Melissa Grey is the newly appointed Science & Education Coordinator at the Joggins Fossil Centre. Following some discussions on our Sunday morning rides, Melissa has been looking into routes for biking to Joggins this Fall. The Centre closes at the end of October.
Melissa usually goes straight from Maccan (there’s a fairly large pull out just before the #242 to park cars) to Joggins – a 19km ride one-way. Most of the road is freshly paved and nice to ride. Longer rides from Maccan could include Lower Maccan – River Hebert – Minudie – Joggins (about 44km 1 way) or Maccan – River Hebert – Minudie – Joggins (38km 1 way). There are lots of options. Going through Minudie would be lovely.
So, if a group of cyclists would like to stop in at the Centre, they have toilets, a cafe, and a water fountain. Melissa can also coordinate a special group rate ($5 per person) to people who’d like to check out the gallery. The scenery is really quite lovely here and they have picnic tables outside for people to use and enjoy the view.
If you’re interested in doing a group either to Joggins, Sackville-Joggins return, or a ride from and returning to the Centre, please add your comments below. Put in your preferred dates or day of the week.
