Standard Spring Ride in Chateauguay Valley

This is the standard ride. There are a dozen variations to make it longer or shorter. Avoid numbered highways. The backroads are the bike roads. One highlight is the recently restored Powerscourt covered bridge, Quebec's oldest covered bridge and an excellent rest stop. The concrete deck at the east side is an excellent terrace for picnic and a quick snooze, er stretch!

Here is the standard version (note you can split this ride into two for a shorter version: do an out-and-back ride along the Chateauguay river, or out and back on Rockburn sideroad):

Here is a slightly longer and even better version:

Look at my other bikely rides to see the many variations for rides from 50 km to 150 km.

Here's a blog post with a few pictures before the bridge was restored.
