"It was so nice to spend some time with friends and family in NB. I really have to get back more. On Tuesday after some nice NB riding, Keith and I drove to MSA, Quebec for the world cup. On our way we totally lucked out with a stop in Edmundston where within 15 minutes we found an amazing and well mapped trail network that totally energized us for the rest of the trip. The espresso and ice cream may also have helped. Great work on the trails Edmundston crew. We'll be back!"
