Ste-Martine ride

Saturday I parked at Ste-Martine Quebec and did a ride along the bike path to the west end, then to Howick, brysonville, Bataille de la chateauguay museum at Allan's Corners, then riverside cycling back to Ste-Martine and a perfect creme glace molle.

This ride touched two abandoned bridges. Also I took a side detour to Beauharnois, and rode back via the bike path between Beauharnois and Ste-Martine.

There were windy gusts that made the cycling upwind slow, but made the tailwind sections woohoo!

Map guide:
Blue dots - main Ride route

Red dots - tiny side excursions
Excusions, in ride sequence, are: 1) the abandoned riviere Anglais bridge acrross the road from the end of the bike path, 2) the Battle of the Chateauguay museum and drinking water fountains, and 3) the closed bridge across the Chateauguay at Howick/Georgetown church, and 4) the St-Laurence river at Beauharnois/Beauharnois hydro electric power station, and connects to the Seaway bike path and other paths going west to Valleyfield.
