Witless Bay Line, Early Autumn

The weather here is still holding good. I got an unanticipated 100 km ride in yesterday - Bay Bulls, Witless Bay Line, Holyrood, Conception Bay Highway, Topsail Road, home. It was sunny throughout, with ideal temperatures. There was a bit of a headwind on the last third of the Witless Bay Line, but by then I needed the challenge. The views over the barrens were taking my mind off the effort (and everything else) anyway - the little deep blue ponds receeding into the distance, each one poised upon and punctuating it's own discrete terrace - a study in horizontals. I never cross this section without feeling absolutely euphoric at some point! It's a great section to ride alone. But it's 28 kilometers of emptiness before you hit Holyrood, so fill up your bottle in Bay Bulls.

Here's the route map:
