I'm thinking about trying my first Iron Butt ride sometime soon so I'm trying to come up with an interesting route. Living in Halifax leaves me with limited options, so I figured a loop through NB could work... something that isn't an out and back on the TCH... The end goal is 1000mi (1600km) in a day. I'll work in baby steps up to that, but I've already knocked out a few 1200km days. First route im looking at is heading east out of Sackville toward the bridge on the #16. Left at Pt Elgin onto the #15 and head North to Shediac. Keep heading North on the #11 to Miramichi. West out of Miramichi on the #108 to Perth-Andover. Then the #2 (TCH) all the way back home for about 1200km. Option 2 would be the same to Miramichi but then take the #8 to Fred, the #7 to St John and the #1 back to the TCH for about 1100km. Either of those routes prettier than the other? Road conditions better on one than the other? Would appreciate some local NB feedback. Thanks, A.
