Firday afterwork sunset ride


Home from work.

Change out of corporate serfware and ride over to, up to the top of, and down Mount Royal.

The following were awesome:

  • The deep forest of Olmstead Road a piece of the countryside hidden from the urban landscape, the crown jewel of Montreal.
  • Beaver lake lookout
  • Olmstead Road downhill to Pine avenue's (i.e. from monument) view of downtown
  • The view from the Mont Royal Chalet lookout over downtown, the Monteregie hills and eastern townships, Vermont, and Covey Hill
  • The view north to the Outremont Summit, Oka mountain and the laurentians and Lac St-Louis
  • The summit, again.
  • The ride down through the canyon and Camelien Houde
  • McGill Campus
  • Upper Outremont and the Mile-End Stream where it crosses under Maplewood
  • Scenic ruelle Maplewood

Sunsets after work will soon disappear with the arrival of autumn's darkness. So go outside and get some sunset today.
