Finally, after two Summers (along with my good friend Luc), I was able to get away for a multi-day motorcycle ride! The Summer of 2019 was a washout for me as I was recovering from a rather serious cycling accident and last Summer, a multi-day motorcycle trip was hampered by lockdowns and the Covid-19 pandemic.
Recently, Luc and I met to discuss a 3 day ride and decided that we would stay in our home province of New Brunswick and explore the beauty of our own region (and check out local craft breweries). The plan was to ride a 1500 kilometre loop around New Brunswick. This loop included portions of the River Valley Scenic Drive, the Appalachian Range Route, the Acadian Coastal Drive and the Fundy Coastal Drive.

Our plan was to wait for a 3 day window of good weather before hitting the road. It took about a week to receive that forecast and once we had it, we met at the Trailway Brewing Company in Fredericton to finalize plans for the ride.
