Atlantic Canada Trip

Come ride Atlantic Canada with your fellow New England Riders and enjoy friendship, great riding and of course food!

New Brunswick and Nova Scotia have great riding with spectacular water views. Be sure to visit Meat Cove and to take the scenic hike on Skyline Trail for unforgettable views (below.)

  1. Riders will ride the U.S. to Moncton Ride and the Moncton to Baddeck Ride on their own or with friends. Riders will do these rides on their own timetables and meet the group in Baddeck.
  2. The group will spend the main part of the trip (June 30 – July 5) together at the Cabot Trail Motel in Baddeck, NS. For this part of the trip, riders will ride the Cabot Trail Counterclockwise Ride, The Cabot Trail Clockwise Ride, the Bras D’Or Lake Ride, and the Lake Ainslie Glenora Ride (all rides below.)
  3. Riders will ride the Baddeck to Halifax Ride, the Halifax to Wolfville Ride, the Wolfville to Summerside, and the PEI Ride on their own or with friends. Riders will again be on their own timetable.

All posted rides are great and include hotel, restaurant, and scenic view suggestions.

The photo below is of an easy recommended hike with spectacular views. It would work well with the Cabot Trail Clockwise Ride:
