A scorcher today - 19 degrees no less - and a repeat of the beautiful McGregor lake loop. But this time instead of the busy 307 back into Gatineau we hopped off onto the aptly named Montee Paiement (after Simon missed it once in a hopeful attempt to 'bypass'). Paiement (French for payment) is a great road but at the end of 120 km ride it has a nasty kick in the form of a seemingly endless series of mini-climbs. Anyway, today's purpose was to hurt the legs a little and push the pace so really it was ideal!
Photos: Simon looks relaxed (note that he is not pedaling); Chris less relaxed (note that he pedaling up hill, seemingly at some pace).
