Day 135: Montreal to Trois Rivieres
An early start, especially considering we were leaving Montreal, and we were even joined by our neighbour Peck, who rode a fair distance with us before turning back. This was the first time we took Montreal’s bike pathways east off the island. We had taken them west many times before. We did know the turns we wanted when there could potentially be any confusion so that was certainly helpful. Otherwise the ride off-island was not overly spectacular, going past many industrial buildings and the working Port of Montreal.
Once off the island we had some nice waterfront riding again. It was a long way to Trois Rivieres but we made it without a problem – we must now be getting used to the earlier sunsets.
