Voted one of the best places to ride in North America by Bicycling magazine. Cape Breton Island’s got everything a cyclist could want: quiet roads, one traffic light, epic climbs and descents, and inspiring views from oceanside mountains. And with more than 20 tours of Cape Breton under their belt, Atlantic Canada Cycling has the trip down to a science. Armed with a map, 30 to 50 cyclists guide themselves on day rides. averaging 70 kilometres. while support vans move camp and help out the riders. Everyone travels at their own speed – stopping for a picture every five minutes on the Cabot Trail or hammering along beautiful Bras d’Or Lake-and then the group gets together at night.

Campgrounds were good and the food system — which we were hesitant about before the trip, not sure how well it would work — actually was great. Great setup with the dishes and cooking tools, crate and cooler system, and daily grocery pickups.
We really enjoyed our tour of NFLD last summer and know how well organized Gary and his crew are in helping to make this tour memorable.
The group dynamics were the most important factor to me in having a good tour and they were really excellent. There was a positive supportive and hospitable energy on the whole tour. It feels wrong not to be seeing you all again! I’m certainly up for more ACC tours in the future. Peace, love, happiness…see you on the road.
Finished the Cape Breton tour on Monday with a great group of folks. Thank you for a wonderful week of cycling.
