Our Tour Participants Are The Greatest
Here are more comments you have sent our way. Thanks for touring with us!
Thank you for such a memorable vacation!! I am definitely going to do this tour again!
The website gave the impression that it was arranged and hosted by an expert in the area and biking, as well as, a great balance of information, quirkiness and humour. And amazing pictures to peruse. Also, the reasonable price, camping and the laid back feel of the descriptions, socializing, options, etc.
Great job, great company.
…affordable, adaptable, informal, friendly, accommodating, great knowledge of the area for the details that only natives or near natives would know.
An excellent job overall! I was very impressed with the effort that you put in as well as with the turnout for the tour. It was nice to cycle with the group after being on the road by myself!
It was a great experience with a really good, fun group and good logistical support. You have figured our an excellent set of systems to make these tours run super-smoothly.
ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!! Thank you Atlantic Canada Cycling!!!
We really enjoyed the freedom to tour Nova Scotia seeing what we wanted and without needing deadlines.
Well supported, well organized, well executed. Keep up the good work.
Thanks for putting this trip together your commitment to 2-wheel travel, and your “spin” on life.
You’re just about 100%, in fact you are 100% on the stuff within your control.
Mixing camping and cycling together, two of my favorite things. Much more fun than hotel hopping – plus a bakery in every little town, met some great people, made for an epic event. Thanks to Gary and crew for a unforgettable vacation, hope to see you next year.
Searching travel via the internet is a hit and miss opportunity since you do not know how much is hype versus reality. I chose ACC because it seemed to offer service without expensive luxuries. I am glad that I did since I think that the group was about the best and most cohesive group I ever traveled with.
We signed up for the July PEI tour and are really looking forward to visiting PEI! We did the ACC tour of Cape Breton Island a dozen or so years ago and loved it. ACC provides a quality tour at a reasonable price. See you all in July.
Very personal, very well done, good group spirit.
Thank you so much for making our trip so great!
I love that my pics are still up on the Cape Breton tour! Time of my life.
I’d like to say that I had a very enjoyable time. The people were indescribably welcoming, the organization excellent and the countryside beautiful.
I did a circuit of Cape Breton Island with this company. One of the most memorable trips of my life.
Thanks to the support drivers and all staff. An excellent show of teamwork. Very pleased with all. Each and every one on staff a great big thank-you. You worked hard.
I did a lot of online research to do a tour on Prince Edward Island. Your tour was the most reasonably priced tour I could find. That tour was exceptional – there were 7 of us from Virginia that came up together to do the tour in 2005 and it was a wonderful experience for all of us. Since then I’ve returned several times to do other tours with ACC, all of them very well organized and I have many wonderful memories of touring all over the Maritimes.
Good job all around. No complaints. Thank-you for all tour time + effort. Much appreciated 🙂
Many thanks for all your hard work! Great trip!
Been There…Done That – ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!! Thank you Atlantic Canada Cycling!!!
We loved the trip. It’s a real privilege to be able to see the area, travel with a group of like-minded cyclists in a thoughtfully designed tour.
It was well-organized and well-run, I thought. Better yet, the organization was able to adapt to changing conditions or circumstances when necessary.
2 cabs 3 buses 2 planes (thats one way) from Manhattan, everything was great.. Gary and staff did great job.
It’s a lot of fun, you make friends from all over.
I loved it. It was one of the greatest experiences I had. The people were so friendly! You did a wonderful job to organize this tour!!
1st bike trip ever & I loved it! Great organization and excellent leadership. Hip t-shirt colours also. Thanks for the memories.
Everything operated like clockwork. Everyone connected with ACC did everything to make the trip enjoyable. I do enjoy the flexibility that is a characteristic of ACC tours. Great crew. Throughly enjoyed all aspects of the tour.
It’s been years since I participated in the ACC Cape Breton tour, but I look back at it fondly.
Initial contact friendly. Sounded warm and trustworthy – like it would be worth the time and effort of getting there
Thanks for everything. I will never forget.
We really enjoyed the freedom to tour Nova Scotia seeing what we wanted and without needing deadlines.
