Pedaling East of Ottawa by Stephen Johnson
This article is very interesting due to the fact that it is informative and has details about the trail and his experience.
Pedaling East of Ottawa, by Stephen Johnson is about the authors cycling trip down a bike path beginning in Prescott-Russell. He goes into detail the surrounding environment along the path and the places he passes by and stops during his 5 hour trek. Some of the places he stops by are the University of Alfred, a short distance away from the path itself, the Larose Forest and Beau’s Microbrewery, where he took a break to hydrate himself with a nice pint of beer.
I was drawn into the article the moment I began to read it. This could be because it is nearby and I am familiar with the locations. It made me think of the outdoors and it makes me feel like biking and getting outside instead of staying in when it’s nice out. Also, I have personally biked on this path a few times myself.
If you are interested in learning about an underrated route to bike, I highly recommend reading this article.
