Many people come to Prince Edward Island to cycle the Confederation Trail. Some are ambitious enough to cycle tip to tip. Even fewer are ambitious enough to go tip-to-tip-to-tip, making the return trip by bicycle to retrieve their vehicle.
No matter how much cycling you plan to do, come prepared. Get a cycling guide. If you have a cycling guide, check the date on it. The cycle guides usually come out a bit later than the other publications – If you have last year’s guide, then pick up a new one when you get here. If you have not seen the guide, check it out online.
The trail is surfaced – that does not mean paved. It is the stone dust and cinder bed from the old railway line. Once the railway became obsolete in PEI, they decided to rip up the rails and turn the rail bed into a cycling trail. I am really glad for that because it gives us a good way to get some exercise.
