Excellent pre-trip information and response to specific questions. Incredible value.
It was better the expected. Lots of support, camaraderie and amazing cycling!
The laid back attitude of the ACC crew and operation made it feel like I was heading out with a group of friends who were genuinely interested in showing us the best Nova Scotia had to offer. Every destination and attraction along the way went above and beyond my expectations. I only wish there was more time to spend at some of these places - perhaps more two day stops like the one in Lunenburg. The beach front campground on the last night was breathtaking. I also really liked the interactions with the other riders and getting to know them throughout the trip.
Liked the organization, the challenge of the "hills", the rush of awesome downhills, meeting neat people, having a hot shower, great weather, scenery …the fact that I did it!
Super - it wasn`t "over organized" - enough flexibility to do your own thing, yet, enough info etc. to make it a great experience."
I died and went to heaven many times over. Wow!
We were free to improvise go our way. Lots of options. We were lucky to have a great group of people!
It’s a once in a lifetime trip! Enjoy!
Would like to offer congratulations to all who had a hand in the organization - and a big thank-you.
I think the tour was very successful - and obviously word is spreading - the tour was superb. Thanks!
I have participated in over 30 multi-day bike tours since 1994. The ACC tours have been among the best and I will certainly return for more tours with Gary. I will keep an eye on your website to see what you have planned for next year and the years to come.
I highly recommend this trip. The camping facilities were great (I did stay in a B&B at Crows Head). Labrador was magnificent. I liked the idea of being able to hike, cycle and perhaps sea kayak all in one day. I would recommend bringing along some water proofed booties for cycling as we did have rain one evening. Also I recommend taking along warm clothes as it can get quite cool especially as you travel farther north. A good tent is essential too in case you get rain.
I met a great bunch of people on the Tour. Gary and his staff did a terrific job. It is a trip I could easily repeat and I highly recommend it as a place you must see.
Have nothing but praise. ..looking forward to more.
I definitely feel that I got my money's worth from the trip, and will probably do another one of your excursions sometime soon.
You should be proud of this event. Its well organized, in beautiful country, with nice people. It’s also a lot of fun.
Obviously a great deal of time, effort, and expertise went into the preparation of these. All were interesting, useful and complete, far surpassing my expectations.
I just want to let you know what an amazing experience the trip was. I was so impressed at the support and the patience you both had for myself and everyone else on the tour. That was the best week of vacation for me ever.
Thanks for a great tour and the road-side repair
It was a fabulous combination of scenic beauty, congenial camping and cooking, and reasonable cost.
The Newfoundland trip has a little bit of everything - hills, flats, riding along the ocean, riding in Tundra and some good hiking. Along the way we were able to catch a glimpse at whales, and even saw icebergs! Newfoundland is a remote area of Canada, and you get to experience great open spaces;, which also means limited services to some extent. There is never a day without something along the way, but you definitely realize that you are removed from the congested city life. The trip is well planned out, and the cycling nicely spread out over the ten days. The longest day of the trip is not overly challenging - unless Mother Nature has her way. Last year we ended up having our worst weather day on our longest day, which meant colder weather than expected, and some tough head winds - but it is all part of experiencing Newfoundland. The weather can change quickly, and we saw that first hand. I really enjoyed the trip, and would highly recommend it.
