Another bike trip today. This time we went over the north shore and headed up to Lac Du Bois Grasslands. There’s a dirt road that runs into the parkland and it’s pretty nicely gravelled. The only other vehicle we saw was a person sitting in her truck watching birds. Can’t beat that.
It was beautiful out there. My only issue was that the 4 km we rode in was all uphill. Seeing as I’m still in the process of getting fit that was a bit tricky for me. I did it – but I had to give up before Joel. We found a more rugged trail that went off up into the hills but I just wasn’t able to manage it.
Part of my problem was that I just couldn’t get enough traction with my current tires. I’m dangerous enough on my bike 😉
While Joel took off up the path to check out what it was like I took a panoramic shot of the scenery in the “DMD” app on my iPhone.
The ride back to the car? Down hill most of the way and it was a blast! It’s a short ride for us coming in at only 8 km return but it took us an hour. It was hard work – a steady incline but worth it. I’ll definitely vote to go back 🙂
