We arrived in Halifax on a cruise ship and were met by Peter at the pier. We decided to research beforehand and book our own shore excursion rather than go through the cruise line. We were so happy we found Peter and Eastwind Cycle. This bike ride was a highlight of our vacation. The ride was absolutely gorgeous and lunch at The Deck at the end of the ride was delicious! We have never done organized bike tours before, but Peter gave us the bug...we hope to be back biking with Peter again!

We booked our ride with the owner Peter. He was VERY flexible for the time to start and the length we wanted to ride.He met 6 of us right on the pier as we got off our cruise ship. He drove us 45 minutes to St. Margaret's Bay were he fit us with helmets and bikes to our sizes. He explained were to ride and that he would ride ahead a short way in his van to point out areas that were great to stop and look at. He was always visible and if we needed him we were to signal him. We biked along the Bay over gentle sloping hills, stopping a few times. We made one stop at the Swiss Air flight #111 crash site memeorial. We had asked him to stop for food at a Fish place which he did. ( The Deck, which had the BEST seafood chowder and wonderful fish and chips ). We ate outside at tables with the view of the Bay in our site.We ran out of time so Peter returned us to the pier so we could board our cruise. We really enjoyed this trip and Peter was very helpful and friendly.

What a way to see the back roads of Nova Scotia. From the inns booked, the food eaten, to the roads biked. Extremely fun way for the family to travel. As many or as few km as desired while experiencing the quiet and scenic roads around the coast. Wonderful family trip thanks to Peter and his great plans. Highly recommended!

I have been on several bike trips in other parts of the world (Back Roads, Butterfield & Robinson) and was familar with high end operators. We were on a cruise and did a 1 day bike trip arond Halifax with Eastwind Cycle. Eastwind has great bikes (totally top of the line) and the biking in Nova Scotia was superb. It is the perfect place to see the world from a bike - and then find an amazing small local spot for lunch. Peter was a terrific 'toug guide' as well as he shared his knowledge and love of the area - so we were able to learn about the local sights and people as well as have a terriric ride. A+!

From the very first contact with Peter from Eastwind cycle, I had a good response and understanding of a group of friends travelling on board a cruise ship and visiting Halifax for one day. Peter could arrange a perfect and unique bicycle tour . He and his son were waiting for us at the pier to start a tour of the city followed by the one on bike We pleasantly enjoyed the beautiful coast scenery in a road with no traffic ,ending with delicious fresh lobster sandwiches and returning on time for our ship departure . Great day, great organization and very friendlyguides!
