Welcome to the Cabot Trail Biker Web Site
First off, it’s awesome that you are considering the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia for your motorcycle miles. There are endless places to see on our bikes, and it is pretty damn cool that you’re coming here. Nova Scotia has some features that make it a great place to ride a bike, and I’m going to give you some tips on how to enjoy your trip the best.
Covid-19 Update, June 23, 2020
I know a lot about the Cabot Trail by motorcycle, and use that knowledge learned by myself, but mostly the experiences of other riders shared with me, to help make you have a great trip. No one pays me anything, even the businesses I list on the site. It's just honest advice. That said, my opinions are my own and if you want to hear from the horse's mouth on what Canada and Nova Scotia are saying about the Pandemic, please go to their sites. I will change this message, of course, when things change. However, right now, based on the regional travel restrictions in place, I don't expect there to be one single visitor from outside Atlantic Canada allowed to enter Nova Scotia this summer. If you are planning a trip here, even as late as August, I suggest you choose a plan 'B' motorcycle ride, in case I'm correct. You know how much I love to promote how special the riding here is. I'm just telling you what others aren't saying. The USA/Canada border remains closed until July 21st. Officials say they will assess at that point. I can tell you now that the New Brunswick Premier will not be letting anyone into NB, so NS is out of the question even if the border did open. As of today, NB will let people go straight through to Nova Scotia. When you are here, you have to self-isolate for 14 days before you start your trip. I'd wait for 2021. I have an email list specific for those with 2020 Bike trip plans. I forward all restriction lifting updates to that list. Just email me.
Back to normal info...
First, let’s get to know Nova Scotia, in biker terms. Peak riding season is from May 1st to September 30th, but locals rip around on the good days outside of that. The province (there are 10 provinces in Canada – same deal as a state in the US) is almost an island. There are less than a million residents, so we’re not talking a crowded place. If you are looking for major city lifestyle partying…head to Halifax. Zero bars, but about two hundred pubs. Every town in NS has a pub or two…or it isn’t a town…so don’t worry about getting thirsty. Canada’s major highway is the Trans Canada. Stay off that the best you can – we’ve got roads that circle the entire province. Each has a name…for example, I live on the Sunrise Trail.
If you choose Nova Scotia for your visit, browse around and let me help you out. The information on this site is not free – you’ve got to promise to buy one of my creations: The Original Cabot Trail Biker T-Shirt. It’s a big price to pay, because the shirt is sold at one location in the world only – at the very end of Nova Scotia! So if you come visit, please buy one of the shirts I made, and drop me a line to tell me if you had a good time. If there is anything I can do to make your trip better while on your Nova Scotia bike vacation, give me a call and I’ll help the best I can. Due to some riders missing the Coastal Restaurant, all my items are available on this website. Honor system, please do not purchase a shirt if you haven't ridden the Cabot Trail by motorcycle... or don't wear it till you make it here!
Safe and Fun Miles!
I’ve got kids so don’t call me when you’re drunk at 2am
