Almonte Gravel Express

The Almonte Gravel Express is a 90% gravel route on the edge of the Lanark Highlands near Almonte, Ontario. With tons of gravel roads, unmaintained roads, ATV trails, hydro-cut and some singletrack, this route is perfect for those looking to get out for a one-day ride, stay off the pavement as much as possible and have a good ‘ole time in a beautiful piece of the Ottawa Valley. This route is the perfect mini-adventure as it has all the key aspects to a quality bikepacking route such as the Canadian Shield routes.

This route was developed by Chris Panasky, creator of the Bike Tour Adventures Podcast.
