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
