Lanaudiere - Some spring hills

Lanaudiere is the eastern Laurentians. The bike riding is excellent. It is a cyclists dream.

I parked at-Jean de Matha, headed for St-Emilie de L'Energie, then to St-Come, stopped for a soft ice cream, then retraced a couple of km and headed to St-Alphonse Rodriguez, and next to St Beatrix. Here I turned on chemin St-Cecille, then chemin de Belle Montage, a great high valley. Then I arrived at Depaneur Lau-Dan, and back to St-Jean de Matha.

80 km ride. 4 hours approx. Lots of hills and great scenery.

There are still traces of snow.

Here is the route: the green dots indicate the shorter ride option by turning in St-Emilie on to Chemin de feuilles d'Erables (at very bottom of big hill). The blue dots are today's ride.
