A man and his Spyder… André Couture

Since purchasing my Spyder in 2011, I discovered a hobby and much more, a new passion.

When I mounted my bike, I found places that were unknown to me. Quebec roads are full of beautiful landscapes. A winding path, a curve and a flowing river appears.

Each year during summer time, Josée and I go on vacation. Gaspésie, Lac St- Jean and Maggie Valley are among the destinations that we discovered through our Spyder.

Last summer, it was a first for me, who is used to run and plan everything even during the holidays; we took the bare minimum of clothing and went on an adventure for a period of ten days, without any reservations, on the U.S. east coast. Quite an adjustment for me but I liked it, nothing to think about, just letting the road and the landscape unfold before our eyes. Thank you Josée for making me discover the unplanned.

Our first night was at a well-known place for Quebecers, Lake George, beautiful tourist place and very friendly people.

The next day we headed for Springfield, Massachusetts, where we had to stay inside for two days because of the rain, but what better than a hotel with a spa and an indoor pool to relax. After being well rested, we headed to Cape Cod, a favorite destination for many people (important to know, do not arrive on Saturday because it is crowded). Unfortunately for us, the rain was present for the next few days, so we decided to continue our journey.

Next destination by route 3A: Boston. A beautiful city to explore for its architecture and its tourist attractions.

Thereafter, we took Route 1 and 1A along the ocean to get to Ogunquit for one night and we also went to Old Orchard Beach for its beautiful beaches but very cold ocean water. Josée and I liked where we stayed for two days, fresh lobster and seafood await you.

The return home was done in a day. The trip was made only by taking countryside and back roads with a lovely temperature.

With a Spyder, we have a sense of security, comfort and excellent vision which makes for very pleasant journeys and brings a great sense of freedom.
