Annapolis Royal is designated the training and staging area for Ride The Lobster.
All four 200km Stages of Ride The Lobster have now been set. These Stages will soon be posted at http://www.ridethelobster.com but can be viewed now by linking to:
The Annapolis Stage 1 is sponsored by The Town of Annapolis Royal. This is the oldest, permanent French settlement in North America, with roots dating back to 1605, several years prior to the settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. Annapolis Royal has been designated as the training and staging location for the event since the teams can assemble here and experience much of the terrain they will encounter along the 800km route. A bus shuttle to Yarmouth, the starting point of the race, is to be made available.
