Join us for The Adrian Campbell Ride – a casual fun ride with a free will offering leaving from ‘the farm’ on the Newcomb Branch Road near Canning. This year we will have two Scholarship Recipients and, as in the past, they will lead out the ride with Adrian’s sons Jackson, Ryder, and AJ.

Enjoy live music and a post ride BBQ/craft beer and local apple cider at the farm; mechanical support vehicle and pre-ride Gatorade fill-up. The ride is free of charge – but we would love to accept your donation of any denomination to help cover expenses of the ride and help with the scholarship fund.

The Rides:

This year features three main routes: an eastern loop of 32 km, a western loop of 77 km and a scenic 88 km gravel grinder route.

The eastern loop follows along parts of previous years’ routes along dykeland and orchards and has several options to shorten the distance (turning on Church St. will make this a 26 km route; turning on Canard St., a 20 km route; and turning on Saxon St., a family friendly 15 km). Similarly, the 77 km loop could be shortened to 61 km (by turning left at Long Pt road) or 54 km) by turning left onto Rt 360 toward Berwick). Of course there is also the possibility of combining the two loops into a more epic century plus (105 km) “figure 8” through the Valley floor.

The gravel grinder ride will involve climbing over North Mountain and dropping down to ride along the Fundy coast before working our way back via as many dirt roads as we can find. This ride is most appropriate for Cross or Grinder bikes with at least 30c tires.

Put it on your calendar. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!
