Biking to Blissville: A Cycling Guide to the Maritimes and the Magdalen Islands


     Over highways and byways and converted railway roadbeds, Biking to Blissville gives maps and precise directions for about forty bicycle rides through the most scenic areas of Maritime Canada.  Most of the trips are loops. Each leads from a country inn, motel, or campground through the uncrowded countryside, and author Kent Thompson has tested them all for fun, safety, and degree of difficulty.  Thompson also suggests accommodations that fit cyclists tastes and purses, and the vagaries of the weather, from rustic campgrounds to opulent country inns, from old-time sporting camps to cozy bed-and-breakfasts.

In Biking to Blissville, Kent Thompson leads his readers over highways and byways, giving precise directions and detailed maps for 35 of the most scenic cycling routes in eastern Canada.  And Thompson has travelled them all — from the borders of New Brunswick to Québec’s Magdalen Islands, along the shores of Nova Scotia and to the ends of Prince Edward Island.  Most of the rides are loops, and each one leads from a country inn, motel or campground through beautiful, uncrowded countryside.  Whether long or short, easy or difficult, each route has been Thompson-tested for enjoyment and challenge.
