Our Tour Participants Are The Greatest
Here are more comments sent our way. Thanks again to all who join us for our bicycle tours each summer.
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!
Thanks to you and your crew for a great tour, hope to get back up for next year.
Many thanks for the adventure, laughter and fun. Hope to see you next summer.
I’m looking forward to next year already. You did a wonderful job!
Obviously a great deal of time, effort, and expertise went into the preparation of these. All were interesting, useful and complete, far surpassing my expectations.
Your customers were all first rate folks and we made friends that we hope will continue to ride your routes.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you for such a memorable vacation!! I am definitely going to do this tour again!
Thank you so much for making our trip so great!
Spectacular… 3 years running! ..see you again next year!
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.
This was my second tour – the first was so enjoyable, I wanted to do another. Well organized, good camping grounds, doable to a range of abilities. Wonderful tour in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
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.
I could not decide between PEI and Cape Breton so decided to do both. I knew PEI would also help me train for Cape Breton as I did not have much time to prepare beforehand.. Thank you for the trip(s) of a lifetime.
Thanks for making the biking so much easier. Great routes. I’d like to do another tour with you another time.
You provide support at a distance. You allow riders freedom to ride and do whatever they want when they want. I very much enjoyed the whole experience, very happy that you love to do this.
I did a circuit of Cape Breton Island with this company. One of the most memorable trips of my life.
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 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.
When the eight days were over I was glad that I had done all of the climbs, seen all the great wildlife, and met all of the great people whom I hope to keep in touch with.
Thanks for the great tour! I liked this way of taking a holiday, and will consider doing it again.
Thanks for a whole new batch of memories ~ the ride, the scenery, the food, the people, and the endless storytelling!
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.
Friendly people, good fun, spectacular scenery, sense of group togetherness.
Superb! Couldn’t have been better. Nowhere to improve!
It’s a once in a lifetime trip! Enjoy!
Another 10/10 trip – excellent views, routes, and friends.
ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!! Thank you Atlantic Canada Cycling!!!
I hope to do Cape Breton this year. I very much enjoyed how well you and your guys organized PEI. Thanks!
Very satisfied with organizational aspects. Staff went out of their way (literally) to accommodate us.
We love your website (and) your grass roots approach and the fact that we can prepare our own meals at the campsite. Also that there may be an option for bed and breakfasts.
Had a blast. Good luck and see you again!
You were the right combination of people to make this biking vacation enjoyable. Thanks so much.
I rode the whole distance on a wild moose chase.
I had a wonderful time on the NS tour. A trip to remember for many years.
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!
Looking forward to another good ride. Thank you for your help and dedication to cycling.
We have done the Cape Breton, Newfoundland and Eastern PEI tours over the past four summers. Always a great time and amazing for my legs and cardio. I like seafood too and being out East. Can’t wait.
You’re just about 100%, in fact you are 100% on the stuff within your control.
I thought your organization was run very well before and now afterward. Your organisation is run top notes.
Many thanks, PEI is truly a beautiful province.
The Gaspé tour was the best experience of cycling I had in my entire life ! Well done to all.
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.
Thank you for leading a terrific cycling tour. It certainly has met all my expectations. Hope to see you on another trip
It was great! Thanks for bringing together such a great group of people!
Great job, great company.
Amazing trips through Atlantic Canada Cycling!!!
Thanks for another great bike tour!
Good job all around. No complaints. Thank-you for all tour time + effort. Much appreciated 🙂
All in all a tremendous cycling experience and an impressive feat of organization by Gary Conrod and his helpful staff at Atlantic Canada Cycling.
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.
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.
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.
I will be recommending it to my bicycling friends.
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.
Hope you will be able to stick with the operation for a number more years while we are still capable of going with your groups.
I’ll throw in my two cents about the [Saint John River] Tour. It was perfect. You have achieved a marvelous balance of freedom and structure, independence for riders as well as support. Each tour makes the trip their own… collectively their own.
The last day was delightful. I was the last to leave Cabano that morning as the rain began. And I rode like a banshee all morning. At my age I like to create a sort of hard-day / easy-day rhythm, which permits me to get in a serious three-hour workout followed by a day of hanging out with the other riders and enjoying the sights along the route
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.
I enjoyed the other people on this trip, the scenery, the choice of campgrounds and appreciated the coordination of all the logistics – ferries, etc – that were required for a trip such as this one.
Thanks so much for great biking experience – we will never forget it!
It’s been years since I participated in the ACC Cape Breton tour, but I look back at it fondly.
Thank you so much. Your kindness and helpfulness will not be forgotten.
Thanks for a great week – you certainly will see us again.
Loved cycling there. One of the best ACC trips.
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!
After that first tour I decided to do as many of your tours as I could over the years. Thank you for yet another great tour. Hope to see you again in another year or so.
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!
Down-to-earth, nice,funny, sense of humour, knowledgeable, kind, organized, caring attitides.
Another adventure. Thanks – great job.
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.
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.
Had so much fun on PEI tour!!
The riding distances were very good, with ample time to stop for the major interest points. The description of how to prepare for the next day was good. The tour organization was excellent. The truck was always open when we needed it. The list of places to stop was good. The hints about what to explore were very good suggestions.
The campfires were good. Socialization was excellent. We meet a lot of very nice people. All in all it was a fantastic tour. The size of the group was very nice.
You should be proud of this event. Its well organized, in beautiful country, with nice people. It’s also a lot of fun.
It was very well run. The details were all looked after – no glitches or oversights. Excellent organization of the bags, food and kitchen.
Congratulations on all your hard work – it is appreciated on our behalf. Makes the holiday so much easier for participants.
The [Annapolis] Valley is a terrific place to bike – great scenery and variety.
Thanks for an enjoyable first bike tour!
I consider your event the best bicycling tour experience I’ve ever had. Let’s hope it continues to prosper and be held for a long time.
I definitely feel that I got my money’s worth from the trip, and will probably do another one of your excursions sometime soon.
Wow! How can we thank you enough for this life changing experience. You gave us such a gift! Thank you for being you!
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!
Keep the tours coming. Thanks
Excellent pre-trip information and response to specific questions. Incredible value.
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.
ACC tours are absolutely the highlight of my year. What’s not to like. Good staff, good leader. You should consider charging more; running close to the margin can’t be low-stress.
Everything was so well organized and I felt safe and cared for throughout the entire trip.
Thank you for a wonderful vacation
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
Best tour booklet ever, thanks. I mean that sincerely, after having cycle toured with various companies. Cant wait to start this trip.
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the tour this year. Just what I needed! I am looking forward to doing another one next year..
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.
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!
Super – it wasn`t “over organized” – enough flexibility to do your own thing, yet, enough info etc. to make it a great experience.”
I arrived back with a sore bum and a tired body but I was ecstatic with the ride I’d done. Even in less-than-ideal weather I would do it again in a heart beat. This tour was impressive, especially considering the price. I felt taken care of along the way. I would recommend it to any first year rider who is looking for a great challenge and awesome excuse to take a road trip out East!
