Are there any other couples who are doing the PEI tour next month who have chosen the indoor stay option vice camping? Raeanna and I are from FL/PA ie;Snowbirds and are looking forward to meeting other cyclists on this tour.
We’re getting excited for our Newfoundland tour! How many people are going? Also, just wondering, how accessible is our tour support van? Should I ensure I pack rain gear at the start of the day and carry it with me, or will the van be available to grab these items should it start raining? And Margaret…the idea of fleece jammies sitting by the fire sounds like the perfect end to a perfect day of riding….
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?
I'll throw in my two cents about the [Saint John River] Tour. It was perfect. You have achieved a marvelous balance of freedom and structure, independence for riders as well as support. Each tour makes the trip their own... collectively their own.
The last day was delightful. I was the last to leave Cabano that morning as the rain began. And I rode like a banshee all morning. At my age I like to create a sort of hard-day / easy-day rhythm, which permits me to get in a serious three-hour workout followed by a day of hanging out with the other riders and enjoying the sights along the route
