I accept that this trail is the only way of crossing Eastern Ontario without cycling on roads, but it's not built for road tyres at all. I biked all the way from Ottawa to Montreal on a road bike yesterday and it was a soul-destroying experience. The vast majority of the trail is dense gravel that makes it impossible to exceed 20km/h even in the most friendly areas. Then there are completely unkept stoney areas that have clearly been ravaged by farm machinery. There's also NOTHING in the way of services. Not even water fountains at the pavilions. Ok, this is the country we're talking about and I wasn't expecting shops and cafes along the route...but if you're attempting the whole trail you are definitely going to run out of water. A few fountains does not seem a lot to ask. My day improved massively when I reached Quebec.
