Just found a near perfect two hour route for my evenings after work at Cape Enrage. Started at the Shire campground on route 915 in New Horton, NB. Worked my way South West through twisty bayside hills and past Dennis Beach at low tide. A few kilometers past Dennis Beach, I went right on the Shortcut Road and then to right on Route 114. The section of Route 114 between Alma and Riverside-Albert is flat, extremely quick, and nicely balanced out the hills at the beginning of the ride.
I’ve always been a big fan of the scenery of the cow and horse filled grazing fields that surround the Shepody River in Riveside-Albert. As I turned right in Riverside-Albert, and back on toRoute 915, it was wonderful to go through this patch of Harvey known as Derry Corner as it and Shepody Mountain in the background were quickly being enveloped by fog.
