Bicycle Rides to Ottawa

This is the Lite versions of these documents. The original, personal versions of these accounts include much material, photos, maps, websites, etc., taken from other people's sources. These have, for the most part, been removed from the copies cited below. In some cases, this may result in strange textual references (Such as: As you can see in the map above...)

I have made two bicycle rides to Ottawa. The first, my first long-distance, inter-city ride, was made in my youth, when at the age of 21 I made the two-day rides along the north shore, from Rosemere to Ottawa. Nearly thirty years later, at the end of the Summer of 2003, I rode once more towards Ottawa, this time along the southern shore. Either the distance was further or I was slower, but after spending nearly twice as much time riding, I still fell short of my goal. This is a prime candidate for a re-match.

    My Lord Jesus Christ, receive my thanks for his constant companionship, help, guidance, and protection, without which I would never have been able to accomplish what I did.
