Coastal Trail Exploration Ride

Lorenzo and I spent the afternoon exploring the highland trails of the North Shore of Conception Bay on the island of Newfoundland, between Kingston and Freshwater, today.


Lorenzo had a nasty downhill crash coming off the highland trail into the community of Freshwater. The camera lens doesn't really capture how steep the trail is, but he basically slid his front tire off the grassy edge of the trail and dropped out of sight in an instant. One second I could see his upper body and helmet through the alders, and the next he had just dropped straight down in a pile. He knocked the wind out of himself, and kinked a muscle in his neck, but suffered no broken bones or internal injuries. The bike was fine, too.

If you feel like some 'goat' trail riding, and you're in the mood for some really spectacular scenery, this is a great area to go trail riding.

This trail run also connects the Holyrood to Carbonear section of the peninsula, that we have ridden before, with the top section from Old Perlican to Kingston that we have also covered. It was always the 'missing link' section for us.





And here's some photos...

That looks like the perfect ride. I love to ride by the water.


Thanks!

Awesome... Sometimes I wish I had a KLX or DRZ like you guys so I could think about doing some more insane kind of trails like that. Too bad I lack that balls for it.

Beautiful pics!
