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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
