Hi, hilltowner. Glad you were able to finish your ride and get home safely.
I live in the general area, have visited the trail often, but never on a bike. I'd like to give it a try, especially in the fall or late summer when the bugs have died off. IIRC, the trail isn't exactly smooth. What kind of bike were you on, and what would you recommend?
How badly did that storm hit the K and P? It destroyed the home of a family friend, and her whole area (Norway Lake near Calabogie) was hit very hard.
Anyway, your whole tour sounds fascinating. I'd love to do it all, or any part of it.
My plan is to take the Cyclopark PPJ on the Quebec side up the Ottawa River to the whitewater rafting area, then return to Ottawa via some backroad route in Ontario. Hadn't thought of including the K and P in the trip, but I didn't even realize it extended to Renfrew. So thanks for some interesting ideas.
