There's two versions of this route, and this one takes a bit more road than ideal... check out my 2022 fall ride which has a more scenic route.
I let it rip tooo hard and one of my tubes exploded lol - fixed my first flat in the middle of the woods, while mosquitoes ate me. made it to Champlain just in time for sunset, made it all worth it!
Wakefield is a tiny village in Québec. 40KM away from downtown Ottawa, this is a day-long ride that won't disappoint.
The best route by far is the Chelsea Community Trail. Get yourself to Chelsea through Gatineau Park. This route will help you avoid Route 105. Instead, you'll ride by the river almost the whole way.
This used to be an old train route that's been adapted into a trail. Perfectly flat gravel!
🚗 Driving? There is parking at Chelsea CLSC, located at 490 Route 105.
