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.
I thought the cooking format worked well. I had never done it that way before. You were well equipped, and I kinda enjoy the challenge of making a meal from what is. The potluck, especially, was very enjoyable...
This was my first organized bike tour of any kind so went into it with an open mind. The camping arrangements were well done and I appreciated that everyone could go at their own pace. The camp station with the kitchen and truck provided just the right amount of amenities to meet everyone's needs. All of the staff went above and beyond what was expected from them and we're very helpful at any given time.
Liked it immensely - it was awesome!
Thank you so much. Your kindness and helpfulness will not be forgotten.
