Adam’s Way – In Memoriam

April 19, 2008

No one knew Adam Mermuys’ last ride would be a short cycle from St. Peter’s to Morell on the Confederation Trail in the spring of 2006. This picture was taken just before that last ride.

But shortly after that second annual Townships Project’s cross-Island Tip to Tip for Africa fundraiser, an event he chaired that year, he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer.

Ten months later, he was gone.

Now, in memory of this amazing young Montague man, that special section of trail will be known as Adam’s Way. It is the first time such a Confederation Trail designation has been made.

The Confederation Trail – Best In Canada!

April 18, 2008

On April 8th, Destination Canada, which markets Canada primarily in the Nordic countries, has now published their top 7 cycling routes in Canada. Topping the list is Prince Edward Islands Confederation Trail.

Here is a link to the trail webiste and its gallery of pictures that I hope will give you a sense of what it is like to see the parts of PEI that only the Trail can offer.

Here is the map of the trail and here is a link to Vistor’s Guide Page for the Trail that has the full pdf so that you can see the map in more detail.
