We did the Cabot Trail on rented hybrids and had no trouble with the hills. Suggest you do some hill work prior to the tour. It’s a very nice scenic tour and ACC does a great job with supporting the riders. Enjoy.
Gary, One more question , but not necessarily the last! What kind of bike do you recommend we rent? We normally ride Hybrid’s , but if we are on pavement I would like to rent a touring bike. Would this work or are we traversing on some rough terrain? Thanks! Rochelle and Blair
Hi Gary, We are wondering about a few things again. We arrive on West jet 386 , July 16 at around 6:34 AM at Halifax. We will need the shuttle to pick us up , but we were wondering where the best place would be to pick us up? PeddleandSea recommended they drop off the bikes at Atlantica at 10AM for the 11AM shuttle pick up, but would we just be turning around to go back to the Airport for you to pick up other participants? This seems like a waste of time and money as we would probably have to take a taxi into Atlantica? What do you recommend?
Also do you supply panniers?
And for our last night accommodation, what is Cap-Egmont? Cost ? Etc.? Is there a website?
We will be staying at Mount St. Vincent University Convention and onsite facilities July 22. Is it possible to get the shuttle to drop us off there?
