Hey Flash: We're probably neigbours. I'm in the west island.
I rode the Cabot trail in 2008, clockwise, then went back in 2009 and did it counter clockwise. You have to do it both directions. It's just as good the second time. Second year we had great weather. We also rode down the east coast of Nova Scotia.
This year we did the Blue Ridge Parkway, down to Deals Gap. Another fantastic ride. Going to N.H. this weekend, check out the turning of the leaves. Hope it stops raining, we're going anyways.
