Comments – Cape Breton Island Bicycle 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.
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.
Your customers were all first rate folks and we made friends that we hope will continue to ride your routes.
Everything was so well organized and I felt safe and cared for throughout the entire trip.
My son and I just signed up for the Cape Breton Tour.We did the PEI tour two years ago and had a great time. We are a little worried about the mountains on this tour but we started our training yesterday. And it is good to know that Gary and his crew are only a phone call away.
We loved it. A simple inexpensive, no frills tour. Just what we were looking for.
I think the routes, the mileage, the sequence of the challenges, were all just right... At first, I was thinking the days were too short, but then I realized that not only was there plenty else to do, but there was lots of recovery time for the next challenge.
I thought the cooking format worked well. I had never done it that way before. You were well equipped, and I kinda enjoy the challenge of making a meal from what is. The potluck, especially, was very enjoyable...
I remember the Cape Breton tour clearly. It was fantastic. I hope to do another tour with ACC one day... sooner than later.
Campgrounds were good and the food system -- which we were hesitant about before the trip, not sure how well it would work -- actually was great. Great setup with the dishes and cooking tools, crate and cooler system, and daily grocery pickups.
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.
Finished the Cape Breton tour on Monday with a great group of folks. Thank you for a wonderful week of cycling.
We enjoyed our Liked the comprehensiveness of the way the tour was organized, the staff and the way the tour was supported. We had a great time, your staff is terrific, the days were well planned.
It was better than expected. Lots of support, camaraderie and amazing cycling!
Extremely well run tour. Rules to make it nice for everyone, but not in your face. This was one of my BEST vacations ever!
Thanks for another fantastic and memorable trip. You guys do a great job.
... an awesome support team. Everything was so well organized and I felt safe and cared for throughout the entire trip.
Congratulations on another fine trip. The tour allowed sufficient opportunities for additional mileage. The tour gives back more than what is paid for. Looking forward to next year if I can make it.
I'm on my fourth trip with ACC at the moment and I plan to do more. I like the way the tours work: riders get just what they need and are free to explore on their own. I also like the atmosphere which is relaxed and friendly. Highly recommended!
Spectacular riding and great company. I couldn't have imagined it better. Thank you for a great experience everyone. Great program and support; don't change a thing.
Your chosen routes clearly had scenic and low-traffic advantages.
Thank you all for a wonderful time I will never forget! It was a great time meeting and hanging out with each and every one of you.
Wow! How can we thank you enough for this life changing experience. You gave us such a gift! Thank you for being you!
Thank you, thank you, thank you…it was life altering!
Thanks for everything including all my questions. Thanks also for all the wonderful riding routes, especially the ride from Dingwall to Cheticamp.
This will be tour number 6 with you and all my memories of cycling with your company are wonderful. I look forward to cycling Cape Breton Island again with you and your staff. I'm trying to talk a few other friends in coming up for the tour but I don't think I'll have any takers...but you never know.
I definitely feel that I got my money's worth from the trip, and will probably do another one of your excursions sometime soon.
I'm always looking for ways to de-stress my life. For me, an adventure vacation is an amazing opportunity to meet people with similar interests and set life's worries aside. I kept in contact with my family but did not check my email - not even once.
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.
It's been years since I participated in the ACC Cape Breton tour, but I look back at it fondly.
I love that my pics are still up on the Cape Breton tour! Time of my life.
The group dynamics were the most important factor to me in having a good tour and they were really excellent. There was a positive supportive and hospitable energy on the whole tour. It feels wrong not to be seeing you all again! I'm certainly up for more ACC tours in the future. Peace, love, happiness...see you on the road.
Thank you for your fantastic support on our trip! We got a real taste of the hills of Cape Breton!
A great legacy Gary! Memories I will always treasure! See you on down the road…
The last eight days couldn't have been better. Grateful to all of you for the kindness, inspiration, hilarity, & rich memories
Thanks for making the biking so much easier. Great routes. I’d like to do another tour with you another time.
I did a circuit of Cape Breton Island with this company. One of the most memorable trips of my life.
Been There...Done That - ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!! Thank you Atlantic Canada Cycling!!!
Had a blast. Good luck and see you again!
Thanks again – it was far beyond what we hoped for. The crew was wonderful. The sag wagon was always where I needed it.
I have been on Gary's Cabot Trail ride sixteen times going back to 1992. I went on the Gaspe Tour two summers ago. Cape Breton is a gem.
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.
The tour was great - the maps and route planning were exceptional.
I hope you are well & you have the Best Cycle Touring Organization out there.
I just want to let you know what an amazing experience the trip was. I was so impressed at the support and the patience you both had for myself and everyone else on the tour. That was the best week of vacation for me ever.
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.
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.
Beautiful landscapes, good exercise, and meeting nice like-minded people. Cape Breton blew my expectations away with the landscape and elevation. Very fun, beautiful and GREAT exercise.
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.
