Today is the day for the LBS Gravel Battle Part Deux.
130.6km with 1439m of climbing through the back routes north of Shawville here. Only 5km of pavement!
Art Brûlant was the staging point for the cyclists participating in the ride. A chance to fuel-up with a double espresso before departing. It will also finish here. You can follow the route from the GPS link provided on the Gravel Planet site.
All the best to the riders. Stay safe!
Some of the photos on “Beyond the Back Door” were taken on sections of the route — in various seasons.
