Gabarus to Fourchu Picnic & Poker Run
Time & Location
About The Event
Are you looking for a low traffic ride (almost no traffic here), paved roads, flat roads, a fresh breeze from the ocean? You will get all of that on this ride, plus a light lunch in Fourchu Bay with a view of the ocean ( sorry, no restaurants there) and lots of parking.
Meet at the breakwater in Gabarus in time to get ready to start the ride at 10:30am, Sunday July 8, 2018. Your ride leader will be Art Spencer.
Cost is $10.00 for Velo Cape Breton members, $15.00 for non-members. Pre-registration is required so the lunches can be prepared.
40km Ride Option: The ride to Fourchu is 20km where a light lunch which will be provided by Cathy MacAulay-Spencer. The return trip will complete the 40km total distance. If you are concerned about doing the full 40km, there is an option to ride with Cathy by car, but spaces are limited, so reserve your seat early at firstname.lastname@example.org.
60km Ride Option: The faster riders will continue to Framboise, another 10km (return 20km) and come back to Fourchu for lunch. If everything goes well, everybody should be together for lunch. After lunch it's 20km to return back to Gabarus.
Poker Run: To make sure you enjoy the ride at its best, there will also be a Poker Run. (It's optional, but a lot of fun). At the start in Gabarus you will receive two cards. On your ride, at a nice lookoff, you will receive another card, another at lunch, and again on the return trip. At the finish the person who has the best poker hand will win a prize. The rules will be explained again at the start of the ride.
