Your Support Vehicle
We like to think of the support vehicle as a beacon of comfort just ahead. It’s stocked with refreshments, fruit, and snacks for that added boost between meals. You can even keep the driver company on the days when your saddle “catches fire.” When time permits, the van will race ahead to ensure your luggage is waiting for you at the inn when you arrive.
If you should need assistance and the van is not around, just stay with your bike near the side of the road so the driver can find you. We sweep the route often but, occasionally, the van might be needed elsewhere. Be sure to get the mobile numbers from your guides at the start of your tour, and should you need their assistance, they’ll make every effort to get to you lickety-split!
Our Tour Leaders
Our tour leaders have one goal—to make your Pedal & Sea Adventure the experience of a lifetime. In addition to being excellent guides, you’ll soon discover that they’re also entertainers, historians and—best of all—friends.
You may, of course, bring your own bicycle. But if you decide not to, we have a well-maintained fleet of lightweight rentals available including touring road bikes, aluminum road bikes, carbon road bikes, and aluminum, lightweight hybrids. We even have helmets available, but please let us know that you need one before leaving home. If you already have a love-hate relationship with your own bike saddle, bring it along and we’ll install it at the start of your adventure. (This goes for your pedals as well!)

Upon receipt of your deposit we will send you a confirmation packet, including your receipt, weather report, what to bring, reading suggestions, bicycle packing techniques, and any other information we deem necessary to help make this trip as fulfilling as possible.
Registration & Payment
You may register for the trip by returning the reservation form by mail or fax (902 858 2004) or by phoning 1 877 777 5699. A deposit of $750 Cdn per person is required. We ask you to pay this by cheque made out to Pedal and Sea Adventures Inc. or by Visa or MasterCard. The balance will be due forty-five (45) days prior to departure. Unless notified otherwise, we will process this balance on the credit card we have on file. If sending a cheque, please allow 10 days for the mail. Cancellation within 45 days of the starting date requires full payment of the tour cost. We recommend you purchase cancellation insurance.
For our American guests paying with credit cards, please keep in mind that although we are able to quote you in US$, we are a Canadian company and need to process all credit card payments in Canadian dollars. In order to do this, we process the US dollars to Canadian dollars based on the exchange rate on that particular day. It usually takes about 3 days before your US bank posts the transaction and because of the huge fluctuations in the US currency these past few months, there is sometimes a discrepancy between the amount we have charged and the amount that is posted on your statement. This could, of course, be in your favor, if the US dollar has increased. We cannot be held responsible if the opposite does occur.
Reservations—before & after the trip
Let us know if we can help in suggesting and securing lodgings before and after your tour. Credit card details will be required to guarantee your reservation(s).
We have gone that extra mile to ensure that the accommodations we have selected for your tour meet our standards for excellence. Whenever possible we select rooms with either queen or twin beds and ensuite bathrooms. If you are traveling alone, and have given us at least 60 days notice, we’ll make every effort to provide a roommate so you do not have to pay a single supplement. A single traveller requesting a single room will be charged the full single supplement. It may be necessary from time to time to secure lodgings at another hotel or inn, but our usual high standards apply.
Cancellations & Refunds
All cancellations must be received in writing. Our refund policy is based on the date the cancellation is received in our office. Should you find it necessary to cancel your reservation at least sixty days prior to departure you will receive 50% of your deposit. Cancellations received between 60 and 45 days from the tour date will forfeit deposit. Cancellations within 45 days require full payment of the tour cost. We recommend you purchase trip cancellation insurance.
