Canada Day ride!

In tribute to our national holiday I set out to explore streets in Gatineau named after a few of our First Nations.

Rue des Algonquins and it’s surrounding streets are a pleasant meander along large wooded properties. Very nice to bike through. The Algonquins were residents in this area long before Mr Champlain floated up the river.

Rue des Montangais and surrounding streets have some big new chateauesque-ish homes.

Les rues des Hurons and Abénakis, had lots of parked cars.

The blue line on the above map is a very nice section of NCC bike path that weaves through wooded area and links up to a number of other paths.
