Lanaudiere hill intro 101
Humans? Or superhumans?
Fast climbers disappearing up the 16% climb
About to descend road in background to St-Emilie
Passed by a pack starting 16% climb on Ste-Emilie's chemin Feuille d'Erables
Rest break after that climb, at riviere Blanche
High valley and good road on chemin de Belle Montagne
View from road of Parc regional des dalles - riviere Assomption
67.5 kilometres is not a very large distance.
But the recipe for this ride includes some quality ingredients.
A dozen hills adds spice and flavour.
Multiple 13, 14, and 16% climbs add heat.
The forest, hills, farms and mountain scenery adds colour.
Descents are the yum-yum-good dessert.
This was a guided ride for someone who wanted a hill-riding 101 course.
The ride delivers 100% of recommended daily allowance of hills, hills and more hills.

As always, we parked at tourist-info/musée Louis Cyr at St-Jean de Matha, and did sort of a clover-leaf shaped ride, to the east, to the north, and to the west.
Very last climb of the day to Church in St-Jean de Matha, and the last road ride ever on that crap hybrid bike of Jim's, because he is joining the modern world and a Specialized Roubaix is supposed to be purchased THIS WEEK!!!!
