Nova Scotia Bike tour

Samenvatting

NS-002

Nova Scotia Bike Tour offers up yet another bike-it list destination to Nova Scotia, one of Canada’s three Maritime provinces. The Nova Scotia bike tour offers one of the top cycling destinations in North America with majestic ocean views and seafood to enjoy throughout the tour. We have incorporated healthy mileage, all the sights and several days along the majestic Cabot Trail into our Nova Scotia bike tour. It should be noted that Nova Scotians are exceptionally friendly to cyclists and most of the time give us the entire lane when passing from behind.

Routebeschrijving

Day 1 Marble Mountain to Glenora Distillery

48 mi./77km, 1,905 feet/581 meters of climbing.
After the morning meet and greet, we load up in the support vehicle for a short transfer from Halifax to the small village of Marble Mountain, Nova Scotia to start this remarkable week-long cycling tour. Day 1’s route is a gentle warm-up for the upcoming week, so the climbing will be minimal as we ride across the width of Cape Breton island to our destination of Glenora Inn & Distillery.

Day 2 Glenora Distillery to Chéticamp

68 mi/109 km, 2,610 feet/795 meters of climbing
Today is a longer day, so we will depart early from the Glenora Inn & Distillery making our way southeast around inland Lake Ainslie and then turn north towards the Gulf of St. Lawrence. We then follow the rugged coastline all the way to our destination of Chéticamp, Nova Scotia, our home for this evening.

Day 3 Chéticamp to Ingonish

standaard: 67 mi/107km 6,010 feet/ 1,832 meters of climbing
102 mi/164km, 8,730 feet/2660 meters of climbing
Today offers perhaps the most magnificent route for the entire week! We depart from Chéticamp and soon find ourselves within Cape Breton Highlands National Park and along a spectacular stretch of road known as the Cabot Trail. The Cabot Trail offers the most climbing of the tour along with possibly the best views and brightest fall colors. At the 12 mile point in the route there is an option to hike Skyline Trail offering perhaps the most iconic views in all of Cape Breton.
Those looking for a longer riding day can take a side trip up to Meat Cove, the most northerly community in Cape Breton and which is literally perched on the edge of a cliff. This is a challenging side trip where the climbs in the last part leading up to Meat Cove are steep and the last few miles are on a rough dirt road. However, your efforts will be rewarded with spectacular views and you can treat yourself to a bowl of chowder and a cold beer at the campground restaurant.
The Cabot Trail ride ends in Ingonish where we check into our accommodations.

Day 4 Ingonish to Baddeck

54 mi/87 km, 2,830 Feet/863 meters of climbing
Today we leave Ingonish and soon find ourselves tackling a 7-kilometer long category 3 climb which rewards at the summit with views of Cabot Strait. From the summit a screaming descent is enjoyed down to Cabot Strait and St. Anns Bay. Upon reaching Jersey Cove a short ride on the Englishtown Ferry is taken. From here we make our way to Baddeck, Nova Scotia where we finish our ride and check into this evening’s accommodations.

Day 5 ,Layoverday with optional activities

With a layover day in Baddeck, guests will have the opportunity to relax, sightsee the town, visit the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site, or tackle on-your-own adventures including kayak tours, sailing tours and other activities. For a relaxing day, guests may also want to book some time at the spa located on-site at the resort. NOTE: A loop ride of 20 to 80-miles exists on this day. Details to be posted soon.

Day 6 Baddeck to Normaway Inn

27 mi/44 km, 1,380 feet/421 meters of climbing
With a shorter ride on the agenda for today, guests can enjoy a relaxing morning at the resort before we depart late morning to embark on our ride. Our ride continues along the Cabot Trail, but instead of water views, we turn inland towards the center of Cape Breton island until we reach our destination at the Normaway Inn.

Day 7 Normaway Inn to Inverness

26 mi/42 km, 1,200 feet/366 meters of climbing
The last day of our Nova Scotia tour has arrived with another short ride on the schedule. From the Normaway Inn, we will pedal west roughly following the Margaree River through the Margaree Valley. Then the route turns southwest to end in the beautiful coastal town of Inverness. Here we will enjoy lunch and browse the local shops. Afterwards, we load the support vehicle and transfer back to Halifax to end our tour.
