road riding dangerous?
What were some of the highlights?
We rode Pittsburgh - DC (375 miles) in 2011, and Erie Canal, Albany to Niagara Falls, Canada (405 miles) in 2012....so looking for something a little more challenging.
It looks like Erie is longer than Ontario, but it didnt seem like Ontario had as much to do.
Thanks in advance for your help!
