Mauricie: Louiseville, St-Severe and Ste-Elie-de-Caxton
North of St-Severe
back to Louiseville, just before sunset (as planned!)
Arriving back to civilization, only 5 km to go
Chowdown for the cow crowd
Perfect weather for a bike ride
High scenic value north of St-Severe (click on the pic)
Corn, corn, and more corn
Tree tunnel on Grand Rang south of St-Paulin: we're likin' it.
St-Leon-le-Grand's mini-me church
When you are in St-Leon-le-Grand and are looking to the right side of the road at the church, you have just missed an important left turn!
Harvest storage units
On top of the Calvaire in St-Elie-de-Caxton (a favorite CFM scenic lunch spot)

Scenic, even from space.
We kept up the scenic theme with this ride in the western Mauricie.
We started in Louiseville (106 km from home) and rode to St-Severe, then super scenery to Ste-Elie-de-Caxton, back via St-Paulin, and south on Grand-Rang (we discover that it is a much better experience to ride it in the southern direction) to St-Leon-le-Grand, (where we remembered the turn) and across the Riviere de Loup river, and back Louiseville.
We are continuing to be amazed at the quality of the riding in this area of Quebec. This ride, like virtually all the riding we have done around here, is completely excellent.
