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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

It’s been years since I participated in the ACC Cape Breton tour, but I look back at it fondly.

I liked the fact that everyone can do the trip in their own way – no pressure to be anywhere and no competition. You can feel free to do what you can at your own speed.

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 remember the Cape Breton tour clearly. It was fantastic. I hope to do another tour with ACC one day… sooner than later.

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…

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.

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.

My first ride, Baja, Mexico was done in the 80’s. The second goal was the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. I rode this in July. The opportunity was Gary Conrod, (www.atlanticcanadacycling.com) who conducted a tour of the trail as part of his schedule of rides.
Gary runs well organized but hands off tours. He trucks your luggage, arranges for campgrounds, and supplies a simple route sheet. The rest is up to you. The cue sheet gives one word directions (left, right) at local landmarks. One day he used an actual sentence… “Left, Listen! We Said Left! Don’t Go Up The Hill”. You get the idea. A unique feature of the cue sheet is that it locates the first and last restaurant of the day and a likely stop for lunch (if they are open). And for those eating in camp, the location of a store where you may put your bagged purchase in a bin provided. Gary will then pick it up and bring it to camp for the end of the day. Ice cream is not a good purchase.

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.

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.

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.

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.
