Ride the Tide is an eco-cultural bike adventure that’s not to be missed.

Start at La Bikery before heading out on trails that hug the Petitcodiac River, famous for its Tidal Bore, and part of the UNESCO Fundy Biosphere Reserve. Your guide will fill you in on the culture and ecology of the area as you ride along.

A stop to meet a local storyteller will deepen your understanding of the region’s people and history. After that cycling works up an appetite, it’s time to stop at the Fundy Chocolate River Station where you’ll enjoy a local lunch on the deck.

Finally, upon your return, it’s time to join a local artist to create your own up-cycled bike art that’ll remind you of your time with the tides.

Tours start in July 2018. Follow the Ride the Tide Facebook page for updates
 

Open call for Petitcodiac River storytellers

This summer, Ride the Tide Bike Tours will deliver group tours along the Petitcodiac River, and we plan to go beyond the traditional interpretation experience. We are planning a range of fun-stops that provide interesting information, quirky local stories, and hands-on activities that involve all the senses: touch, smell, sight, and sound.

We’re looking for local folks with expertise in all facets of the Petitcodiac River: Indigenous, Acadian and European history; river ecology and geology; marine biology, etc. who can provide a memorable experience of our unique river. Tours will be held every Wednesday and Friday between July 4 and August 24. Storytellers (fun-stops) are needed for one 30-minute segment between 10 a.m. and noon. A $100 honorarium will be provided for a commitment of three tours.

If you have a story or activity to share and daytime availability this summer, please complete the Petitcodiac River Storyteller Form and we’ll be in touch with you.
