Details of Cycle the Cabot Trail with Freewheeling Adventures, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia Bike Tours Details for Cycle the Cabot Trail with Freewheeling Adventures

Active Adventure

This is one of the world's greatest rides; one that all touring cyclists should have on their 'must-ride' list! The beautiful coast – the most dramatic in Nova Scotia - meets the breathtaking highlands in ways that make you appreciate both to the fullest and the scenic magnificence of the paved trail can be really savoured and fully appreciated at the speed of your bicycle. The landscape and the people may demonstrate to you why Nova Scotia's name means New Scotland. You will be able to explore the valley of the Margaree River, rich with salmon and its pursuit, to play golf on the famous Highland Links, and on some days to expand your rides onto beautiful wooded trails, all while staying at inns famous for their individuality and charm. Many find the highlight a ride through beech woods to salmon pools, where salmon sometimes leap on their way upstream, and you can swim in deep pools below clear waterfalls. The cycling, although manageable by most cyclists (and van-supported for the rest!) includes some challenging sections. Combining such awe-inspiring scenery, out-of–the-way charm, unusual inns, and exceptional cuisine makes this loop ride an exquisite experience you simply must have!

Typical Day

If you want to travel with van support and cheerful, caring guides, and have most of your meals included, a guided trip is the best choice for you. Your luggage is carried for you, and on most days, the guide(s) will pass you in the support vehicle frequently to offer you snacks, drinks, and opportunities to catch a lift. The groups usually congregate for picnic lunches and special affairs, but otherwise tend to spread out along the route during the day, each rider choosing his or her own pace. Because you will be sharing your holiday with other adventurers likely to have a few things in common with you, your evening dinners become enriched by shared stories and entertainment, and you may make friends who will share your future adventure plans.

Age range, type of group

All adventure prices are per person, and based on double occupancy. Single occupancy charges reflect the cost of having a room by yourself. If you prefer to share or to avoid the extra cost, and are joining an advertised departure, give us as much notice as you can, and we will do our best to match you with a roommate of the same gender. If you reserve at least 120 days in advance, and are willing to share a room, we will waive the charge even if we are unable to match you with a room-mate. From 120 to 60 days ahead, the charge will be reduced by 50%. Within 60 days, the single occupancy charge must apply until we are able to match you up. Any charge will be refunded if we are later able to match you up with a room-mate. Please note that where suitable shared occupancy is not available, a pro-rated single occupancy charge will apply. Please also note that private groups are not eligible for single occupancy exemption.

Sleeping and meals

Accommodations are high-end, well appointed inns, resorts, or hotels. We ensure that you will have a private bath, and aim to find the most unique, accommodating, comfortable accommodations available.

We provide excellent nutrition for hungry adventurers. Breakfasts are always included. On self-guided trips, we provide the information you need to make good lunch and dinner choices. On guided trips most lunches and dinners are included. We prepare picnics for you along the route, we provide healthy snacks for between meals, and we dine at the best restaurants we know, making exceptions only when the freedom to explore is the most appropriate option. We ask you for information about your dietary restrictions and preferences before you arrive. Vegetarians, seafood lovers, children, and discriminating palates can usually be well accommodated. If you have specific dietary needs, such as kosher or very restrictive diets, please ask before booking.

Referral Rewards
If you have referred new customers to book directly with us since your last Freewheeling Adventure, you are entitled to a reduced cost.

They apply to your next payment once they have confirmed a scheduled guided trip of five days or more. You can ask your referrals to tell us you recommended us, or you can simply give us their name and contact details yourself. Unless they are already on our list, we will send them our invitation, and once they book, can apply the credit to your next adventure. Please claim the reward when you reserve your next trip, or before your final balance is due.

Frequency Rewards
Once you have participated in any adventure, we will apply a $125 preferred guest discount on successive trips within three years
