This is my favourite Saturday morning ride. I usually come back on 103 to save time. Head out to Peggy's Cove and stop for a quick stroll around the rocks, then onward to Chester for brunch at the spectacular Kiwi Cafe, maybe a stop a Shore Cycle to visit some great folks selling good bikes, on to Mahone Bay for a cup of tea or a pint at the Mug & Anchor, and finally into Lunenburg to enjoy the views and have lunch. Along the Lighthouse Route you've got lots of nice curvy roads in pretty good condition, generally not too much traffic, and scenery I seem to be unable to get tired of.

Last time I was there it rained so hard by waterproof GPS flooded and died. It's a spectacular part of the world and I can only hope to one day see it in the sunshine


That section of the Lighthouse Route looks spectacular, @EatsleepRIDE posted about that very route here: http://eatsleepride.com/c/8702 ! I didn't now about all the great establishments in the area, I will definitely check those out, the next time in the area.
