Sunday afternoon ride to Terrebonne

What the...

We did a Sunday afternoon ride to Terrebonne, which is northeast across Montreal island, northeast across Laval island (ile de jesus) and finally, northeast across the Mille-Ile river to the town of Terrebonne.

Our ride across Laval included a complete loop of the eastern tip of the island. Coming backon Masson directly from the bridge to Terrebonne was a lot faster than the outward segment!

There is an older-historic part of Terrebonne that we did not explore, and will be worth a return visit sometime when we leave home earlier than today's 2 pm!

Turn-around point at Terrebonne Catholic church

This was a ride to the northeast, and of course the wind today was 30 km/h, from the Northeast!!!

Stats, ride distance: about 75 km, ride time was about four hours. Weather was sunny!

Pie IX bridge, with sidewalks for bikes.
