from montreal to ottawa this weekend

Just got back from a two-day cycling trip from Montreal, QC to Ottawa, ON.

Pictures on Dropbox

Quick summary:
Total distance: 246km
total time on bike: 14hours 40 minutes
average speed: 16.7 km/h
max speed: 46 km/h

Details to follow.

Not really winter but for the first day where I left hours before sunrise and it was freezing. Everything was covered in frost. I rode over a road with salt and ice, and my lock got stuck when I stopped for breakfast and I had to defrost it

Route day 1
A home, B breakfast, C lunch, D and F where I slept for the night, E extra distance to get up to 100 miles.
Route day 2

Some extra detours along the way made up the difference in distance.
