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 have not forgotten the wonderful Newfoundland Tour - unforgettable!

Default Avatar75
K. Bota

The Newfoundland trip has a little bit of everything - hills, flats, riding along the ocean, riding in Tundra and some good hiking. Along the way we were able to catch a glimpse at whales, and even saw icebergs! Newfoundland is a remote area of Canada, and you get to experience great open spaces;, which also means limited services to some extent. There is never a day without something along the way, but you definitely realize that you are removed from the congested city life. The trip is well planned out, and the cycling nicely spread out over the ten days. The longest day of the trip is not overly challenging - unless Mother Nature has her way. Last year we ended up having our worst weather day on our longest day, which meant colder weather than expected, and some tough head winds - but it is all part of experiencing Newfoundland. The weather can change quickly, and we saw that first hand. I really enjoyed the trip, and would highly recommend it.

The northern peninsula of Newfoundland contains some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes I’ve ever beheld. It’s also full of moose, which are a thrill to observe. The food is fantastic (provided you ask the chef to broil or bake your fish, rather than fry it), and the cultural landscape is sparse, but interesting.

I would highly recommend this trip, and, I’m already thinking about where to go next, I’d do it again!

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 ;-).

More spectacular than almost anything I saw on my Trans-America Trail ride across America back in 1978. I mean, they have FIORDS up there! You’ll see caribou and seals and waterfowl and maybe even whales. You may even see the polar bear we missed. You almost surely will see icebergs.

Remember, it may be July here in the States, but up there the weather is incredibly changeable. I mean, it can be 70 degrees and sunny and then 15 minutes later its 50 and rainy and then 15 minutes later and its 70 and sunny again.

I am not casting a vote for any particular route in the future. That’s your business. I won’t ride the St. John again, because there will be new roads to conquer. Just know that this rider had a great, great experience start to finish.

And my charcoal is about out from my small spring burn, so I’m collecting lumps for hardwood for another go next spring. As the acrid smoke fills the woods, I will be thinking of you and Atlantic Canada Cycling!

Just wanted to let you know what a great time I had cycling with you in PEI. This was the first time I’d gone on an organized tour. I really liked how well you thought out the itinerary, and provided us maps so we could set our own pace and alternate the route if we liked. I found some gravel roads that put my mountain bike to good use.

I like to provide somewhat for myself, so the chance to cook and camp without having to carry all my gear solo was nice. It was easy to make friends, yet have as much time alone as we wanted.
If you ever need a local recommendation Maine, Id be glad to talk with anyone about the PEI tour. Hope I will be able to go on the Newfoundland tour someday.

Wow, did I have a great time on this tour, my first visit to Canada. I definitely need a warmer sleeping bag if I come back! Ha ha. Your organization of the trip blew me away, from sags to campsite, accommodating some special needs folks, the handy grocery pickups, the gorgeous last 2 campsites, and that amazing truck layout! I have never camped more than overnight, so this was a huge adventure for me. I hope you offer this tour again. Staying put for 2 nights was a godsend. The last day was my absolute favorite route!

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.
