Lightbulb V-Strom Off-road ride from Ottawa to Quebec's mountains

Saturday, June 20

We will be going on a ride in the area around Lac Simon/Lac Gagnon. Total distance ~300km round trip. This will have ~100km gravel/dirt. The road is expected to be rocky and at times wet, but mostly hard bottom. It is suitable for VStroms. I did it a few weeks ago on worn road tires.

Meeting at Tims on Innes Rd in Ottawa at ~8:30, leaving at 9.
It will be a good day, sunny but not too hot.

Route: https://goo.gl/maps/CitkF

Please RSVP.

This is my second time in that region. The trail is excellent. Mountains, lakes, twisties. Huge area to explore. This is part of the Papineu-Labelle natural reserve.

How long does that loop take approximately on a bike? Is the Google Maps timing accurate? I'm headed that way tomorrow - well - to Algonquin Park and then into Gatineau - but looking for some interesting trails too.

I've never seen a motorcycle parked in front of a psychiatrist's office. And that tells me pretty much everything I ever need to know about why I ride.

My Ride: 2012 DL650A Explorer Package, Fox Orange. Mods/Farkles: Scottoiler vSystem, Rox Risers, Adventuretech Mirror Extenders and Sidestand Foot, SW-Motech Over-The-Dash GPS mount.

Plans: Denali-type lighting, orange LED cowling/engine lighting, LED highlight upgrade, and everything I need to ride the Dempster Highway in 2017.

States/Provinces Ridden: NS, NB, QC, ON, ME, NH, MA, VT, NY, PA, DE, MD, DC, VA, WV, NC, TN, KY, GA, OH, IN, IL, IA, NE, CO, UT, AZ, NE, CA, NM, TX, OK, MO.

Just finished a 12,000 km run from Toronto to Monterey and back.
