Q: Why “The Whole Lobster Roll”? A: The Whole Lobster Roll was created by MTBM for those who want to devour all the trails in Minto in one day. A culinary nod to Moab’s mecca of MTB trails and “The Whole Enchilada”. The north east coast equivalent is “The Lobster Roll”. It’s decadent, smooth, a little crunchy, and can bite you if you get distracted by the wonder of its creation.

While I’m certainly gutted that the Coal Miner’s Lung 60k race is no longer happening in Minto this would be a great ‘consolation’ event!
You can pick your poison and there’ll be people to ride with.
For those who haven’t ridden Minto, it’s the sweetest singletrack network in Atl Canada IMO. Flowy, hardpacked, tech of various levels, lots of demanding up and down- and that 45km of trail listed is without touching your tracks. Hit it in reverse the next day and you’ve got 90k of unique singletrack. Go see why riders like Pendral and L’esperance call it “heaven” and “amazing.”

Too bad it conflicts with the festival at Sugarloaf.

Sounds awesome. For some reason I thought it was up by Mirimichi but nope. Getting over a 3 hour drive on google. ugh

Book a site at tiny trails and trust those you know when they talk so highly of the trail system. :wink:

I just had a visit with Alicia and Cory at Tiny Trails last night. Great little place. Awesome trails! @streetgang i came out at Magnetic hill. Took the back way but faster going in when travelling from Halifax. As it was my fastest route out today. The locals directed me.
