Apple blossom ride

There are several parts of the local "Monteregie" region that are known for fields of apple trees. Covey hill is one such place.

The upcoming holiday weekend (dollard day/Victoria Day) should see the peak of apple blossom activity.

This is an incredible visual experience. Do not miss it!

A great ride would be Hemmingford to Franklin/Rockburn along the US/Canada Border on the first concession road. Another good ride would be Ormstown - Covey Hill - Rockburn - Dewittville - Ormstown.

Here is the map of the 80 km/three hour ride I did last weekend. This goes through much of the good apple tree area.