Just wanted to send you an email to thank you for organizing the Cabot Trail tour last weekend. Some of the hills were hell to climb but the scenery was quite nice. I think what was especially nice about the experience was meeting all the great people….kind of kindred spirits in adventure and health. I also really appreciated your organization of transporting tents, etc.
You were the right combination of people to make this biking vacation enjoyable. Thanks so much.
Gary Conrod runs a fantastic tour. He knows his stuff. This is my 4th one with ACC. You’d love it!! hope to see you again one day soon!
The Gaspé tour was the best experience of cycling I had in my entire life ! Well done to all.
Liked the organization, the challenge of the “hills”, the rush of awesome downhills, meeting neat people, having a hot shower, great weather, scenery …the fact that I did it!
Thanks for everything including all my questions. Thanks also for all the wonderful riding routes, especially the ride from Dingwall to Cheticamp.
Perfect, with lots of time to get off the bike, relax, shop for food, etc.
You have provided us with another Bike tour to remember….The Newfoundland tour is a do again trip…. [We] loved every moment Thank you for all you do to make this such a wonderful experience…. See you next year.
We have traveled a lot but liked very few places as much as your Newfoundland tour. All the many people who we sent our virtual slide show to commented on the natural beauty of NF.
Thanks so much for great biking experience – we will never forget it!
Thanks a lot. Your hard work really paid off. I had a great time.
I liked the fact that everyone can do the trip in their own way – no pressure to be anywhere and no competition.
The first two days were long and uphill, and after that it was mild riding, even the 80 mile day in the rain. We chose to do a combination of camping and B&Bs, which seemed to be a nice way to go, although there were many who camped each night. Getting food became easier as the trip went on, and cooperative cooking of meals increased as the trip developed. All of this adding richly to the experience. We had a great time and would certainly go an another Atlantic Canada Cycling Ride again.
Good rides, good roads, good company.
Just a note of thanks for a job well done. The scenery was beautiful, the participants friendly, the mountains challenging. Overall I had a wonderful time. I realize it must have been a large undertaking. Thanks for being a great organizer.
Extremely well run tour. Rules to make it nice for everyone, but not in your face. This was one of my BEST vacations ever!
Good cycling, good camping and well organized logistics. I had a wonderful time. Great route, beautiful countryside. The distances were not too great leaving room for whatever individuals wanted to do during the ride. I liked the aspect that we could go at our own speed.
I hope to do Cape Breton this year. I very much enjoyed how well you and your guys organized PEI. Thanks!
I appreciate how well the organizers worked together. I didn’t have to worry about running out of water, nor about little particulars that might have occurred. It made for a stress-free ride.
Congratulations on another fine trip. The tour allowed sufficient opportunities for additional mileage. The tour gives back more than what is paid for. Looking forward to next year if I can make it.
What a great vacation it was! We were a very great group and we enjoyed the company of each of you! Also thanks for the amazing organization! Everything was perfect!
Au revoir! Hope to see you again in the future!
Thanks for the great tour! I liked this way of taking a holiday, and will consider doing it again.
The Newfoundland Trip was great- Day 8 with the wind, rain and cold I could have done without but then there was no charge for that.
It was a wonderful trip-thanks for all your organization. I hope to ride again with ACC!
We indeed found that Gary and his crew made the entire trip a real treat with the services readily available to help out. We met others who had also been on more than one of ACC Eastern Canada tours, so that also speaks well of how smoothly things are organized. The only real variable is the weather, which NOBODY can predict or change.
It was great! Thanks for bringing together such a great group of people!
It is a very nice Island you have and thanks for sharing it.
1. The ACC «team» worked seamlessly with all the cyclists to help with all matters on the road & at campsites.
2. The equipment provided by ACC for cooking etc was exceptional. Nice to see that all cyclists took care of everything too.
3. The food crates & coolers provided by ACC were much appreciated by all cyclists.
4. The supermarket stops each day were well thought out.The grocery bin pick-ups much appreciated by all cyclists too.
Another adventure. Thanks – great job.
Another 10/10 trip – excellent views, routes, and friends.
Everyone compatible, organization great.
Sadly, it is time to say goodbye to Newfoundland and its severe, rugged and unromantic beauty. Feel very fortunate to have shared this unforgettable adventure with the most amazing group of people.
