[ This is part three of a three part tour to Greely, Metcalfe and Vernon branches. ]

From Metcalfe branch, I continued along 8th Line Road for the most perfect country ride, enjoying the farms and calm road.

I turned onto

From 8th Line Road, I turned west on Marvelville Road to make my way toward Bank Street, then turned south to ride into Vernon.

The Vernon library branch is housed in a one room schoolhouse, complete with bell, built in 1882. It hasn’t re-opened yet, but I tried my best to peer inside the windows to catch a look at the old classroom-turned-library.

After a quick break, I set my sights on the return trip to Ottawa. I rode out of town on Bank Street, then retraced my route back along Albion Road. I was fully tuckered out upon my return to Westboro, and slightly in disbelief that there’s only one branch remaining on this summer cycling adventure.

Thirty two branches down, 1 to go (!)
