I am a single guy who is on a day visit to PEI of HAL Maasdam on 26th August 2014. The ship is scheduled to dock at 08:00am and scheduled to depart @ 5pm.
I would like to do a bike ride and am happy to consider an organised and hosted day tour or hiring a bike and making my own way. I note with interest that a recommendation for the most scenic section of the Confederation Trail is:
Cycle the Very Best of the Confederation Trail - Taxi to Morell, cycle to St Peters and Greenwich National Park, return taxi (30.1km)
I am concerned about the cost as a single person for an each way taxi ride (in a vehicle equipped to take a bike) to get to the start and finish. Also was interested in feedback as to how long you feel to allocate for this trip as I would like to be back at the ship by 4pm for the 5pm sailing.
Whilst I appreciate a bike hire company's role is not to put ad-hoc groups together I was interested in an assessment as to whether there may be sufficient interest to link a small group of disparate riders together to help share the taxi costs.
Another question I had was an assessment of alternative scenic cycling route options near Charlottetown that would exclude the need to fund taxi transfers.
