Cabot Trail Rider Revived
During my 2011 Tackle the Trail 325 km ride with Atlantic Cycle Canada, on day two of three, I had very little sleep and a basic breakfast. After climbing French Mountain, and North Mountain I arrived at Neil’s Harbour 100km completely spent. I was all for calling the sag wagon.

I ate some clam chowder and drank two glasses of cold water along with a very large coffee – combined with 45 minutes of rest with my feet up. Then I decided to try getting back on the bike and discovered that I was able to ride the last 25km as if I was just starting my ride. It was a good way to learn the need for constant re-fueling on long challenging rides.
