The quiet New Brunswick countryside stars in Atlantic Canada Cycling’s Saint John River Bicycle Tour. The 10-day, 712-kilometre trip follows the broad, historic river all the way through New Brunswick to the Bay of Fundy. Along the route, riders pedal through the heart of the Maritime province, even crossing the world’s longest covered bridge.
The tour actually begins in Quebec’s Rivière-du-Loup, on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, before heading to Edmundston, a French-speaking city in northern New Brunswick. It’s here that the tour joins the Saint John River and stays close all the way to the ocean. Heading south, the towns change from mostly French-speaking to
English-speaking, and the scenery changes from forest to farms. Daily distances range from an easy 30 kilometres to a hilly 90, though each day offers detours for the more energetic. A support van carries luggage and campsites are reserved, but food is up to you. After the ride ends in Saint John, the van shuttles the riders back to Rivière -du-Loup. ATLANTICCANADACYCLING.COM

Again thank you for organizing a great trip. It has become an annual end of summer tradition for me. A great test of my biking and a great way to meet other cyclist.
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
I would like to say thank you for one of the best event I have ever participated in. It was great. I do have one regret, it is that I never did it before now. I loved the people I met, a great bunch of people and your staff was very helpful and great to have around.
