Marine Drive Hills
Recommended ride: Finally - a ride that didn't require extra clothes! I even got a bit of a sunburn on my upper arms. I went out to Fort Amherst then back along Harbour Drive to warm up. I got delayed a bit by the Canada Day parade, but soon got up to speed and headed out to Middle Cove via The Gut and White Hills Road. Several small groups in full kit passed me going the other way. The climb out of Outer Cove was hot, but it went well. I crawled up Signal Hill in my granny gear at the end. There was a small pod of five humpbacks cavorting off Cuckold's Cove Head and tons of people up on the Hill watching them. Click here for the map.
