Favorite easy ride: Lacolle to Franklin Centre (Verger Stevenson's Orchard)

This is becoming the standard ride, standard easy start version anyway.

Add some extra distance and excellent scenery by going west to Chateauguay River south of Huntingdon to Athelstan & the Powerscourt covered bridge (yellow on map).

This is the short version of what is definitely my favorite easy mid-distance ride.

You can do the ride with just the southern trace on the map also, but then you would miss half the fun.

What I changed this year is making the first half of the ride a bit easier. Following the southern trace for a pure allez-retour ride means the first half is always trending uphill and can be a bit brutal!
