On my water bottles
I was admiring the view from Ten-Mile Point (briefly the site of a Jesuit mission in the mid Seventeenth Century) when a middle-aged couple emerged from their bike laden car, noticed Leonardo leaning against a wall fully laden and commented on the number of water bottles (3). Apparently, the husband had hydration issues. I explained one was for electrolytes (e.g. Gatorade) and the other two were for just water, the one on the bottom cage being a reserve. In truth, I don't think I really need the reserve from this point but, I think I will keep it full until Guelph and the last of the 100+ km days. In fact, I hadn't given it much thought until writing this entry!
