This Saturday we have a sweet ride in northern Nova Scotia.
We’re teaming up with a group ride called the “Hippie Dippie Falling Leaves Classic”. This ride departs at 10AM from Tatamagouche.

Because there will be a considerable size group, the organizers have arranged parking at the North Shore Recreation Center, at 30 Blair Avenue. Plan to arrive there by 9:30AM to prep, and ride your bike to the start which is beside the Tatamagouche Brewing Company on Main Street. There is also a 52km shorter option planned.
The 100k option heads south out of town to New Annan then east to The Falls and up the climb to Earltown. We then head north on a long sweet downhill run through East Earltown and Denmark to Brule, then along the coast to River John. The route then heads south again up to West Branch River John and west to East Earltown again, and reprises the ride through Denmark to Upper River John Road and back to Tatamagouche again. There will be three rest stops along this route arranged by the organizers.
This should be a fun event – in some of Nova Scotia’s best riding countryside.
