Heading to the... Mauricie river and Ste-Thecle
Passing Pont Bordeleau (1932)
Along the Mauricie river. One of Quebec's great rivers.
Route 159 south from St-Roch-de-Mekinac
We are going to repeat a ride we did last summer, a ride along the Mauricie river upstream from Grand-Mere. Then we turn inland, follow a narrow valley south, then cruise some open farmland, cross a covered bridge and we're home. Strangely this ride starts on the west side of the river, but is clearly an eastern-Mauricie ride.
This is a really great ride. The weather is good. The biking is going to be incredible.
