Petit train du nord
« on: September 28, 2010, 08:28:34 »
Looking for a caching partner to cycle with me on PetitTraindu Nord as soon as there is a window of 3-4 days of sunshine.  I intend to start at SteAgathedesMonts and cycle to St.Jerome (49 km).  Then if all goes well, I'll cycle north to Labelle (56 km).   Then it may depend on how tired I am.   Any takers?

I still need to ride the St. Agathe to St Jerome section! If that first day was on a Saturday or Sunday.....

I would like very much to do Le Petit Train.

Most of my weekends are free for caching.

According to the Weather Network, it will be mostly sunny this weekend, Oct 2 and 3, but cool, with high temperatures of 10 to 12 degrees.

I'm in. My new paniers need a test run.

It starts  with Km 1 Le P'tit train du nord by flag_43 (GC1BNH1), http://coord.info/GC1BNH1, in St. Jerome Quebec and goes north to Mont Laurier.



Great railtrail, nice caches, good times...

When you narrow down the date, I will know if I can attend.  Until then it's just a maybe.

Definitely interested! Hopefully there will be no scouts activity preventing me from taking part. :-[  It's been far too long since I've been out with the mob!!!  :'( :'(

I am also up for another run along the Petit Train du Nord.  All clear so far except Thanksgiving weekend.

I intend to start at SteAgathedesMonts and cycle to St.Jerome (49 km).  Then if all goes well, I'll cycle north to Labelle (56 km). 

It is a very nice trail, I highly recommend it. I won't have time to visit here again this year myself though.

I'm a bit puzzled by your plan.  You say you want to go from Ste-Agathe to St-Jerome (going South), then from Ste-Agathe to Labelle (going North)... but you don't say how you are planning to get back to Ste-Agathe between those two segments.

It is really simpler to pick a direction and do the entire trail in that direction.  North to South is usually preferred, less climbing that way  :)

Anyway, Have fun on the trail! ;D
