Marvellous Maskinongé ride

Perfect conditions? Summer's finally here.

A perfect day on quiet country roads.

CL-215 water bomber (a dozen forest fires broke out on Thursday night from lightning)

Elevated fire risk, the level is Extreme!

St-Mathieu-du-Parc's turtle, trout, and owl god

Catholic Church at St-Mathieu-du-Parc

Fresh harvested sunshine, in the form of hay.

Church in tiny St-Thomas-de-Caxton

Look up, look way up... summer!!!

We did a north-south ride today near Trois-Rivieres.

Starting at convenient Yamachiche, we rode north to St-Thomas-de-Caxton, St-Elie-de-Caxton, and up through the real northern forest to St-Mathieu-du-Parc, and then we came back the same way. The same way, except it was downhill, which is usually the better way.

The map on Bikely is here.

Conclusion, a great 100 km ride, perfect summer weather, a great way to spend Fête St-Jean.
