Maskinongé ride turned out to be 112 km!

Today's ride included St-Alexis-des-Monts and turned out to be 112 km. 112 excellent kilometres. Today we were reminded why we like this ride so much - it is a great ride.

Skip the side trip to At-Alexis and you have a nice 90 km distance.

This ride more-or-less as we did it today is a real favorite ride of ours.

The camera battery was dead so no pics but the highlights include:

snow in the woods as we got north on the ride
New asphalt between St-Elie-de-Caxton and Hunterstown
New asphalt on the downhill to Ste-Angele-de-Premont
generally clean roads
This ride's distance:difficulty ratio is solidly intermediate
The ride follows a few rivers and scenery is often great
The Calvaire lookout in Ste-Elie-de-Caxton has a new lookout deck
Crossing the last bridge on the ride offers a decent beach for some reposing

The commute to the start of the ride is autoroute express, it is a very easy trip.

can you add "next" & "previous" buttons on your blog design so it's easier for the readers to go through your entries?
