the wind is our enemy ride

 The first village after Yamachiche is St-Thomas de Caxton.  The wind was already a force to be reckoned with. We would reckon with it all the way to Ste-Elie-de-Caxton.

The wind was not our friend today, in fact it was a pretty bad enemy. it was the the kind of friend you don't want hanging around, and it was hanging around all the time today!

Th first fun little river crossing is just after St-Thomas-de-Caxton. it's a zoom-zoom little descent, then you crawl up the other side, which is better that dealing with flats + 50 km/h winds.

 This sign speaks for itself.

End of the world road... uh-oh.

The riverbanks of the riviere du Loup have been renaturalized, and is a great spot for a "beach" break.

Chemin Augusta is right after Chemin de bout de monde, and it is a favorite part of the ride

 Chemin Agusta still had some snow in the ditch!

The lookout at the Calvaire behind & above the church has a great new lookout deck

A nice village, and a nice distance from Yamachiche for the first half of a bike ride

Today's falling down barn has in fact completely fallen down.

Here is the ride map on bikely.
