Prince Edward Island
Located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Prince Edward Island (PEI) is Canada’s smallest province in terms of land area and population. But it reaches above its weight in scenery and hospitality. Come ride it’s famous red soil and luxuriate in postcard-worthy coastal views and delicious seafood. This is the shortest segment of the Great Northern Bikepacking Route, but not one that should be raced through.
Generally, the riding on PEI is some of the easiest of the GNBR with a mixture of paved and gravel country roads and well maintained rail trail. But fickle Maritime weather can change the game, especially if wet conditions turn the red soil into peanut butter.
