Hi all, this Saturday we have a gem of a ride, in the Annapolis Valley.
This ride is entitled, “Hall’s Harbour”, but it’s a lot more than that.
We’ll assemble in the parking area just north of the Port Pub Bistro in Port Williams – please don’t park beside the Pub as it gets busy there later in the day, park further north up the street. Departure time is 10AM.
Link to the route is https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18126480. Distance is 100km.
We’ll follow the shoreline past Starr’s Point and Canard toward Canning, then head toward Blomidon, and climb the South Mountain on Stewart Mountain Road up to the Lookoff. After a stop to admire the view, we continue on toward Halls Harbour on Brow of Mountain Road, and enjoy the spectacular view out over the Bay of Fundy as we descend down into Hall’s Harbour (unlike the views on the 600 earlier this year…) We’ll stop for a sit-down lunch at the lobster pound takeout at Hall’s Harbour then follow Brow of Mountain again to the descent at Black Rock Road. Once back in the Valley, we wander on quiet backroads past Keddy’s Corner and Chipman’s Corner back to Port Williams, where there is a distinct possibility of a post ride beer at the pub.
Forecast is for cool and clear, nice autumn weather. Expect to see a good crowd out for this one!
