On Saturday this week the club ride is entitled, "Brooklyn - Stanley".  This ride
will assemble at the carpool parking lot at Exit 4 off Highway 101 at St
Croix.  Take the exit off the highway and turn left at the stop sign,
and proceed a couple hundred meters to the carpool parking lot near the

Scheduled departure time is *10AM*.  Scheduled distance is 85km.
Cue sheets will be distributed at the start.

We will head north towards Brooklyn and Burlington, then toward Stanley
and Rawdon.  The route is mostly inland, away from cold sea breezes.
The ride will regroup a couple of times and there is a store at South
Rawdon but bring along some pocket food as there are not a lot of other
stores on the loop.

We encourage carpooling, if you can offer a ride or need a ride, hit
"reply all" and let each other know.

I recommend that all riders carry a Nova Scotia provincial highway map
with them on all rides.  Personally, I took a highway map and cut out
the central part of the province in a shape such that when I folded it
in two, it would fit into a Ziploc bag.  It's always in my kit - I'd
encourage you to do the same.  The maps from Google aren't particularly
clear if you want to figure out where you went wrong...

I will be working this Saturday so Dave Ross will be your ride leader.
