Blainville-Lachute backroad and Laurentian foothills ride 95km
Blainville-Lachute is an excellent ride.
Bike path, then backroads around airport, then a dirt road to almost-Lachute, then a bit of highway, and then backroads back to the bike path and home.
You can get the map here at Bikely.
Colourful house and colour-coordinated bike rider
Our buddy sure knows how to dress real purdy.
Obligatory falling-down barn photo.
One of Chemin Riviere du Nord's many scenic attractions
Today's ride was south and west of world-class white-elephant Mirabel airport.
Chemin Riviere du Nord is NOT a paved road.
This bothers some riders, but not those who use their bicycle to seek out adventure.
Second moose sighting in the same weekend!
This was an honest-to-goodness chicken coop.
Buddy told us that we would cross the riviere du Nord on a wood bridge.
Buddy was half right.
Ste-Scolastique's 60's church.
The 60s was the last time the church tested the "new ideas" thing.
Everything now looks like summer. Woohoo!
A bit of complicated zig-zagging but the result is a great ride.
Time was tight today but next time we will ride INTO Lachute.
