Backroad ride around beautiful Brome County

An excellent bike ride around the Eastern Townships.

Dirt roads are bike roads.

View of Mont Sutton from Tibbits Hill.

Tibbits Hill school, a piece of history (built in 1844)

Sometimes a dirt road is the best road to take, because it is scenic, quiet, and scenic some more!

We went for a dirt road ride starting in Bromont and riding south in a big counterclockwise loop around the Bromont and Iron Hill mountains.

We did this ride on our mountain bikes, because dirt roads and skinny road tires are not always 100% compatible.

There are excellent views of farms and forests, Sutton, Jay and Mansfield mountains, and the best view ever of Lac Brome.

You muscles will thank you in July for making this effort in April.

Map of ride is available at
(Note: We used some bike trails in the village of Bromont that are not on this map)
