Day 70: Newman Sound Campground to Arnold’s Cove’s Tanker Inn

Today you will continue biking through Terra Nova National Park before heading south to Arnold’s Cove. Take a minute to check out the picnic area’s scenic views of Terra Nova National Park.

Clarenville, population 5 274, is known as the hub of the east coast because it lies in the middle of the Avalon, Burin and Bonavista peninsulas. Clarenville has the distinction of being the North American starting point for the Trans-Atlantic Cable. It was laid in 1955, linking the town to Oban, Scotland, which allowed phone calls to be made across the Atlantic Ocean. All services in Clarenville are located just off of the highway.

Come By Chance is also located off of the highway. It is an oil-refining industrial town.

Your destination for the evening is the Tanker Inn Motel in Arnold’s Cove, population 1 003. Groceries are available in Arnold’s Cove. It marks the beginning of the Avalon Peninsula, the most densely populated area on the island of Newfoundland.
