Paths in Ottawa, Eastern Townships?

Hi --

I used to live in Montreal and am taking a week's vacation with the bike in Ottawa, Montreal and Knowlton.

Can anyone recommend nice long rides in Knowlton and Ottawa? In Ottawa, we're staying at the Westin (my sister has a place in Kemptville). I know it's a bike town but was hoping for route recommendations in the 40-60 mile range.

If anyone wants to ride, I'm in Ottawa Sunday and in Knowlton the end of next week.

Thanks!

What kind of biking do you do? What type of bike do you have? We have a cottage near Knowlton and I will be there June 21, 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30, July 1. If you're there any of those days I can show you some nice rides. Not too long, but the hills will more than make up for it. Part of the Route Verte also passes near Knowlton:

Hi!

Bike is a cross bike (Kona JTS) currently set up 90% of the time with road wheels and 28s. Typically ride road and crushed stone paths. Short ride is 20-30 miles; long one is 60+ and I've done some self-supported centuries. I'm big (clyde) but can hold my own ok -- on my self-supported century I averaged 14.3 mph.

I'm in Knowlton 27-28. I'd love to meet up on the 28th and go for a ride if the styles / speed are close. If you're thinking more off-road, I can pack knobby tires as well. PM me if interested.
