Bike and Beach Trip Option - $100

The Post-Congress event will consist of a bike trip along protected PEI trails and coastline.

  • Attendees will be bussed from Charlottetown to Mount Stewart, the start of our ride.

  • There we will have lunch* consisting of Lobster Rolls and Raspberry Cheesecake.

  • Next we will ride for approximately 2 hours to a little-known beach, where we can hang out and enjoy the sun. There’s also a nice little lighthouse within walking distance.

  • Next we will ride thru Morell then along the PEI coastline, ending in St. Peters. Supper* in St. Peters will consist of Fried Fish/Scallops/Clams & Fries with more Cow’s Ice Cream for dessert.

  • The evening will end with a bonfire at Greenwich Beach before being bussed back to Charlottetown. A great way to end the Congress.

  • Note that electric-assisted bicycles are available for those who haven’t ridden a bike in a while. To ease your mind, this won’t be a Tour de France. It will be much more relaxed and accommodating for all ages.

For those not interested in biking, attendees can still participate in everything else mentioned above (i.e., beach, lunch, supper, bonfire). Here attendees will be bussed to Greenwich Beach, which is part of the Prince Edward Island National Park.
