This summer i am planning a round trip from my home in Central PA up to Southern Vermont, into Maine (Brunswick area), out to Nova Scotia, and across Canada to Niagra Falls, then back home.
I have house hook-ups in both VT AND ME, so no need for places to stay between Central PA and Grafton VT, or between Grafton VT and Brunswick ME, tho suggestions for food along the way, in New York State and VT/NH/ME are welcome.
**We are on road bikes NOT Dual Sport, so hard surfaces are gonna be the rule for us.
**This is also a leisure run, we'll have the women-folk along.
**We are looking for B&Bs and Mom & Pop motels, and decent places for food, coffee, etc.
The main criteria is to avoid freeways, major motorways, interstates, or turnpikes!
US/Canadian hiways and State/local roads with the possibility of a short jaunt on the occasional major motorway to connect routes remaining open.
What i DON'T know is what's happening between Round Pond, ME and Niagra Falls, other than we want to get out onto NS, and stay in Canada between, say, Halifax and Niagra Falls.
we'll almost certainly take US 1 > Can 1 up to St John out of Round Pond
UNLESS there are ferries from ME to NS.
From what i can glean off the 'net, ferries no longer run between Maine and Nova Scotia? Is this TRUE or FALSE? This could make a big difference in our route planing and timing allotments.
Any and all information & suggestions are welcome in planning this adventure.
POIs, restaurants, B&Bs, Mom & Pop motels & restaurants, home cooking, even cocktails, ales, and breakfast/coffee stops, gasoline stops, whatever.
