Road Quality

We are planning to tour the island in Aug 2012. Have been around the trail many times and have seen the recent repaving of these roads. we were planning our 4th day riding from Baddeck to Auld's cove. Can you tell me the road conditions and quality of the scenery along the southern coast. Planning on stopping in Louisburg then down thru Gabarus Lake. Any thoughts?

1. Re: Road Quality

You are in Halifax and talking about roads and riding , are you on bicycles/ Baddeck To Aulds Cove is a 100 series highway so it is always pretty good as you have a wider lane and a bit more of a paved shoulder .

Louis , Gabarus is more of the 200 and 300 series, so a bit narrower, but don't know their condition . Call a motel or B&B in Louisburg and ask them or try to find some one at Velo Cape Breton
