This will be my 3d NEVA outing . The small group I will be riding with will leave from Newmarket on Wednesday , 30 July , pick up another rider in Peterborough , and wind our way to Lake placid for an overnight .
Last year , I set up a GPS route using TYRE , with the map set to the greatest magnification , so I could choose from the faintest lines on the map . Thus , every turn was a crapshoot , every road a wonderful surprise , which often had Philstrom and I shouting with glee in our helmets .
We crossed at Kingston , on the Wolfe Island ferry , and travelled briskly on the slowest route possible .
If I recall , Phil , with his injured ankle ( not my fault - HE chose that day's route ) , only declined one road - south of Port Perry , where the pavement became a goat track , and disappeared into the forest .
Not all my lucid moments are consecutive .