I’m always looking for ways to de-stress my life. For me, an adventure vacation is an amazing opportunity to meet people with similar interests and set life’s worries aside. I kept in contact with my family but did not check my email – not even once.
This was my first organized bike tour of any kind so went into it with an open mind. The camping arrangements were well done and I appreciated that everyone could go at their own pace. The camp station with the kitchen and truck provided just the right amount of amenities to meet everyone’s needs. All of the staff went above and beyond what was expected from them and we’re very helpful at any given time.
I loved it! The distances were manageable, the campgrounds were lovely and the biking was beyond amazing!!
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.
Many thanks, PEI is truly a beautiful province.
Thank you for your endless passion for bike and people. I call you “marchand de bonheur”. I had a great time again and feel happy and refreshed.
Overall. I think that if you have an open mind for such a trip, that only good things can really be said. There is nothing negative that stands out in my mind of any consequence – I am very appreciative of the great time I had and hope to repeat in the future!
I thought it was an exceedingly well run tour. Suggestions for side trips were I thought it was an exceedingly well run tour. Suggestions for side trips were great.
There is a personal touch that I appreciate. I like to do business with small organizations made up of real people, not big business. I like the laid back and supportive atmosphere of the tour, especially in the evenings and mornings. I appreciated the help, which made the tour possible for me.
The trip was a joy in many ways. Very challenging for me, but finding that I could do it was exhilarating. I’ve returned in a better place with myself and the world. Ill detour for the Newfoundland tour next year.
Fantastic trip – thanks for everything!
The Newfoundland Tour is one of your best. It met all of the above expectations plus more. Gary, Ed, and Mike did an outstanding job running the tour and the people on this tour were all wonderful to get to know.
Thanks for a great week – you certainly will see us again.
I like how relaxed the itinerary was laid out – we had the option of eating out or buying food to cook ourselves. It was helpful to have those hints mentioned on our maps for sure.
Very good value (already planning next one).
Overall, the ACC tours offer a unique experience with lots of great biking, outstanding routes, and always a great group of fellow riders. For a few weeks when we get back home we are in great shape!
Thank you so much for everything on the CB tour! It was so fantastic and memorable. I loved all the people I met and all the things we did. Your organization and service was perfect.
This is my first bike tour, and thanks to you it won’t be my last.
I just wanted to say thank you in general for a wow tour. I thought you id a fine job of working hard to meet our needs and answer our unending questions.
The route planning was fantastic. Support crew were superb. Organization of the truck and equipment was amazing. Staff knowledge of the area was really good.
We know what to expect from the previous six tours. Tour went as billed. ROUTE WAS EXCELLENT !! (Liked) morning coffee, common plates, cutlery, stoves, etc — go at our own pace, loose schedule, support, including grocery stops, carry tired riders to end of ride, rescuing lost riders, meeting new people and old acquaintances. Also, bicycle maintenance!
I rode the whole distance on a wild moose chase.
We feel we got more than our money’s worth.
I think the tour was very successful – and obviously word is spreading – the tour was superb. Thanks!
Have nothing but praise. ..looking forward to more.
… an awesome support team. Everything was so well organized and I felt safe and cared for throughout the entire trip.
We participated in the PEI tour five years ago. Had such a good time that we talked [friends] into joining us this time. We appreciated all the extras that were a part of this trip.
Thanks for a great tour – hope to do more next summer material (daily maps, route description, opportunities for food, etc) was excellent.
You and your crew have an amazing way of making the days of cycling worry free. Hoping for next year and hoping you have some great tours this year.
Being the oldest and least experienced cyclists in the group, we probably gave you people cause for concern before it began. But we made it through, we always felt you would be there for us in the event we needed you. You succeeded in creating a very warm, outgoing, and caring atmosphere which we will remember for a long time.
Since I’ve never attended one of these before I have nothing to compare it to but it seemed to be very well organized and run. Obviously a lot of work went into this.
You started with the incredible Gros Morne and ended with the remarkable Viking Village. Everything in between – the coves, moose, fox, ferry rides, ice bergs – was terrific!
Thanks for going the extra mile.
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.
