200k on Saturday September 16th

posted Sep 11, 2017, 4:26 PM by Mark Beaver
Hi all, this weekend we have our final 200km brevet of the season.

This ride starts at the Masstown Market in Masstown, northwest of Truro off Highway 2.

Link to the route is

The ride departs at 8AM.

We'll head out toward Parrsboro on Route 2 along the Economy shoreline of the Bay of Fundy, past the highest measured tides in the world.  It's gently rolling countryside until the speedbump of Economy Mountain and a sweet descent into Five Islands; thereafter rolling terrain to Parrsboro.  After a lunch stop there, we had north on a fairly gentle ride up the Halfway River Valley to Southampton, then a climb up to Wyndham Hill, where, if you look behind you, you'll be able to see the mountains of Fundy National Park in New Brunswick in the distance.  After a sweet descent down to Collingwood and another store stop, the route heads east through forested gently rolling terrain to the Wentworth Valley, with one final climb and descent over Folly Mountain back to Masstown.

If you plan to ride this brevet, please notify me by email before Friday afternoon of your intention to participate.

If you wish to earn a medal for this ride, bring $15 cash with you.

In fact, this is your last opportunity to order medals for any of the earlier brevet rides you have completed this year; if you didn't order and pay for medals beforehand, and wish to get them, let me know by the weekend.
