Your exploration this weekend
short doorstep ride: cross the pont Jacques Cartier bridge, and explore the other side.
Country ride (one hour car drive): We're heading for some more Chateauguay valley riding, ormstown to powerscourt, and some kind of variation home. The triangle-shape of this region makes for lots of variety, in both the route and the distance. Our only advice is to avoid the numbered highways, they're for cars, but that leaves lots of good roads for cycling. Good smooth roads too.
