The Rigaud Wall :: Le mur de Rigaud

Going up Bourget street in Rigaud by car has to be done in second gear as it is very steep and is well known as “the wall” in the cyclist community. The Coupe du monde cycliste féminine de Montréal was held there for the last time in 2005 and was a feast to see. So I decided to park my car just on top of “the wall” and paint the incredible view of the Outaouais River with its fall colours.

En 2005 était la dernière année que la Coupe du monde cycliste féminine de Montréal se parcourait à Rigaud dans la fameuse montée Bourget, communément appelé Le Mur de Rigaud par les cyclistes de la région. Voici la rivière Outaouais dans la splendeur des couleurs d’automne.
