Maps are promised. The lap for Saturday’s races is super fun and welcoming for newer riders. No reason not to give it a try. Sundays lap is has a great mix that will be both a challenge ad good time!

I’ve got a good head start on the course marking and should have it all wrapped up tomorrow. I think you can follow the arrows around the big lap right now but the turn off’s for the shorter courses are not up yet.

For any one looking for a guided ride I’ll be at the parking lot for 11:00 and would be glad to show you around the site.

If you needed any more motivation to come out here it is!


The Canadian championships coming here will hopefully be great for cycling throughout Atlantic Canada. With the boosted attention from the media and sports organizations hopefully we can increase the awareness of cycling and its potential here in the maritimes and will see increased funding and infrastructure investment to support cycling.
