Ride on Saturday October 15th

posted Oct 11, 2016, 6:13 PM by Mark Beaver

Hi folks, this weekend we have a scenic ride in Hants County to enjoy the autumn leaves. This ride is entitled, "East Gore - Riverside".

Link to the route is https://ridewithgps.com/routes/11751853

We'll assemble in the usual location in Elmsdale, at the parking lot of the Sobey's mall at Exit 8 off Highway 102. Please park vehicles at the north end of the parking lot away from the busy Tim Horton's and Sobeys. Ride will start at 10AM - distance will be just over 100km.

We'll ride northwest to Nine Mile River and East Gore to Kennetcook, then head east to Lattie's Brook and South Maitland and cross the bridge over the Shubenacadie River. We'll then take the scenic Riverside Road along the riverbank to Fort Ellis and Stewiacke. There will be a couple of km of hardpack dirt road on this stretch. We usually see eagles roosting in the trees on the riverbank near Caddell Rapids.

After a stop at the ubiquitous Tim Horton's in Stewiacke, we'll head south to Shubenacadie and Milford and back to Elmsdale again.

Hope to see a good crowd out on Saturday! October is the best cycling month of the year!
