Marine Drive in October - The Star of Logy Bay

Wow! It's just about the middle of October and I'm still riding in my shorts! Yesterday's outing encompassed St. John's Harbour (as a warm-up) then headed out over the White Hills to Middle Cove. I blogged about it earlier this year, but now I have some snaps! And the climb up Signal Hill is omitted this time.

You'll be riding through the landscape described in The Star of Logy Bay (this recording is from a site maintained by Memorial University - MacEdward Leach and the Songs of Atlantic Canada). Just remember the tribulations of that lovelorn troubadour as you climb up from Outer Cove, and it won't seem nearly as painful! Thanks for the photos Deb, aka photoist1.

Total distance is about 42 kilometers, which includes two climbs of about 1 kilometer each, and a couple of short steep pitches. You may sweat doing this, but it's certainly not going to kill you!

Here's the route map:
