In my University years, I worked summer job in the town of Bathurst, NB, at Noranda Mines. I did not have a car back then, and so cycling was the only means of transportation around town.

Since graduation, I vacationed in NS/PEI/NB/Gaspe many times before and had driven up the Cobat Trail, and enjoyed the lobster. I enjoyed being Moses in NB, walking on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean.

Never been to NFLD before - any Newfie jokes?

I can call myself a part time Maritimer.

I'm originally from St. John's, but I've lived in Toronto for about 6 years. Does that count?

Not originally from PEI but my Mom was so I've spent all of my summers on the Island. As a child I would go from the day after school let out until the day before it started again. As an adult I get up there for 2-3 weeks each summer or fall. Still love the Island.

Did anyone cycle "Cycle The Capes... The First Annual North Cape Coastal Ride" in September? I cycled the first day but because of family commitments couldn't make it for day 2.

What is that Chocolate town on the NB/USA border? I'd be interested in a run between there (during the chocolate Festival) and Truro in NS during a maximum tide .

"Canada's Chocolate Town" is St. Stephen, New Brunswick. At the Calais, ME/St. Stephen, NB border. I live near Hershey, PA but as many times as I've driven though St. Stephen I haven't stopped to compare chocolate!

Just to keep it going, originally from B.C. (Victoria), now primarily SW Ontario but spend most of the summer in NB (St Martins), so consider myself (with permission) an honourary part-time Maritimer -- with any luck, will become full-time at some point!
