Best Biking route Mississauga to Waterloo (need it for tmw!)

Ok so finally some warm days are here and I really want to try this. i want to go from mississauga (9th line and eglinton) to university of waterloo.

Google maps shows two routes with no highway use one for walking and one by car. both of them seem to have long stretches of farm land or forest and i am just wondering which one is better. By better i mean have more stores to fill up water and by food thats my main concern and then secondly easy riding (flatter = better) and lastly scenic.

I use to bike about 40km/day in two settings (20 each time) last summer and did it fairly easily. I am in much better shape now and can do 45 minutes of intesnse spinning class/boot camp etc. so i think i can manage ~85km to waterloo specially since time is not a concern. i drink loads >gallon/day. i can only carry about 1.5L on me so need atleast say 3 equally spaced food/water spots

Thank you!

That's a big Url. I'd do more the "walking" route, but I'd take Derry Rd. Campbellville Road has too many Drumlins. Plus the Derry route will take you through towns like Kilbride, Carlisle, and Freelton to restock on Water. No matter what you'll have a bit of a gap between civilization between Freelton and Cambridge.
