Well here is another weekend ride, and perfect weather other than for 30 minutes of rain or so.
This time it's on the Island of Cape Breton where I started by visiting the Fort of Louisbourg. I was impressed by the size and the state of reconstruction of the fort. It seems like it is in the middle of nowhere but 300 years ago it was important and in the 60-70's they rebuilt it and now it is a National Historic site.
On Sunday I started in Sydney, NS and rode to the Cabot Trail, the roads are awesome. Most of the main trail is brand new asphalt or a year or so old, the curves and hills are great and the photo opportunities numerous. I took the side roads as well as I had the time and really enjoyed some of the out of the way corners. Lots of motorbikes on the road and all in all there wasn't that much traffic. The trail isn't that long but you can definitely spend time off the road as well as there are lots of hiking trails.
I will probably head back there in the fall for a longer camping trip.
And here are a few pics to take a look at.
Moon Dust Gray Versys, with lots of farkles.
P.S. I bought my Versys to support my photography hobby.
