Now an annual event, the Ladies' Coastal Ride is sponsored by the Coastal Inns chain of hotels.
The destination for this year's ride will be Belliveau Cove to take part in the "Beaux Vendredis" lobster, clam & crab supper; the last for the 2018 season.
On Friday, August 31st, the ladies will gather at the Coastal Inn on Highway 303, close to the main intersection coming into Digby starting around 5pm. Each participant will receive a ballot to fill out at the Coastal Inn along with a Wharf Rat Rally waiver.
It will be kickstands up at 6pm for the 35-minute ride to Belliveau Cove for dinner and the drawing of the winners' names for the three draws of a free night's stay at any of the Coastal Inns properties.
** Participants might elect to continue riding rather than stopping at Belliveau Cove - please let your ride leader know if you're leaving the group!
Following supper, there'll be a scenic ride along the shore to Meteghan and back into Digby along the highway. Expected time of return is 9pm.
Participants are responsible for their own meal costs ($12+, please see their website) and gas. No charge to enter the contest for the Coastal Inns room nights.
