I'll throw in my two cents about the [Saint John River] Tour. It was perfect. You have achieved a marvelous balance of freedom and structure, independence for riders as well as support. Each tour makes the trip their own... collectively their own.
The last day was delightful. I was the last to leave Cabano that morning as the rain began. And I rode like a banshee all morning. At my age I like to create a sort of hard-day / easy-day rhythm, which permits me to get in a serious three-hour workout followed by a day of hanging out with the other riders and enjoying the sights along the route
Appreciated the sense of camaraderie amongst cyclists. …all for one …one for all kind of spirit. That attracts me. Loved it. Thanks for the memories!
1st bike trip ever & I loved it! Great organization and excellent leadership. Hip t-shirt colours also. Thanks for the memories.
I biked three summers--Cape Breton Island, Newfoundland and Quebec Province-- with Gary and ACC, and had a blast every time. I enthusiastically tell anyone who bikes about his tours.
We indeed found that Gary and his crew made the entire trip a real treat with the services readily available to help out. We met others who had also been on more than one of ACC Eastern Canada tours, so that also speaks well of how smoothly things are organized. The only real variable is the weather, which NOBODY can predict or change.
