Our Tour Participants Are The Greatest
Thanks to all who join us for our bicycle tours each summer. Here are some comments you have sent our way.
Good job all around. No complaints. Thank-you for all tour time + effort. Much appreciated 🙂
We just love your tours! We love being able to eat our own food when we want to. You have a good process down!
Splendid weekend! Well-conceived and managed. Many Thanks.
I remember the Cape Breton tour clearly. It was fantastic. I hope to do another tour with ACC one day… sooner than later.
I rode the whole distance on a wild moose chase.
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.
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.
Thanks to you and your crew for a great tour, hope to get back up for next year.
The Gaspé tour was the best experience of cycling I had in my entire life ! Well done to all.
Thanks for the !trip of a lifetime!
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 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.
I love that my pics are still up on the Cape Breton tour! Time of my life.
Liked freedeom to ride at our own pace and schedule and eating on our own without commitments.
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.
I appreciated the slow transition into more challenging rides as the tour progressed each day offered new sights to see and appreciate. I always felt safe and accounted for throughout each ride and that I would make it safely to the day’s final destination despite any accidental detours. Overall it was an amazing trip and I hope to join other tours in the future.
It was great! Thanks for bringing together such a great group of people!
Well organized but allows a lot of individual freedom. Met our expectations re distances / camping / organisation and cost. We would definitely like to do many tours with ACC again.
Good rides, good roads, good company.
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.
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.
I thought your organization was run very well before and now afterward. Your organisation is run top notes.
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.
It exceeded our expectations because of the kindness of both organizers and cyclists
I often recommend ACC to other cyclists. Costs of participating in a cycle tour are very reasonable, and rides are great for the average cyclist.
Meeting new people, coming together, making new friends and bicycling. It can’t get any better than that.
As usual it was great. Amazing scenery, cycling, and group spirit. Thank you for a wonderful tour.
Another great tour! Thank you so much for everything you did for us. Hope to see you on another tour.
I biked three summers–Cape Breton Island, Newfoundland and Quebec Province– with Gary and ACC, and had a blast every time. I enthusiastically tell anyone who bikes about his tours.
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.
Enjoyed the tour immensely. Met wonderful people. Realize some people like to bike on their own and with different paces, quite understandable. It was nice to chat with everyone at camp.
Another adventure. Thanks – great job.
It’s a once in a lifetime trip! Enjoy!
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.
Would like to offer congratulations to all who had a hand in the organization – and a big thank-you.
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
Thanks for my second unforgettably great tour with ACC, I’m already looking forward to the next one! Take care of yourselves at
as well as you took care of us! Thanks!
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!
It was very well run. The details were all looked after – no glitches or oversights. Excellent organization of the bags, food and kitchen.
Have nothing but praise. ..looking forward to more.
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.
Loved the interesting diversity of people; the back-up; the camaraderie; the fireside singing and talking
We feel we got more than our money’s worth.
First class function. After lots more experiences elsewhere Ive come back to appreciate it even more by contrast to the other events.
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.
The [Annapolis] Valley is a terrific place to bike – great scenery and variety.
It’s been a great trip. I enjoyed the tour and will definitely be back!
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!
Been There…Done That – ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!! Thank you Atlantic Canada Cycling!!!
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.
Your customers were all first rate folks and we made friends that we hope will continue to ride your routes.
You run a great adventure tour, and I thank you again. See you next summer.
Best tour booklet ever, thanks. I mean that sincerely, after having cycle toured with various companies. Cant wait to start this trip.
This is our third tour with Atlantic Canada Cycling. We are excited and looking forward to another great vacation.
A great trip of Eastern Nova Scotia. Thanks for sharing your beautiful piece of the world.
Thank you for leading a terrific cycling tour. It certainly has met all my expectations. Hope to see you on another trip
2 cabs 3 buses 2 planes (thats one way) from Manhattan, everything was great.. Gary and staff did great job.
What you are doing is priceless and I’d do it again.
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.
I like the whole thing… the group experience is important, the riding challenge is important, the support is vital, cooking together is fun, going to a restaurant together after a long ride is wonderful, and the scenery and the villages we pass through are delightful.
Good variety with mix of long rides, short rides and off days. Got good value for the cost of the tour.
Thanks for another great trip! I’ll be back!
Familiar with Atlantic Canada Cycling from past tours. Your tours are organized, good assistance around camp, and very reasonably priced. Thanks for opportunity to cycle with you.
I liked the fact that everyone can do the trip in their own way – no pressure to be anywhere and no competition.
I really enjoyed my experience. I met some great people, saw some beautiful scenery, and pushed my limits as far as cycling goes.
Many thanks for the adventure, laughter and fun. Hope to see you next summer.
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.
I did the Cabot Trail tour a few years ago and can recommend Atlantic Cycling as a very cost efficient tour operator.
You did a first rate job! I am by nature a cynical person. Your people did a first rate job, and you can quote me or use me as a reference.
-have been on past tours and enjoy the format. We like the camping format, especially because you have more opportunity to meet people and socalize.
I appreciated everyone’s efforts and how hard you all worked to make this a strong, supportive and fun event. Everyone did a great job, and I appreciated knowing you were all there. Overall, it was a challenging and immersive experience but a very rewarding one, and I am really grateful I got a chance to do it.
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!
Thanks for a whole new batch of memories ~ the ride, the scenery, the food, the people, and the endless storytelling!
Thanks for everything including all my questions. Thanks also for all the wonderful riding routes, especially the ride from Dingwall to Cheticamp.
Thank you ever so much for a fantastic tour. You definitely went above and beyond. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour, Quebec, and its bike friendly people… Take care. See you on the road again.
Dear Team ACC, your’re the best! Thanks so much for great biking experience – we will never forget it!
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.
Everything seemed very organized – I was quite pleased.
Many thanks, PEI is truly a beautiful province.
Had a blast. Good luck and see you again!
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.
The enthusiasm was electric!
Another most excellent tour.
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.
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.
We will recommend this to our biking friends – a great experience.
I hope to do Cape Breton this year. I very much enjoyed how well you and your guys organized PEI. Thanks!
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 have participated in over 30 multi-day bike tours since 1994. The ACC tours have been among the best and I will certainly return for more tours with Gary. I will keep an eye on your website to see what you have planned for next year and the years to come.
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 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.
I died and went to heaven many times over. Wow!
Superb! Couldn’t have been better. Nowhere to improve!
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.
Thanks for the most amazing trip.
We have travelled with various bike touring companies,you are one of the well organized,super service,and happy crews of all. Till next trip.
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.
