What type of bike is recommended for the Confederation Trail? Is a road bike suitable or does one need a mountain/trail bike?
Thank you for your question about bikes on the Confederation Trail. I use my road bike on the trail but I find it's best to use a tire with a good tread. I know other cyclists use hybrid bikes which would also be fine. Mountain bikes aren't necessary but I'd recommend a mountain bike if you're venturing off the trail onto our red dirt roads.
Enjoy your cycling on PEI!
