Yesterday's post called these Country Roads but actually they are County Roads.
Most of the day's riding was excellent. 45 particularly. After Kinmount the road wasn't as good and as I got closer to Bancroft the traffic increased. After Kinmount the road became very hilly too.
I arrived just outside of Bancroft at about 5 and saw the sign for the Lost Lake Campground. It's only 4 km off the 28. The road there was a quiet country road but then I got to their road which was the steepest gravel road I've ever seen. I should of turned around then but I thought how hard can it be? Terrribly hard actually. This is the first day I've ever got off my bike and pushed it. The gravel was too loose and the road too steep to ride up. So I pushed, and stopped a couple of times, to the top. Some 300 metres. It did level out so I got back on and rode a short distance to find myself at the top of a hill which I guessed would take me down to the campground. This hill looked just as steep as the one I just came up. I couldn't see myself pushing my bike up here in the morning so I turned around and rode back out to Road 28.
Mumbling to myself the whole way.
There was a sign further on for the Bancroft Tent and Trailer Park but I lost track of which road and which direction it was. So I rode around and looked for a motel. The only one I could find is where I am right now. The bed is very nice.
I think I'll sleep in tomorrow.
Today's photo is of a powerline strung with pairs of shoes. I've seen this in cities but this seemed like it was in the middle of nowhere.
