Englishtown Mussel Fest 2014:
The ENGLISHTOWN MUSSEL FEST is back! Set aside Saturday, June 28th. from 12:00 to 4:30 pm. Ride your bike around St. Anne’s Bay. A full day of activities, run, bike, music, good food, social, etc. organized by the local Community. There’s a 5-10k run that starts at 9:30 am.
Velo Cape Breton St. Ann’s 45 Km Loop Bike Ride:
Cyclists start at noon. The bike ride leaves at noon from the Community Hall in Englishtown for a relaxed jaunt around St. Ann’s Bay (45km) for all levels of riders, or a ride to The Clucking Hen for lunch and return (20km). This is a fundraiser for the Community Hall and registration is only $10.
This ride is open to all. I mean ALL, from experts to novices, singles to families. Come on and get carried along with lots of good people that will make your ride shorter and really a treat! Pit stop along to way to refuel, support vehicle sweeping just in case.
Note: A shorter ride is available to families with young children. How about riding the 2km sandbar, take a break on the beach, throw rocks in the water, continue on the dirt road on the left to the end of Jersey Cove and ride back to the ferry for less than a 10km ride? An adventure the whole family will remember for a long time. Event is Pit supported.
