Over 100 km this weekend #cycling

What an amazing weekend in Saint John! The weather was beautiful and lots of summer activities were enjoyed including Saturday’s Kingston Farmer’s market, Sunday Queen’s Square Farmer’s market, the “Loyalist Uptown Crit” bike race (as a spectator) and my first annual plant swap.

The highlight of the weekend was a 90.2 km bike ride (map of our route below). It was a little overcast Saturday morning (so not too hot) and the little wind there was was at our back for the longest leg of the ride through “Long Reach”. As you can see we faced our share of climbs on the Peninsula  (the green line on the top image) but all and all it was a great ride. Our new stretch goal is a 135 km ride which will include 3 ferry rides: the Romeo & Juliet, the Belleisle and the Evendale. Will likely be September before we tackle that one.
