Jaro's ride to Port Louis and Koenig......


Today was only the second time I rode my bike through the capital of Mauritius, Port Louis.
Moreover, thanks to my riding partner Quincy, it was a bit of an adventure that I would never have attempted myself - we rode straight down the main highway into downtown Port Louis.
Try that in Montreal....


Lots of slow traffic on the way into downtown, but cleared up on the way out, continuing north.  Very nice country roads took us back by way of route B20 and Congomah (which is west of the Nicoliere reservoir), then Camp Thorel, Quartier Militaire, Phoenix and Rose Hill.  Some rain along the way, but back to sunshine again in Albion.


With the fleur-de-lys logo, one might be tempted to think this jersey is from a Quebec club.
In fact, PLMCC stands for Port Louis Municipal Cycling Club, based here in Mauritius.  Thanks very much Quincy !!
