Rideau Lakes Prep – Kanata Lakes to Fitzroy Harbour

It was an almost perfect day for riding – light winds and cool but comfortable temperatures. This was the first group ride of the year, with a total of six of us to take advantage of the nice weather.

This is a route I’ve not ridden before. My previous trip to Fitzroy took the roads through Carp and Kinburn. The roads were decent and very quiet – perfect for an easy ride. It also gave me some insight into March Valley Road as I’ve been eyeing it as a possible extension for my ride into work.

All-in-all, it was another good session to get ready for the long ride to Kingston and back. Again, I need to remember to eat a bit more and earlier and to stretch out my shoulders and back before they get too sore. I’ll be ready for Rideau Lakes, but only just.
