600k on June 21/22

Hi all, ok, here we go again... next weekend's ride is our second-biggest of the year, our 600k brevet.

This ride is entitled, "Noel - Parrsboro".  It will assemble at the Armdale Roundabout to depart at 06:00 on Saturday.

Link to the route is

This course will be kind of fun.  We'll ride up to Brooklyn then follow the entirety of the Noel Shore - looking across the Bay of Fundy at the other side thinking, we'll be over there in a few hours.  Then up to Truro and follow the northern shoreline of the Bay of Fundy all the way to Parrsboro, looking across the Bay thinking, we were just over there a couple of hours ago...  Then north from Parrsboro to Southampton and Collingwood to Oxford, where we'll overnight at a motel.  Then up bright and early on Sunday morning to ride to Pugwash and Wallace, and on to Nuttby and Truro and Upper Musquodoboit then follow the Joe Howe route back into the city.  Just like that!

I've reserved a couple of rooms in Oxford at the Parkview Motel. Please let me know of your intention to ride the 600 by Friday June 20th so I can prepare brevet cards for you.

For those interested in a slightly shorter ride, all are certainly welcome to join us at the start and ride with us to Brooklyn, then peel off to Rawdon and back (160km) or continue with us from Brooklyn to Noel then head south to the city (200k).

Looking forward to an excellent 600!
