As for ride routes, if there are GPS files, I would like to see if some hybrid routes are feasible, i.e., Hartland plus some other covered bridges I found plus St. Andrews. Possibly Hopewell (sticky buns in Alma of course!) and a spin through St. Martins on the way back, or Magnetic Hill rideby (only for the view looking back on Moncton).... just some ideas.
Hey there, Ray. Hybrid routes ? There are only 2 roads in each direction out of Fredericton so there are no GPS files. That's not to say there WON'T be; just none yet
I think I already suggested a run to Hartland and then to St Andrews if you want a long day. We can also do a little detour to the McAdam Train Station on the St. Andrews run.
There are lots of covered bridges in NB but I respectfully suggest ... for the most part, they're on very rural roads (which is fine if you're out to explore) and often (I believe) they're on dirt roads. Since we can pound on a lot of miles just riding the proposed routes, I'm thinking we should stick to the Hartland Covered Bridge and the covered bridges in St Martins which can be captured together in the same photo
View of Moncton from Magnetic Hill ? Really ? I'll defer to you, the tourist and guest in our province, but ...I don't think you can see Moncton from Magnetic Hill ? I'd be giving that a pass but ....how about we discuss it over a pop ?
By hybrid, I thought I might make a combination route, however, looking at the map again and your explanation... I think you are correct about staying with the Hartland/St. Andrews proposal. As for the other bridges, probably best viewed on this website http://summerville-n...CoveredBridges/
As for Magnetic Hill, perhaps my powers of recollection from 3 years ago aren't what they used to be and I will defer to local knowledge. Probably have to be at night on a side road up a bit further as I recall... Once again you are right, it's not worthwhile or all that exciting.
If anyone wants to collaborate on GPS files, I'm willing to help.
