The first section of the route to get made was Eastern Ontario.

I met Juames on a pre arranged spot on the side of the highway.




Many many emails had gone back and forth between the two of us over the weeks leading up to today. A potential route was created that we intended to follow. This section of the route starts at the Quebec/Ontario border.

After some gravel/paved roads we took this old rail bed




After a Tim Hortons break (the Canadian version of Starbucks, but better abd cheaper ) in the town of Renfrew we made our way to the start of the K&P Trail. The K&P is an old rail bed that is open to motorbikes and is a fun double track run.






The trail passes several lakes and through a few small towns.








A couple of larger "puddles" during the spring season or after a heavy rain




A detour of off the K&P trail on some gravel roads bring the route to a fun hydro line (Triple Tower Hydro Line)




A couple of rocky sections




A few water crossings




Some nice vista's of the trail curling into the horizon







After finishing the hydro line the route takes some nice twisty back roads




A section or two that gets muddy during the wet season










Lot's of nice lakes along this section of the route. This one is at Granite Lake and would make a great spot to spend the night or have a swim on a hot day




Many miles of these types of roads





A great day where nothing went wrong and the riding was fast and fun
