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.
