A Cycling Paradise

Prince Edward Island is the perfect province to cycle. The Confederation Trail, which is Prince Edward Islands’ leg of the Trans Canada Trail, runs tip-to-tip from Tignish to Elmira. Including branch lines there are 400 kilometers of excellent rolled stone dust surface for cycling. Frequent villages along the way offer cyclists a convenient selection of accommodations, food, and services.

Helmets Mandatory

No matter what your game -- quiet rides in the country that provide frame after frame of breathtaking photographs, day-long tours that test skill and endurance, or bone-shaking terrain that will challenge both bike and rider, PEI is the destination of choice for die-hard and casual cyclists alike.

For touring enthusiasts, just get on your bike and start pedalling. The rolling hills, lush farmlands and postcard coastlines that keep our visitors coming back for more will reveal to you a whole new appreciation for your two-wheeling hobby.
