Next new ride: magog-compton

We were looking for a new ride. Where to look? Bikely to the rescue! This source of user-generated interactive bike maps is one of the great resources of the web. We've had a few great rides sourced from this site.

So... this Magog-Compton ride caught our eye.

Actually, this is a Magog, Georgeville, Ayer's Cliff, Compton, North Hatley, and back to Magog ride.

If you think that this is in a very scenic area, you'd be right.

If you think that this is in a very hilly area, you'd be right again.

If you think that this will be our next big bike adventure, you'd be right a third time!

We spent too much time in this area as students, and any reason to go back is a good one. This looks like a very good one!

What's also nice is that the starting point in Magog is a nice direct drive from Montreal on the Eastern Townships autoroute.

We would like to thank the Bikely user Flabbe for creating this bike route.

Home renovations are not quite over, but we are sure that we are going to ride here real soon!
