While spinning along we encountered two huge fields of Sunflowers on both sides of the rode. These fields stretched as far as the eyes
could see approx. two hundred acres each & each flower head were
tilted towards the morning sun. We imagined pedaling in the Tour de France ! That’s ride leader Rob Martin & Jim Johnson. The road is the Villa Nova road just north of Bealton. map
For the last five years, the first Wednesday in August is when we do our 115 km Niagara-on-the-Lake to Fort Erie and back, ride to commemorate Godefridus ( Fred ) Verbakel who was a keen cyclist and did this ride annually with a number of club members and friends just for fun. This year 20 cyclists enjoyed a perfect day weather wise and even a brief attempt by a number of Velo Quebec riders to latch on to our group. Along the way the group had lunch at Barrel pizza in Fort Erie. There was a photo op stop at the Falls and rehydrating at Harp’s Irish pub back in NOTL. Mark the first Wednesday in August on your calendar for next year. Thanks to all the photo contributors,
