A longer distance easy loop that cruises around the valley bottom taking in several gorgeous lakes and stunning views all around. The views alone make this a fantastic option for cyclists of all skill levels. To make the ride a touch longer and add more sights tack on a loop around Lake Annette or Lac Beauvert.
