Spending 3 weeks at our new summer home in the historic resort town of Saint Andrews by-the-sea, New Brunswick (Atlantic Canada). What I’ve come to observe… there are hills here too! and the map of one our favourite 25 km cycling route looks like a rocket ship!
On Thanksgiving Monday hubby and I set out to tour the city. It just happened that our route took us by (or at least very near) much of our area’s energy installations. Our 75 kilometre ride took us west to the Coleson Cove power generating station. Next we headed east across the causeway and by the East Saint John Marine Terminal. We then rode by the Irving Refinery on our way out to Red Head. We didn’t quite make it out to the Canaport Liquid Natural Gas Terminal before heading back home. It was a beautiful fall day!
Got a break from the freezing temps. The sun came out and dried the roads enough for us to get out for a short ride. I was dying to try out my new Garmin Edge 200 that “Santa” brought me. I’m very excited to have better stats and my own cool route maps. (I’ve used my hubby’s maps in the past). 11 km down….2,989 km to go!
Spent a lovely day with friends at their cottage near Cap Pelee, New Brunswick. Went for a ride on Saturday afternoon in the scorching 30+ Celcius (90+ F) heat. The breeze off the water was welcome relief as was the ice cold Moose Light Lime at L’Aboiteau Restaurant on the wharf. The evening was idealic just soaking in the dog days of summer with a beautiful sunset and roaring campfire.
Went out for a cheap 50 km (not a lot of hills) with a stop on the Saint John waterfront for some hydration. Took advantage of some of the new dedicated bike lanes in and around Saint John. Saw some dear friends, heard some great bands and enjoyed the day…even had a quick chat with mayor Mel!
