48km hilly road biking today with Marc-Antoine Laporte at St-Michel de Wentworth followed by 2 hours of mountain biking with Hal Myers preparing for Coast to Coast Mountain Biking across Scotland in August. Laurentians, Quebec.
70 km biking around hilly @Lac-des-Seize Iles in 30 degree with dear old friend Elaine Kitteridge from Toronto training for mountain biking in Scotland.

Pretty rough terrain climbing and descending trails over trees, rocks, roots, tall grass, streams and every other obstacle.
