Rainy rest day over, today it's time to ride again!

The rainy thursday is over and now ancient history, so it is time to get on the bike again.

Today we will try a nice looking (on bikely) ride around Mont Orford and west of lac Memphremagog. The ride is callec cyclo-magog and we're leaving in T-20:00

A major expansion of Parc Orford was just announced, but still now news on land a bit further north, specifically the Lac Larouche (no-)rock climbing area where rock climbing has been banned for two decades. We are still waiting for further announcements for this land to be acquired and pronounced legal-to-climb. Do NOT go climbing here before it is legal, we have been waiting a long time for the climbing ban to end, so don't screw it up with the goal of legal-climbing being so close!

But we digress.

This ride will be sort-of "next door" to the excellent Knowlton-Sutton-Mansonville-Owls Head- Lac Memphremagog (link) ride of last year. At the time I called it "Sutton Loop - Southern Quebec's most beautiful ride" and that is still accurate.

Today's weather forecast is a bit iffy, but this week has been pretty good so far, only occasional rain showers, so let's hope today's rain stays away!
