Our Tour Participants Are The Greatest
Here are more comments you have sent our way. Thanks for touring with us!
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.
A great time cycling, a great group of people, a least one crappy rain day, good Quebec beer and food! The path back to Levi was absolutely fantastic. Seeing the mountains on the north shore and the St. Lawrence together just blew my mind.
Liked the group camaraderie, the scenery, the buzz, the style of the tour. Don’t change the style. Like a big group camping trip things go wrong, but if the attitude is right, it all works out.
Thank you from the pampered princesses.
Thank you so much. Your kindness and helpfulness will not be forgotten.
Thanks again to you and your staff for a most memorable experience. I think you should charge more for all the effort you put in!
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.
It was very well run. The details were all looked after - no glitches or oversights. Excellent organization of the bags, food and kitchen.
The enthusiasm was electric!
A great trip. Thank You!
Thanks for going the extra mile.
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.
Thank you again for another wonderful experience. I now have the winter to ponder which trip I will join next year.
I remember the Cape Breton tour clearly. It was fantastic. I hope to do another tour with ACC one day... sooner than later.
We took a tour of Prince Edward Island with you that we’ll never forget. It was a highlight of our bicycling years. ..your tours were the greatest, you really planned them good!
It’s been a great trip. I enjoyed the tour and will definitely be back!
Great job planning out route -- everyone commented on how it progressed so perfectly day-by-day building up to the spectacular days of climbing on the Cabot Trail.
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.
...affordable, adaptable, informal, friendly, accommodating, great knowledge of the area for the details that only natives or near natives would know.
I’d like to say that I had a very enjoyable time. The people were indescribably welcoming, the organization excellent and the countryside beautiful.
The Saguenay - Lac Saint-Jean Tour was outstanding. The other tour members were a highlight for me.
Liked freedeom to ride at our own pace and schedule and eating on our own without commitments.
Im still glowing and telling great stories about the Newfoundland trip ... especially the wonderous head wind and rain on that fateful day past the airport! Our photos are great as well.
(We) had a great time - thanks for making it possible!
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.
Thanks for putting this trip together your commitment to 2-wheel travel, and your "spin" on life.
I just want to let you know what an amazing experience the trip was. I was so impressed at the support and the patience you both had for myself and everyone else on the tour. That was the best week of vacation for me ever.
We were free to improvise go our way. Lots of options. We were lucky to have a great group of people!
I loved it so much I wanted to do it again and share it with friends.There’s lots to write about: the lovely people we rode with and met along the way, the rugged beauty of Newfoundland, the hills, the wind, the rain. It was hard and challenging and rewarding. You’ve got to want to travel this way. You have to think the rewards outnumber the hardships. And you’ve got to train and get ready and make cycling fitness part of your life. That’s true for all of us.
It was great. The scenery was spectacular and biking was a great way to see it. Further, as long as you were prepared to swallow your pride and take the sag wagon there was no reason why an averagely fit person couldn’t take the ride. Generally the organization gave you support but didn’t run your life.
I'm on my fourth trip with ACC at the moment and I plan to do more. I like the way the tours work: riders get just what they need and are free to explore on their own. I also like the atmosphere which is relaxed and friendly. Highly recommended!
I sure enjoyed the Newfoundland ride and all the wonderful people I was privileged to ride and adventure with. I have had many great conversations and stories to share with my friends and family.
I hope your season of tours has been a good one for you. Would love to do another adventure with ACC.
Thanks for the !trip of a lifetime!
Newfoundland was even more beautiful and rugged than I had imagined. Every day included a new discovery and new adventure. The crew was wonderful. They were always ready to help and made me feel safe and comfortable. Great job!
You were the right combination of people to make this biking vacation enjoyable. Thanks so much.
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.
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!!
We like the relaxed format (ie no guided bike tour, etc.) where you can do your own thing each day. As repeat people, its really fun to meet up with people we have met on the other tours.
I loved the Newfoundland trip last year, and would like to return this year but can't decide between PEI West, Nova Scotia East or Cape Breton. Hoping to get on one of your amazing adventures again this summer.
I definitely feel that I got my money's worth from the trip, and will probably do another one of your excursions sometime soon.
It turned out to be a whole lot of fun. It was a very good chance for me to spend some quality time with my teenage son. Both of us enjoyed getting out to the event.
The laid back attitude of the ACC crew and operation made it feel like I was heading out with a group of friends who were genuinely interested in showing us the best Nova Scotia had to offer. Every destination and attraction along the way went above and beyond my expectations. I only wish there was more time to spend at some of these places - perhaps more two day stops like the one in Lunenburg. The beach front campground on the last night was breathtaking. I also really liked the interactions with the other riders and getting to know them throughout the trip.
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.
We have already done 2 other tours in the last 5 years and really enjoyed the well planned routes and scenery in other provinces (NFLD and PEI). We appreciate how well planned the tours are and how your team work so well together to accommodate the situations that come up each day
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.
Was very friendly and organized. Felt safe and looked after and free to explore scenic NFLD at my own pace. I will definitely tour with ACC again.
