This ride is entitled, “Bishopville – Sunken Lake”. Link to the route is https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18126399
The ride will assemble at the parking lot near the waterfront Tim Horton’s in Windsor – park at the far end of the parking lot nearest the highway, out of the way as this area gets busy later in the day.
Departure time is 10AM.
The ride will head out across the Avon River to the Bog Road, then up the Bishopville Road on a long gradual winding climb that follows a pretty brook amongst colourful hardwood trees. There is a short stretch of dirt road on this stretch. Once the pavement resumes, the route heads west on Davison Street to cross over the Lumsden Pond and on to Sunken Lake, which is a pretty cottage community. (there’s another short stretch of dirt road around the lake). After a screaming descent into the Gaspereau Valley at White Rock, the route follows the beautiful Gaspereau Valley past the vineyards and farm fields to Avonport and Hantsport and back to Windsor again. There’s a distinct possibility of a post-ride beverage at the Spitfire Arms too.
As I will be out of town this weekend, your ride leader will be Micheline McWhirter, who promises to keep the pace comfortable and casual. C’mon out!
