Greenwich/St. Peters Loop

Sunday, August 30: Day Six of our Taste of the Maritimes cycle tour.

Taking a 35 mile looping ride along more of the Prince Edward Island Coastal Drive, we began our day riding a couple of miles to the Greenwich Interpretive Center, where we locked up our bikes to see a movie about the natural heritage of the spit of land on which the Greenwich National Park resides. 603 more words

Saturday, August 29: Riding PEI #2
Today was scheduled to be the longest (mileage) ride of the entire trip: 57 miles. Certainly, there were options for folks who just didn’t feel like cycling that far — but you had to choose your route first thing in the AM, because shorter distances involved shuttles straight from Kindred Spirits. 1,090 more words

The Lookoff – YIKES!

Tuesday, August 26: Day Two of our Taste of the Maritimes bicycle tour.

Today’s was a big ride. We totaled about 35 miles, but we had in our “sights” The Lookoff climb, which we all knew would be a kicker of a crank. 971 more words

Bicycle Tour Beginnings

Monday, August 24: Checked out of our lovely (if somewhat damp) Blomidon Provincial Park site this AM early, so we could get to Sue’s home when we’d told her we’d be there, to park Roomba for a while. 607 more words
