Don’t care for the hassle of hauling your bikes? East Coast Glamping is gearing-up with Pedal & Sea to ensure your glamping packs can include bikes, hitches and everything you need to hit the happy trails.

Our favorite traffic jams are found while glamping. We call ’em ‘cycle jams’ and they look a little like this, with their sea of colourful metal and glampy baskets:

Here’s a few cycle routes for Nova Scotia Glampers this summer:

  2. Butter Trail:  View West at creamery June17.04 from Colchester.ca

    Make it a day and take your bikes to Nelson Memorial Park, a 47-acre day-use park near Tatamagouche. Picnic, explore, cycle and swim in Nova Scotia’s warmest waters. Just a little over 30 kms. from The Mermaid & The Cow Campground, this cycle route is an easy add-on to a day of exploring the Northumberland Strait and Seafoam Lavender Farm. See our Moonlit Meadows & Seafoam Breezes package on NovaScotia.com. The Butter Trail passes through this park and is great for cycling.

  3. Another route not far from glamping at The Mermaid & The Cow is a 20 km. cycle from Rte. 256 to Stellarton, mapped out by Kevin Mackenzie and hosting a little more elevation and challenge.
  4. The Atlantic Trail is a popular cycle path for doers & dreamers in Nova Scotia.

If you’re enjoying our surfing and glamping package, you can finish a day of riding the waves, cycling your bikes before heading back to camp at Porters Lake Provincial Park. Bikes and bike kits available for delivery at this campground via Pedal and Sea. Mention East Coast Glamping when reserving.
