Day 140: Degilis to Edmundston, New Brunswick
We didn’t plan on such a short day, but a late departure, a time zone change, Jesse having a lot of work to do, us still being unsure of which route to take through New Brunswick and then an intense rain storm all resulted in the decision to call it an early day in Edmunston.
The pathway continued into town, but just before we hit the border there was a lot of road construction, which also resulted in us having to ride on a really rough gravel road. When we returned to the pathway we were near the border, and once crossing the border the path was no longer very good for cycling.
We went to the tourist information in town to ask about two routes – one to Miramichi through the center of the province, and one going through Fredericton and Moncton. Immediately the girl told us we want to go the southern way, because of the road and also because of how barren going through the center is. We did know there wasn’t much if we took the road through the middle, but I thought it would be nice to go along the coast through the Acadian villages from Miramichi to Moncton, but I guess that will have to wait for another trip.
We didn’t find much to explore in town, but it is nice to have a chance to relax!
