This is the Lite versions of these documents. The original, personal versions of these accounts include much material, photos, maps, websites, etc., taken from other people's sources. These have, for the most part, been removed from the copies cited below. In some cases, this may result in strange textual references (Such as: As you can see in the map above...)
(Defined as Mercier to Jacques Cartier Bridges & West)
Rides to the South Shore have been relatively sparse. The most frequent rides have been along the Seaway Causeways, either from St. Lambert to the Champlain Bridge, or from the latter to the Ste. Catherine Locks. The South Shore has served as the gateway for rides off to Plattsburgh, Burlington, New York, and Magog. Most rides to the South Shore have been well-documented. The area of most notable change has been along Route 116. Even as late as 2001, the South Shore offered surprises, as when I stumbled upon the St. Jacques river.
