Did someone say hills? This one’s got lots of them and it isn’t for the squeamish. The second half is easier though and you’ll get a break as we return on the Waterfront Trail. I overheard talk at the Social last evening that this ride is not as hard as the Rice Lake Century ride (we will reschedule that one for August or September). It’s actually quite a pleasant ride, and we see some new scenery.
In Orono there’s a nice restaurant called the Firehall Bistro where we can grab a bite to eat or just re-load drink bottles.
For anyone wanting to do a shorter ride, or if the forecast is not favourable, simply ride only as far west as Osaca. Turn south on county road 65 and weave your way south to meet up with the route again on the Waterfront Trail. Approx. 60km
