Finally got one of these several years ago. A dream to ride.

Is this the PX 10?

Yes, it’s a PX-10. I rode UO-8 and AO-8 in college. Had the UO-8 for many years; always wanted a PX-10. It is upgraded to a three wheel crank with 7 gears on the back. It rides like a dream — love the sound and hum when coasting down a long hill with the wind in my ears.

sorry…………what I meant was to “BUY” ice along the way…..

Pinned

could somebody please let us know if we will be able to but ice along the roads that we will be travelling on NFLD so we can have some idea what kind of food we can take in our own cooler?

Gary Conrod

Doug, along the way in NL there won’t be much ice close to camps We have our official tour coolers at the back of the truck that we will be able to reach and keep on ice. With our current number coming, you will have about half of one of those big coolers to yourself. We would suggest making use of this. We will keep pumping ice into it when we can find it.

You will have also one crate each for dry goods. Most likely on this tour you will be able to actually have two each. You are welcome to take along a personal cooler on top of all this. However, as people need to have access to the truck to reach their food shelves, use the recharging area, stand inside and chat getting out of rain etc,. everything comes out of the truck as luggage each evening. So the duplication has a cost in terms of storing personal cooler in tent, under tarps or under truck, etc. The important thing is you will have the option having food on ice with the tour coolers.

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.

Gary Conrod

Yes, one couple for sure. We will try to keep the indoor people in touch with the campers.

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….

Gary Conrod

There are 18 at this time. The van will be going back and forth. The group can get quite spread out. If it is a long day there will be longer periods between sightings. Shorter days you should see the sag more often..

I am starting to worry about what clothing to bring for the Newfoundland tour. Should I bring booties?
Rain gear and my fleece pajamas!
Any words from the wise?
Thanks

Gary Conrod

Margaret, you can’t go wrong bringing them. Rain gear yes. Pajamas? Bring whatever us warm you feel okay walking to the campground washrooms in.

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.

Pinned

Have done Cape Breton – Cabot Trail – the ups are tough but the downs are crazy/fast!
lots and lots of climbing but totally worth it 🙂

Pinned

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

Gary Conrod

Hybrids are good for PEI, as the pavement is poor. Most of the distances are also not too high. We go on parts of the Confederation Trail, and there are great clay surface heritage roads to explore.
