Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie



I’m on the fly but just had to post this photo (one of 1113) taken yesterday at the Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie cycling event in Clare, NS. There were upwards of 860 + cyclists, thee divisions. Gran Fondo = 117 km; Medio Fondo = 67 km and the Picolo Fondo at 35km. Cold, windy but glorious day. Will post a collection of photos in my gallery later this week. Love this region of the world!  Head up … next year’s event will be Sept. 23/24. This year’s story will appear in LocalExpress in a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, here’s a story I wrote for them about another event that’s near and dear to my heart: Celtic International Music Festival in Cape Breton … coming up in a few days.

Welcome! This is where I occasionally post a story that's not filed under My Work ... or give a behind-the-scenes commentary (when fit to publish.) You'll also find notices about upcoming workshops, such as memoir or travel writing. Enjoy your visit and come back often. Better yet, subscribe!
