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.
I had a great time. The route planning was fantastic and ensured we were always on safe roads with great views. Also made sure we saw the best of Nova Scotia.
Thanks for the great tour! I liked this way of taking a holiday, and will consider doing it again.
Thank you so much. Your kindness and helpfulness will not be forgotten.
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!
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.
The Newfoundland Trip was great- Day 8 with the wind, rain and cold I could have done without but then there was no charge for that.
It was a wonderful trip-thanks for all your organization. I hope to ride again with ACC!
Good cycling routes that I wouldn’t necessarily be able to find myself, information about what there is to see along the way, and nice places to stay at night, as well as en route support.
It was everything I had hoped it would be.
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.
You have been able to provide a person from the States a glimpse into the beauty and culture of a spectacular province. I have also got to hang out with cool Canadians. Thanks for your dedication and hard work.
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.
Congratulations on all your hard work – it is appreciated on our behalf. Makes the holiday so much easier for participants.
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.
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.
The remoteness, land, sea and people touch us somewhere deep inside that we like. The trip filled a special spot in our life hope will be with us forever. Living down here is sometimes like living in a blender. NF and PEI remind us of who we really are.
Thanks for being so helpful to a relative newcomer to biking. You were so helpful to help me with my wheel problem.
I rode a couple of times with you on Cabot Trail trip. I still wear the ti-shirt from the trip. Maybe you remember me, I had all kinds of bicycle trouble, My front gears feel apart on the first day, my bicycle seat broke off on the second day and on the third day my front tire needed to be changed. You never asked for any extra money only the cost of the new tire. At the end of the trip I gave you $100 for all your troubles, but you deserved much more.
Thanks to you again for all the help. It was a fanatastic trip despite all my bike problems.
You’ll have the time of your life!
I enjoyed the “discovery” aspect and the relaxed attitude greatly.
I thought the tour was run very smoothing, with just enough surprises (good ones) to enhance the experience. …guide kept in touch with everybody and informed of what to expect, where to find food, local suppers, distances, etc.
We will recommend this to our biking friends – a great experience.
Thanks for everything including all my questions. Thanks also for all the wonderful riding routes, especially the ride from Dingwall to Cheticamp.
I enjoyed the previous tour I did with you and have the same positive feeling after completing this one. I will strongly recommend it to my friends and colleagues.
(B.) and I would like to commend you and your staff for an absolutely wonderful bicycle trip around the eastern part of P.E.I. which we did with you. It was everything we expected and more. We were very impressed by the organization of the tour. Itineraries were very detailed and well planned, with suggestions for stops along the way, but at the same time extremely flexible so people could start, stop, and continue the trip at leisure.
We are a family of four who did the PEI trip last summer. Our kids were 9 and 11 when we took the trip. We had taken two two-day trips to prepare for the trip, as well as some training runs at home. The kids enjoyed themselves, especially since all the adults seemed to take them under their respective wings. We took our time along the trail, and took many breaks. We were usually the last ones to arrive at the campsite, but somebody has to be last!!
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.
The Gaspé tour was the best experience of cycling I had in my entire life ! Well done to all.
There is a personal touch that I appreciate. I like to do business with small organizations made up of real people, not big business. I like the laid back and supportive atmosphere of the tour, especially in the evenings and mornings. I appreciated the help, which made the tour possible for me.
I had a great time. Loved it.. ..felt like I really got to see an in-depth view of nova Scotia that many visitors didn’t
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.
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.
Everything was so well organized and I felt safe and cared for throughout the entire trip.
I rode the whole distance on a wild moose chase.
…affordable, adaptable, informal, friendly, accommodating, great knowledge of the area for the details that only natives or near natives would know.
Another adventure. Thanks – great job.
Had a great time. Another thing off the bucket list. Loved it. Thanks so much
I will be recommending it to my bicycling friends.
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 really enjoyed this low-key type of tour. Terrific!
Extremely well run tour. Rules to make it nice for everyone, but not in your face. This was one of my BEST vacations ever!
