Supported Independent Cycle Tours of Prince Edward Island

Our tours offer unparalleled flexibility for almost all levels of cyclist! There are no guides, groups, locked itinerary or pre-set dates. Stop, eat and cycle when and where you wish. We'll transfer your luggage and if a mechanical problem arises, we'll immediately be on our way. We provide professional equipment (view typical tour bike ), routes are well planned and established, your meals are near your accommodations and accommodation is at select B&Bs and Inns. Travel at your pace with our intimate knowledge of our Island home.

Typically, we begin in Charlottetown with professional outfitting, a short tour of the Island's capital and accommodations in our capitol city. You will then cycle to our quiet eastern coast visiting Montague's waterfront and picturesque Panmure Island. From there you have a choice of cycling to Souris and the "singing sands" of Basin Head or to St Peters and the unique sand dunes of our National Park before returning to Charlottetown. Or, if you prefer, you can visit both Souris and St Peters enjoying both destinations. You'll return to Charlottetown by cycling the Confederation Trail, encountering quaint fishing villages, lighthouses, farmland, beaches, friendly people and the peace and serenity that Prince Edward Island offers.
