Cycling Lake Superior (helpful locals, an unexpected accommodation, making friends)

By Erlendur in Canada 87 views 24th Feb, 2021 Video Duration: N/A
17 to 24 July: The ride around Lake Superior is called breathtaking and scenic. And I totally agree with that. However, the only existing road, the HWY 17 is a dangerous bottleneck. Right after Sault Ste. Marie one can avoid the HWY by taking a few side roads, but soon there is only one way. Everyone has to take it, motorized or non-motorized, trucks and cyclists. You can imagine...
Additionally to that, one has to cycle through the very long Lake Superior Provinical Park, in which steahlt camping is prohibited and strictly enforced. Staying at official campgrounds can get very expensive.

Enough negativity - I loved cycling there. Arriving in the small towns along the shoreline, each roughly 100 kms/1day apart and the amazing views in between - just incredible.
In S.S.M. I met two cyclists from Montreal and we unintentionally leap frogged for a few days, which means, we saw each other in the upcoming small towns, then separated again, then met again and so forth. We had the same daily average and pace and at some point we decided to cycle together and I can say, we became friends. It was amazing to share the way with them. Eventually we arrived in Thunder Bay and left the lake behind.

In this week's "Supporting Local Tourism" I was invited to travel to Ancient Hill Winery in Kelowna BC. A smaller winery location just behind the Kelowna International Airport this winery offers a premier selection of wines.
The winery open 7 days a week from 10:30 am-5:30 pm is family and dog (on leash) friendly. Come and eat on the patio (with a purchase of a glass of wine per adult), enjoy the views and the beautiful architecture!
It is a perfect location and way to support local tourism!

This week's "Supporting Local Tourism" looks a little bit different.
Instead of visiting one location, I decided we needed to talk about supporting our local restaurants and showcase some of the restaurants in Vernon BC. While I would have liked to have shown them all, as they all need our support at this time, that would be one long video.
Enjoy this week's videos on Supporting our Local tourism by supporting our restaurants and how Vernon BC is helping restaurants at this time!
Restaurants showed:
-Phoenix Steakhouse
-Marten Brewing Co.
-Harry's Fish and Chips
-The Curry Pot
-The Med
-Sweet Hoopla
-Los Huesos
-Bean Scene Coffee House
-Lollipop Lane (In Teach and Learn)
