Nova Scotia in early September

Hi there, friends from the North! I'll be riding from Long Island NY up to Nova Scotia on Sept 3 for a few days of sightseeing and camping. If anyone is interested in joining up for part of my (projected) 10 day trip, you'd be most welcome.

And if anyone with experience has advice on what the highlights of such an adventure might be, please share. I know there's tons of places to ride, but I intend to spend a good portion on Cape Breton. I'd rather not rush a good thing and try to see everything. That said, I'm open to exploring all suggestions!

Thanks,
Tom

I'll be departing solo Long Island Sept 2 or 3, getting me to NS the 4th. Plan to stay until the 11th, be home the 12th. My wife and friends will be tending the home fires.

Cape Breton is one of the most beautiful places in Canada, and the side trip to Meat Cove on the north coast is, in my humble opinion, the jewel in the crown. Absolutely not to be missed.

Millwright, I know NJBill was going up, and now that you mention it, it would be a good idea to hear about his trip. I was going to go to NEVA but life got in the way this year. Hence my desire to make up for it with a trip 3 or 4 times as long!

Chef, Meat Cove is at the top of my list of places to go. I may pitch my tent and stay awhile.

I agree, 100%. I was at Meat Cove on Aug.8th. Beauty spot! I would try and book ahead for a camping spot or cabin. Great overnight place to stay.
