|Started by Gary Conrod in 1987, Atlantic Canada Cycling grew out of one solitary week-end cycling get together. It was an extreme amount of work, but an overwhelming success. After staging the first Atlantic Canada Bicycle Rally, a weekend invitational gathering of cyclists, Gary was repeatedly asked to add an after-event week-long tour. So – a tour was added. And later, another. Over time, Atlantic Canada Cycling just seemed to naturally develop into a vibrant bicycle-touring organization.|
|Since that staring weekend in 1987, thousands of cyclists have taken part in our events. Even more have made use of our expertise. Atlantic Canada Cycling is the prime source of cycling inquiries in Eastern Canada. We help thousands each year by way of e-mails, calls, and letters. In addition, as of this time, over 800,000 visits have been made to the Atlantic Canada Cycling web site.Our Tours are now offered through the entire summer (not that it is that long out here.) Cyclists participate on our tours in Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and occasionally next door in Quebec.|
