Biking in Prince Edward Island is easy (no hills), safe (bike paths everywhere), and it’s perhaps the best way to discover all the secrets of this island on your own schedule.
If you’re like me you didn’t pack your bike on your trip to PEI, in which case I suggest heading straight to MacQueen’s Bike Shop in Charlottetown to rent one. From there, you’re in a perfect position to jump on the Confederation Trail. Through MacQueen’s you can also book a transfer for you and up to 11 in your party. But not so fast! You need some food in your belly, and in my experience the best nutrition for a long bike ride is ice cream. Pedal down a few blocks to the waterfront and get yourself a giant waffle cone of Messy Bessy at the world-famous Cow’s Creamery.
