The forecast for Montreal this weekend is for hot, sunny, and somewhat humid weather, the first really hot spell this summer. Not that I am complaining as I don't like the heat!!! I had planned to use the good weather to take an overnight jaunt out to Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, and had even made a motel reservation.
Unfortunately, I subsequently realised that I had lent my saddle bags to my parents for their trip around the Lac-St-Jean! I experiemented with bungy cording a small duffle bag or a backpack to the rear rack. This produce disappointing results, so I have cancelled the expedition.
On the plus side, there is a bike-in event taking place on the Lachine canal this Saturday that I would have otherwise missed.
