Across the Highlands 2016 - First Notice

Mark the date of July 16 in your calendar for the Across the Highlands Challenge by Velo Club Cheticamp. This fun, exciting and challenging event is the Mecca of mountain biking for all fitness levels. There's unofficial accolades praised upon the first place finishers who take on this long distance non-race the fastest. Take your fatties, your high end and even low end bikes and see some spectacular scenery along the way plus make a few new friends with riders from other parts of the province. Photos attached are of Cheticamp's earlier hosting of a similar event several years ago that took you from the Church through down town and then up long trails into the mountains that hug the community. There are many places to stay. You can camp for free at the school or check out this list provided today by Cheticamp Club prez Michel Aucoin:
