Grand Fondo, Baie Sainte-Marie

I am so delighted to have been able to take part in the Grand Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie; One of the most well-organized cycling events in Nova Scotia!

They had over 1,000 participants and more than two-hundred wonderful volunteers.

My husband and I, who did the 67 km, and every cyclist, appreciated the cheering with the Acadian flags, the cowbells and the encouragements by the locals along the route — Especially when we were fighting a strong head-wind.

All ages were out in their driveways, including the beautiful one-year-old Kasynn.

I highly recommend this cycling event at Baie Sainte-Marie; It is great for all ages and skill levels (Piccolo 35 km, Medio 67 km, Mezzo 85.5 km, Gran 118 km & Super 161 km).

I now have a better appreciation for the beauty of the Clare-Digby riding, and the warmth and hospitality that my colleague Gordon Wilson speaks of so proudly!
