What Kinda Bike Is That?

Chris, I don't know why this is, but I always exit Maine via Fort Kent, then ride Rt 232 up to Rt 234 and out to Rt 132 at Grand Metis. There is a campground in Matane that I stay at. I ride the north shore of the Gaspé in a clockwise fashion. When in Parc Forillon, I camp at the tip, Cap-Bon-Ami. There are the best views of the peninsula from there.
Make a point to stop at the bakery in Percé.
I travel down through New Brunswick, following the roads that are right along the border of Maine and NB.
I can make it home from Cap-Bon-Ami in a day.
Just to give you some tidbits.
If you don't mind, this trip of yours may work out for me. Would you mind some company?