Beautiful landscapes, good exercise, and meeting nice like-minded people. Cape Breton blew my expectations away with the landscape and elevation. Very fun, beautiful and GREAT exercise.
We really enjoyed the freedom to tour Nova Scotia seeing what we wanted and without needing deadlines.
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.
The Gaspé tour was the best experience of cycling I had in my entire life ! Well done to all.
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!
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.
My time on your biking expedition in Newfoundland was a life changing experience. I still remain friends with people I met on that trip. You have given so many a huge gift by organizing and helping all of us enjoy such incredible experience.
We did the Cabot Trail on rented hybrids and had no trouble with the hills. Suggest you do some hill work prior to the tour. It’s a very nice scenic tour and ACC does a great job with supporting the riders. Enjoy.
We wanted to thank-you again for an awesome weekend! We really enjoyed our first tour with Atlantic Canada Cycling and look forward to more. We appreciate all you did to make sure that we were safe and secure on the trails and on the campsites.
Despite the weather is was a well-organized and run trip. It was the best way to see the Cabot Trail for my first time! Again thank you for all that you did.
Extremely well run tour. Rules to make it nice for everyone, but not in your face. This was one of my BEST vacations ever!
Great trip! You haven't aged (much)!
I think it was well organized. Overall though the coffee was always ready, and the gear ready at the end of the day. The food and beer stops were easy to find. I think everyone in your organization wanted to make it successful for all the riders.
Helpful crew, accurate maps and cue sheets, good planning, like-minded participants. All my expectations were met - I particularly appreciated the general organization of the tour and the friendly crew.
Would like to offer congratulations to all who had a hand in the organization - and a big thank-you.
Had a blast. Good luck and see you again!
Spectacular... 3 years running! ..see you again next year!
Thanks. Great time as always.
Please realize that the last two (tours) in which I participated hold especially fond memories for me and I appreciate your part in making them.
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.
The last eight days couldn't have been better. Grateful to all of you for the kindness, inspiration, hilarity, & rich memories
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.
Best tour booklet ever, thanks. I mean that sincerely, after having cycle toured with various companies. Cant wait to start this trip.
Thanks for a great week - you certainly will see us again.
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.
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!
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.
Appreciated the sense of camaraderie amongst cyclists. …all for one …one for all kind of spirit. That attracts me. Loved it. Thanks for the memories!
What a great bike ride it was! We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent with each one of you. Group dynamics were important, and it was good.
I enjoyed the "discovery" aspect and the relaxed attitude greatly.
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.
Thanks for a whole new batch of memories ~ the ride, the scenery, the food, the people, and the endless storytelling!
I liked the fact that everyone can do the trip in their own way - no pressure to be anywhere and no competition. You can feel free to do what you can at your own speed.
I know there are other cycling tour options to choose from and there is a reason people pick ACC over them. You all provide just the right amount of support and tell it like it is, which I appreciate. From the crew to the riders, everyone is there to enjoy the ride and share in a beautiful experience. I hope your future tours are successful and I hope to be back next year for another adventure. Thank you so much for providing the services to make this possible and I wish you guys all the best!
What a great low-key operation. Thanks to you all.
Beautiful scenery, well planned routes, nice camping areas, good showers, competent staff, usable information for each days' activities. It is always nice when the people on the tour all get along and interact well together.
It exceeded our expectations because of the kindness of both organizers and cyclists
I had such a good time I will make all efforts to return next year.
Initial contact friendly. Sounded warm and trustworthy - like it would be worth the time and effort of getting there
Thanks - amazing life experience!
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!
Riding was amazing, and, really enjoyed the people I met. Casual, self paced, kind of laid back attitude. Lots of flexibility regarding riding, meals, stops along the way, etc.
Many thanks for the adventure, laughter and fun. Hope to see you next summer.
Very personal, very well done, good group spirit.
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.
Thanks for a great tour and the road-side repair
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.
I hope to join another tour next year.
A professional tour organizer for over thirty years, that not only talks the talk but bikes the bike. I’ve been on more than a dozen of Gary's tours over the last 25 years and all were excellent.
My expectations were pretty much what you provide -- the infrastructure to do what is primarily a self-guided but semi-supported trip in a remote place. (I've done this sort of thing before). By semi-supported I mean the personal accountability for cooking, shopping, setting up tents, etc. I think there are other people who might have a higher expectation for a guide giving more info about the area, or more comfort, but that wasn't what mine was. I expect to have maps and a workable route, know I don't have to worry about accommodations, to have my gear at the location on time, to be picked up if something goes very wrong and to have tools and expertise on hand if something is wrong with my bike I can't solve. You provided that ;-).
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.
I did the Cabot Trail tour a few years ago and can recommend Atlantic Cycling as a very cost efficient tour operator.
Caroline and I want to extend to you our greatest appreciation for opening our minds and bodies to the experience of Newfoundland and Labrador. Your leadership was absolutely superb, and your attention to all riders needs and queries was outstanding. The route and accommodations could not have been better.
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.
I attended two previous tours with Atlantic Canada Cycling and had a wonderful time. Outdoor exercise, pretty campsites, friendly people. Thanks for taking such good care of us.
