During out little family vacation to a cottage that we rented up near Barry's Bay last week, I managed to get out for long road/gravel ride in Renfrew County. It's hilly country up that way, especially in and around the Foymount. Prior to spraining my ankle I had been getting lots of riding in, no real distance riding, but riding nonetheless. This was my first 100 kms (despite what the map above says I did managed a little over 100 km) in a while and I was surprised how good I felt throughout.
Long country roads
Country views - highest populated point in all of Ontario.
Foymount is the highest populated point in all of Ontario. During the Cold War it was an RAF base established to keep a watchful eye out for Russian nuclear bombers. It's also home of the Seirra Design Outlet Store . . . be advised, it will be closing soon and not re-opening - so if you want some nice cheap outdoor clothing and gear you'd better start riding your bike there.
Wolverines! Who needs an RAF base when you've got the Wolverines.
I didn't see any Wolverines or Reds in Foymount.
Country climbs - this just kept going and going.
