Tips for viewing the ride on Google Maps:

Expand map to full screen.
Change map view to Satellite (icon in upper right corner)
Use the Pan and Zoom controls to get a close look at current and previous positions. (when in Satellite view and zoomed way in you will be able to see detailed imagery of where we are)
Check in throughout the day to see ride progress.
Note: depending on length of ride there could be more than 1 page of trackpoints. The most recent 50 trackpoints are on the opening page. Click page arrow at bottom if there is more than 1 page to see more track points.

Just make sure you don't get too many updates at intervals of 10 miles or more on the south side of the border!

10-4

We got nabbed 3 years ago in Voyageur Park. My riding partner got a $210 ticket for speeding above the 45 mph limit in the park. I was following behind him and they didn't get me on the radar so I didn't get a ticket...nice officer. I split the cost of the ticket to help out the friend.

Ontario has a 50 kph (approximately 35 mph) speed limit but have never been bothered by the OPP. Have been checked for a trail permit several times over the years though.
