One of the most popular destinations for North American motorcyclists is Nova Scotia and its famous Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island.

The book covers not only Cape Breton Island and the Cabot Trail but also the rest of Nova Scotia, as well as the neighboring provinces of Labrador, Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and eastern Quebec including the wild and wonderful Gaspe Peninsula. Each trip has a detailed route description, easy-to-follow maps, and unique photographs -- all brought to life by Gillis' informed and colorful narration.

Review:

"Motorcycle Journeys through Atlantic Canada is broken down into 33 trips covering Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward island, Nova Scotia Mainland, Cape Breton and Newfoundland and Labrador. Each trip is clearly described with easy-to-follow maps and over 300 wonderful color photos, which give the reader a good idea of what to expect. you get a sense reading the narrative that these are fantastic places to ride. Great roads, scenery, fresh seafood and no traffic to speak of - what's not to like?" - BMW Owners News



"If you're a regular reader of Roadbike, no doubt you've seen plenty of books from our friends at Whitehorse Press, whose renowned Motorcycle Journeys series has been chronicled in these pages ad nauseum for one simple reason;  they're so darned good.  Always insightful and easy to read, the series is written by riders, for riders. . . .If you want to ride past Maine, be sure and get your hands on Motorcycle Journeys Through Canada. . . .more than a ride through Nova Scotia, Gillis and Aiken cover Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, Labrador, New Brunswick, and eastern Quebec with the authority of riders who have ridden the roads." - RoadBikeMag.com


"(My) familiarity with the areas covered in the book lets me take a little closer look at what authors Rannie Gillis and Ken Aiken have to say. First of all, there's no question they've done their homework. The book includes most of the area's most interesting riding roads. Nova Scotia's route through Advocate/Parrsboro/Economy, New Brunswick's Hillsborough/CapeEnrage/St.Martins route and P.E.I.'s CapEgmont/Miminegash/NorthCape route are all examples of great motorcycling destinations you'd never hear about otherwise, except from locals. In fact, the closer I looked at this book, the more I recognized my favourite riding spots. . . . That provided some powerful motivation to try out the routes in the book I didn't already know. . . . Overall, this is a book I would rely on 100 percent for planning a trip. It's a worthy investment if you plan on riding through Atlantic Canada as a tourist, or even if you live in the area." - Zac Kurylyk, Editor, CanadaMotoGuide.com
