Riviere Chateauguay river/valley rides - the two basic routes

Here are the two basic Chateauguay Valley bike rides we do the most often. Numerous variations of starting point and road-selection are possible to make about ten different rides.

Did you know that Chateauguay Valley rides start a mere 50 km from Montreal?

A couple of side-by-side favorite rides


Ormstown > Powerscourt > Rockburn  > Dewittville

The first is the Ormstown-Powerscourt-Rockburn ride with the indescribably excellent First Concession and Rockburn Side Road sections. We especially like doing this late in the day, so a noon start is no problem!

Howick > Covey Hill > Havelock

Our second ride is a bit longer and goes up Covey hill. You can turn around at Franklin and repeat the route for an out and back ride, or take the quick way home.

There is a lot of new asphalt on this ride. A cyclists dream ride!

Both of these rides totally rock from the border back north to the start. Downhill is good hill.

We confess that we call these two rides Highly Excellent. This is no B.S.

Did this ride today, I went on chemin Boyd Settlement instead of chemin Gore, this way you don't have to bike on the 202. I will try the 2nd ride next time.
