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.
The first two days were long and uphill, and after that it was mild riding, even the 80 mile day in the rain. We chose to do a combination of camping and B&Bs, which seemed to be a nice way to go, although there were many who camped each night. Getting food became easier as the trip went on, and cooperative cooking of meals increased as the trip developed. All of this adding richly to the experience. We had a great time and would certainly go an another Atlantic Canada Cycling Ride again.
I enjoyed the previous tour I did with you and have the same positive feeling after completing this one. I will strongly recommend it to my friends and colleagues.
