Timberlea to Chester NS – 69 km

It was suppose to rain today but as luck would have it it turned into a nice sunny day for my trip further down the coast.

I had decided to use the trails all day to get here and largely it worked out with a few minor hiccups, well it wouldn’t be right I didn’t get some problems it would make it look to easy.

I must confess even when blackbetty was fully loaded I exceeded the  speed limit disgraceful behaviour. I always pass people with a trusty ring of my bell thou.

My first stop was for my second breakfast at a cafe recommended by Dale yes you were right lovely cafe and had to pop into bike shop to get another adapter for pumping up my tyres as I seem to have lost mine.

As I sat outside I was surrounded by fellow bikers so we sat and chatted about my journey and I stay for over a hour. But hey I’m on no schedule more of ill get there when I get Theresa long as it s before dark.

Very well named I thought and lovely coffee yes I sometimes drink coffee. Also the breakfast roll wasn’t bad either.

Even has a railway carriage outside.

More views from the trail


Occasionally views of the coves and the coast line which was nice. Onward I went until I came to the last 11 km or so as I crossed over hwy 3  I went about another4 km to see a sign maintenance on the trail up ahead cyclist may want to take hwy3 . After all this travelling you would think I’d learn but! I Hate,as do most cyclists doubling back so I thought how bad would it be as the notice only said might like to so on I pushed. Good grief there was rocks all sort of debris on the trail I was bouncing all over the place. Then  I came across a digger and truck but I managed to squeeze passed and this was for about 3/4 km but the old gal and I made it safely through. Blackbetty very dusty me eaten alive by the bugs so note to myself on my return to Halifax use the road you fool.

Only a little bit of what I went over the rest of the time I was just trying to stop falling off and causing myself injury.

I finally reached Chester  and tomorrow I’m heading towards Lunenburg where I’m going to have a look around for the next 4 days. So hopefully a shorter day tomorrow.
