Nova Scotia Tour with Adventure Cycling
« on: August 09, 2021, 02:37:32 pm »
Hi all,
My husband & I are considering signing up for this Inn to Inn tour in Sept 2022.  Anyone done it either with AC or on your own?  Impressions? Recommendations?  We are strong, experienced recreational cyclists in our mid-60's.  We have done a lot of touring on our own, but would be first time with AC & I understand this will be only the second time they have offered this tour.
Thanks!
Rosemary

2 Years ago I did a tour in the area, left from the Via Rail station in Sackville NB, used the shuttle provided on the Confederation bridge and spend several days going thru Prince Edward Island.  Then crossing the Ferry to Pictou, then to Halifax.  Unfortunately my rear derailleur stripped out of the hanger just before the ferry and I had to rent a Uhaul to Halifax.  I did this tour solo inn to inn and planned it.  My route was quite hilly, not much traffic but the roads rarely had shoulders.  I also did another trip many years ago that was to the southern end of Nova Scotia. I mention this as both tours were around the same time of year and the temperatures were very different.  Both were around July/August,  The southern tour the temperatures at times were in the 40's at times while the temperatures on the more recent tour was much hotter with it near 90+ at times.

On the last tour I took the Via Rail train from Toronto to Montreal and then connected to the Via Rail Maritime train.

I haven't done that particular tour in Nova Scotia, but did do several week-long tours there (http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/georgeNS2018 and http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/George2010). The area is lovely, and the people are wonderful. I've also done multiple ACA Inn-to-Inn tours, and recommend them.

Note that NS does have some real hills.
