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

I’d definitely ride with ACC again — maybe even in Newfoundland, since I didn’t get to see the Tablelands either time I pedalled past. I thought that it was brilliantly organized and run, but it took me a few days to learn to trust the system. But once I realized that I’d always have the information I needed by the time I needed it, I relaxed and enjoyed it.
Dates fit with my schedule, and the cost was reasonable. Support from organizers, clear communication from organizers, safe routes, all three were met, it went very well and the rides were spectacular.
It was a positive experience & the camping part worked out smoother than what I thought! I liked being part of a group , having some organized structure but yet being free to do what I wanted.
Trying to make everything work for people as long as it was within reason; friendliness & ease to approach; lots of heart and personal pleasure from all of you doing your best to make things work for everyone.
I did a circuit of Cape Breton Island with this company. One of the most memorable trips of my life.
