A really pleasant tour. All expectations were met. As a result a greater understanding and appreciation of fellow Canadian citizens of an area different from my home. Really well organized, good daily maps and sites of local interest provided, tour personnel willing to assist and provide without hesitation.Really well done.
I will not hesitate to refer fellow cyclists to your tours.

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!

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.

Like the independence of the structure, not herding together of the whole group. Like the variety of eating, sleeping, and activities available. The organizing of the food in the crates with shopping along the way was superb. The cooking arrangements worked very well. There was plenty of hot water, dishes, soap, propane. All that was very good.

I wanted to write quickly and thank you for designing a very enjoyable cycling trip. Both Lois and I had a terrific time, and beyond bicycling really enjoyed our first exposure to Nova Scotia. The province is beautiful, and at least by standards of further south, rather un-commercialized and unspoiled

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.

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.

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.

It was a grand time. Loved the mix of trails and over the hills rides. Having to break-down and move camp only every other day was a real nice feature of this tour. Spectacular feeling on the road and views. Description of the trip should not lead participants to think it is all bike paths. I love paths because am very traffic adverse, but the better scenery is often the backroads over hill and dale rather than along old rail lines.

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.

Gary and his 2 comrades, who ran the sag wagon and the truck, were greatly at ease with no major rules or restrictions, allowing the riders the ability to make the trip their own personal experience. It is neither overly planned, nor heavily supervised. You can ride at your own pace, and there were many abilities represented on the trip.

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.

The first thing I would tell you about the tour is that there were cyclists of all strengths participating, from novices to experts, and I believe that everybody found the tour to be well designed, and challenging. The terrain is sometimes hilly, but the big factor is wind — tailwinds and you’re laughing, headwinds you’re crying.

Atlantic Canada Cycling’s management style of the tour was very good — they don’t baby you, so that you feel like you’re accomplishing the tour on your own — but they provide enough support that you don’t have to worry about anything but cycling and having a good time

It was an awe-inspiring trip in many ways. First, the place is just stunning — it’s pretty in that “this is almost too lovely and quaint and inviting to be true” kind of way: But it’s also stunning in a primal, earth-at-its-essence kind of way. More than all of that, I remain awed that we actually rode what we rode.

My expectations were to be wowed with my first time in Canada, learn more about bikecamping, and meet lots of new folks.

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 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.
