Spring Awenda Ride

Yesterday(sunday13th) i headed up to Awenda provincial park for a long endurance ride. This was the first time i did the ride solo, i've done it a few times with the club. Somehow i only took one wrong turn. The ride up past penetang took a little more time than expected, i was hoping 3 hours but with the long uphill grades, and steady headwind it was closer to 4. I think my average speed was around 20-21 kph. The ride back was a little nicer i just hopped on crossland rode and i was soft pedalling at over 40 so i got home in no time.


View of blue mountain from Tiny Beaches road, come july the scenery in this picture would be breathtaking.


In Awenda , still lots of snow but the road was perfect.







Blue mountain in the distance about halfway up. (pics are in reverse order)
