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

Thank you for making the recent PEI tour a memorable one for us. We enjoyed every day of riding including the one windy day. We really appreciated the extras ie;Lobster feast, the Center accommodations and providing transportation to include us with the campers. PEI is a wonderful place to ride on safe rural roads and trails. Hopefully (we) will be able to participate in one of your other tours in the future.
But, I just wanted to check in with you all. It was such a super and beautiful time. What a way to get a feel for PEI and its people and places!
Met lots of good people. It was very sociable. Lots of freedom to do your own things. Certainly was well worth the $$. I am sure a lot of work goes this. Thank You.
Very helpful crew, nice quiet roads, interesting things to see along the way, and an ideal size of the group. I wish the maps were more detailed so we could actually follow them on the road.
