Marvellous Maskinongé ride
Perfect conditions? Summer's finally here.
A perfect day on quiet country roads.
CL-215 water bomber (a dozen forest fires broke out on Thursday night from lightning)
Elevated fire risk, the level is Extreme!
St-Mathieu-du-Parc's turtle, trout, and owl god
Catholic Church at St-Mathieu-du-Parc
Overlooking the town on top of the "calvaire" in St-Elie-de-Caxton
Fresh harvested sunshine, in the form of hay.
Church in tiny St-Thomas-de-Caxton
Look up, look way up... summer!!!
We did a north-south ride today near Trois-Rivieres.
Starting at convenient Yamachiche, we rode north to St-Thomas-de-Caxton, St-Elie-de-Caxton, and up through the real northern forest to St-Mathieu-du-Parc, and then we came back the same way. The same way, except it was downhill, which is usually the better way.
The map on Bikely is here.
Conclusion, a great 100 km ride, perfect summer weather, a great way to spend Fête St-Jean.
