The Rideau Trail is a 305km hiking trail that was developed back in 1971. Meant for anything but biking, Chris and I decided to bike it. Not one of our better ideas but it definitely created some long lasting memories and tested our endurance.
There are a dozen ways to get from Ottawa to Kingston on a road bike and they all take you through small picturesque towns. Not a particularly tough trip is you go in a group of bikers where one can draft off your fellow riders, talk to them and speed along on your feather light road bike with your ultra thin tires. A different story when you are a steel framed mountain bike with knobby tires.
