Route verte #5 St Lawrence valley
Along the provincial bike network in immediate proximity to the city of Trois Rivières, the current segment being alongside the St Lawrence river specifically on the eastern tip of Lac St Pierre.

The route verte in question (in this instance roadway number 5) most often spans lesser travelled country roads revealing pastoral views typical of 19th century Quebec with old country houses and farms typical of the period.

The picture in this instance shows ships at the horizon such ships being typical of the St Lawrence seaway which assures oversees transportation of goods to the heart of the continent.

And if you are curious to know, the tides make it here once in a blue moon presumably followed by the odd whale and the occasional shark (sharks are not to underestimate with their ability to go up rivers a fair distance. In that regard there is documentation on the matter from the turn of the 20th century dwelling on a large beast that would swim up large streams on the eastern seaboard of the US on the outskirts of NYC.)

You look as if you made it to the Atlantic Ocean. Do you plan to cross the bridge on the 55, hand a left at exit 196, right(north) on the 153, left(east) on the 350 and north again into the Mastigouche Prov. Wildlife Reserve for a loop around Grand Lac des iles? Looks like there's good camping in La Mauricie National Park too. Ever checked out the parks?

Checked out some of the parks . There are some good mountain bike runs in some of them. Although I don't tend to want to further investigate...

I lost many pictures. Thus I have to count on what I have posted on the WEB. I did make a Utube video (2 actually to be within the 10 minute deadline ) which is actually a slideshow of 400 images which I posted just to be on the safe side in case I lost some hardware along the way (I'm mostly transient and thus tend to occasionally lose everything I have...)

The following link leads towards the images :

Also, let us not forget that this is a site for images relating to mountain bikes such bikes best being used in rough terrain ! I tend to be some ill equipped cross country affecionado that figures that a mountain bike is essential out of town since it can be used on any road...

It's not complex, just go on top of the page, click "create object", choose "album", and you just have to include all of the pics you posted on MBPost from the beginning.
You could also create pages to present a bit those magnificent areas in Quebec (about which you wrote so far only in picture legends). That would be great to read !

That I will do . It will permit me to post more representative imagery here. With albums I can sort out the images in accordance to location making it easier for others to track the individual images in the proper context being part of a group.....

Thanks for the advice ! I'm O.K. as long as I can locate my old images...
