MTB Atlantic - Fundy Summit

Who is going for the MTB Atlantic Summit? Anyone plan on riding Fundy or Hillsborough on the 6th?

Wish I could, alas, must work.

@rolls, @jetter and myself will be there representing ecmtb.

We do not know where or when we are riding. I think the plan is to feel it out and jump on what ever group ride that suits our fancy.

I am attending with MRWA and I may ride Hillsborough on the way home on Sunday Morning.

Ok. I’ve been invited and may go up after Elgin, crash in Moncton and Ride Hillsborough in the AM depending. I’d assume it’s a nightmare to find somewhere in Fundy.

Last time I used Air BnB but @Mattcasey303 and I apparently let too many mosquitos in when we left and are banned from that spot.

I booked a spot in the Fundy Highlands Motel. I’d try there. Just close the screen door behind you😉.

This is why I want a van so badly.

But if you’d like company Sunday let me know. If I end up staying I’d rather ride there than Fundy. :tipping_hand_man:

Last I checked there were still some otentiks available in Fundy NP.

We had some interesting talks thursday and today.

I think Saturday is going to be a blast.

Fyi… you get a nice beer mug and stickers with the $15 road trip fee so def worth it.

I won the give away, but Im guessing after Elgin I’ll be tired and in need of a shower haha. Likely going to motor back to Truro and get a locals ride going at Wentworth or Gore. I’m very undecided, but it will be glad to hear a summary at some point!

That pump track is epic. Made a point to bring it up many times at the Railyard consultation.
