I appreciated the slow transition into more challenging rides as the tour progressed each day offered new sights to see and appreciate. I always felt safe and accounted for throughout each ride and that I would make it safely to the day's final destination despite any accidental detours. Overall it was an amazing trip and I hope to join other tours in the future.
I am not casting a vote for any particular route in the future. That’s your business. I won’t ride the St. John again, because there will be new roads to conquer. Just know that this rider had a great, great experience start to finish.
And my charcoal is about out from my small spring burn, so I’m collecting lumps for hardwood for another go next spring. As the acrid smoke fills the woods, I will be thinking of you and Atlantic Canada Cycling!
The northern peninsula of Newfoundland contains some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes I’ve ever beheld. It’s also full of moose, which are a thrill to observe. The food is fantastic (provided you ask the chef to broil or bake your fish, rather than fry it), and the cultural landscape is sparse, but interesting.
I would highly recommend this trip, and, I’m already thinking about where to go next, I’d do it again!

We really enjoyed the freedom to tour Nova Scotia seeing what we wanted and without needing deadlines.