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.
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 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.
1st bike trip ever & I loved it! Great organization and excellent leadership. Hip t-shirt colours also. Thanks for the memories.
Most enjoyable bicycle event I have attended.
Thanks for another great tour.
The Saguenay – Lac Saint-Jean Tour was outstanding. The other tour members were a highlight for me.
Everything seemed very organized – I was quite pleased.
It was very well run. The details were all looked after – no glitches or oversights. Excellent organization of the bags, food and kitchen.
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 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.
I did a lot of online research to do a tour on Prince Edward Island. Your tour was the most reasonably priced tour I could find. That tour was exceptional – there were 7 of us from Virginia that came up together to do the tour in 2005 and it was a wonderful experience for all of us. Since then I’ve returned several times to do other tours with ACC, all of them very well organized and I have many wonderful memories of touring all over the Maritimes.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
This is my first bike tour, and thanks to you it won’t be my last.
You run a great adventure tour, and I thank you again. See you next summer.
Logistics are pretty strong. We like the meet-and-greet, pot luck etc. We like the camping and the flexibility to book a room for some of the trip. Strong pit crew. Grocery stops, coffee. Really like that you carry dishes, silverware, cups, pots, etc. We appreciate your research on notable things on the tour.
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.
A really pleasant tour. All expectations were met. 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.
A chance to see a part of the country I hadn’t seen before; having superb support from you and meeting up with great people who all share a common goal.
You should be proud of this event. Its well organized, in beautiful country, with nice people. It’s also a lot of fun.
I had been worried that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the more experienced bikers, but I found it was easy to find a niche. Made some terrific friends.
Splendid weekend! Well-conceived and managed. Many Thanks.
Thank you for leading a terrific cycling tour. It certainly has met all my expectations. Hope to see you on another trip
It’s a treat to be able to enjoy such a well-run event.
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!
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!
It was a great experience with a really good, fun group and good logistical support. You have figured our an excellent set of systems to make these tours run super-smoothly.
Great trip! You haven’t aged (much)!
First class function. After lots more experiences elsewhere Ive come back to appreciate it even more by contrast to the other events.
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.
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.
Beyond beyond beyond my expectation! Super amazingly fun!
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.
Friendly people, good fun, spectacular scenery, sense of group togetherness.
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.
Gary of Atlantic Canada Cycling, was terrific and helped us even though we weren’t with his group. Saved us from missing ferry and being stuck for an extra week in Newfoundland.
I think the tour was very successful – and obviously word is spreading – the tour was superb. Thanks!
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.
Many thanks for the adventure, laughter and fun. Hope to see you next summer.
Loved it! Somewhat hillier than I had expected, but I enjoyed the challenge. And having completed it, Now I can brag about it. Plus I can say again, it was so beautiful. We saw all kinds of things along the way.
This is our third tour with Atlantic Canada Cycling. We are excited and looking forward to another great vacation.
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.
This Newfoundland trip was really fabulous. That is all people talked about on the way back. I look forward to more trips with you, try to bring some of my biking compatriots with me, too.
Thanks for a great tour and the road-side repair
Thank you for a wonderful vacation
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.
It is a very nice Island you have and thanks for sharing it.
We really enjoyed the freedom to tour Nova Scotia seeing what we wanted and without needing deadlines.
Another most excellent tour.
Truly an inspired and inspiring tour. Great scenery, every day was different – scenery, weather, terrain. What a nice group of people I have met. Thanks and good luck.
Well supported, well organized, well executed. Keep up the good work.
I truly hope everyone had as great a time as I did. It was by far the most fun I had on a bike tour.
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.
Spectacular… 3 years running! ..see you again next year!
It was a positive experience & the camping part worked out smoother than what I thought! I liked being part of a group , having some organized structure but yet being free to do what I wanted.
Trying to make everything work for people as long as it was within reason; friendliness & ease to approach; lots of heart and personal pleasure from all of you doing your best to make things work for everyone.
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.
