I was sag today, but the ride was only 45 miles. There was no rush to get out this morning, so we got a chance to see Sara's NEW bike! She shipped her old bike home, and I am sure she will enjoy riding this one.
The day went well at Sag stops where we had a chance to meet some of the locals.
Then we arrived in Buffalo, NY. There were detours, and lots of city traffic. There was a fire drill at one of the high rise buildings, and they blocked my route with a ladder truck across the road. With the one-ways, and name changes it took me a while to find the route again! The entire group of riders were to meet at the "Peace Bridge" area. Those who had passports with them could go across to Canada; five others took a route that kept them on the US side.
After waiting in line to be checked for passports, I drove the Sag wagon across. There were two flags on the Peace Bridge, side by side, marking the border of the two countries.
Tomorrow is a rest day, and it gives us an opportunity to take our time to see the Falls, and take it easy...at least off our bikes for a day!
