|Mt Cascade loop counter clockwise from Ottawa - that way you get to bomb down the 18% hill instead of climbing it.|
|With names like Chamonix and Matterhorn you can expect a little climbing on the Quebec side.|
|Water bottle fill up at the spring in Wakefield.|
|There's a reason there is a church built on the side of the hill on Chemin Saint Clement.......if you die trying on it's steep climb, at least you're close to last rites. It ain't 'that' bad - short and pitchy though!|
|Cross Loop Rd is getting lots of construction on the 105 end with the new section of highway and overpass - still all rideable though.|
The second ride, Thursday afternoon, was a much shorter, albiet MUCH more technical ride on the mountain bike out in South March Highlands with Fritz and Ted.
