The Cabot Trail is one of the world’s greatest rides; one that all cyclists should have on their “must-ride” list! The beautiful coastline meets the breathtaking highlands in ways that make you appreciate both to the fullest, while savouring the magnificence of the paved trail at the speed of your bicycle.


Named for famed navigator and explorer John Cabot, the world famous Cabot Trail is a 300 kilometre paved roadway that hugs the mountainous northern shore coastline of the Island. For most cyclists, the loop ride around the Trail begins and ends in Baddeck.

The Cape Breton Highlands National Park straddles the upper reaches of the Island, roughly 85 km north of Baddeck via the small communities of Chéticamp (on the west coast) or Ingonish (on the east coast). The road around the Trail is, for the most part, well-maintained.

Today it is your turn to get this opportunity to join and get the Cabot Trail off your “Bucket List”:
