THOUSANDS TO ATTEND  IN JUNE

 

When Canada’s original five day motorcycle festival, ATLANTICADE, was born in 2007, organizers probably didn’t anticipate just how successful the event would be.  This year they celebrate their 7th anniversary anticipating the arrival of some 10,000 biking enthusiasts in Prince Edward Island June 27th to July 1st.

 This is the second year that ATLANTICADE will be held in Summerside, PEI and organizers are hoping that attendees will not only increase in numbers, but surpass last year’s mix of folks from ten Canadian provinces and nine American states.  

This is a labour of love for many of the organizers who describe it as a generic motorcycle event which welcomes all makes and models of bikes and those who ride them.  The common bond for riders and passengers is a love of motorcycling; be it a passion for sport bikes, cruisers, tourers, etc. all attend and enjoy Atlanticade!”

 There will be all kinds of activities and entertainment going on during ATLANTICADE, far to many to list here.  Check out their website (below) for more information. In the meantime here are a few highlights. 

 In 2013 there will be a focus on the “Everyday Heroes - A Salute To First Responders” that will feature displays and activities designed to bring awareness to the service of these men and women. Members of the Red Knights & Blue Knights will  host  three Island tours that will depart early mornings from festival headquarters. Other guided mini-tours will be hosted by local volunteers.  Members of the CAV organization will be front and center during the Red Friday Rally and Freedom Ride that will follow.  The Christian Motorcycle Association (CMA), the Canadian Army Veterans (CAV), and the Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers (CMC) will all be volunteering their members to assist in this year's event. 

  Dale Hicks “Lots of positive feedback on the fact we are located in PEI and plenty of interest in attending. So we are encouraged by the level of enthusiasm for the festival”.

Atlanticade riders cross Confedeation Bridge

 

BRIDGE APPEAL FOR LUCKY THOUSAND RIDERS

 One of the appeals of visiting Prince Edward Island is riding across Confederation Bridge, the “fixed link” that connects the province to the mainland.  The 13.8 km concrete structure that crosses Northumberland Strait in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence is one of the world’s unique bridges.

 To be able to cross it, along with some 1,000 others, as part of a parade of motorcycles that stretches almost end to end in both directions is an awesome experience that happened in 2012 during ATLANTICADE.  It was originally intended to be a one-time only event, part of celebrations marking the 15th anniversary of the bridge. However because of the huge popularity and excitement surrounding the evening cruise, bridge officials and Atlanticade organizers have come to an agreement to hold the activity again in 2013. In a survey conducted by Tourism PEI following the festival, the overwhelming highlight of the event was the Bridge Cruise.

 “The evening festivities will be pretty much the same as last year with food being served up between 6 pm and 8 pm followed by the departure across the bridge at 8:30 pm” says Dale Hicks, Atlanticade Chairman. “Of course there will be a fireworks display once again to put the icing on the cake so to speak”

 Those taking part on the cruise must be registered and there will a $5 charge per bike that will donated to the Atlanticade Charity Fund which supports organizations such as MADD, Special Olympics, Muscular Dystrophy, and the Boys & Girls Club.  The number of bikes taking part in the Cruise will be capped at 1,300, so do go to the website  www.atlanticade.ca and get your registration in.

 

 

Touring Atlantic Canada's Smallest Province

 

Wood Islands, PEI

Welcome to Motorcycle Prince Edward Island's home page.  Our website is designed to introduce you to one of the world’s great Islands where the riding is super, the people friendly and the services first rate.

 

Our web site resulted from the incredible reader interest in our print guide to motorcycling in Canada’s smallest province which we published for three years. In fact, your interest was so high that it became more than our small creative team could handle. Since 99% of the requests for the guide arrive via the internet, we decided to make our Guide immediately available to everyone - allowing us to reduce expenses and labour so that we can spend more time out doing what we love to do best!

 

Another reason for turning to the web is the ability it gives us to keep current with our events calendar, bring the latest news and advertiser specials, and even include input from readers.  These are exciting additional services!

 

 All pages of the web site are printable, as is our handy printable directory that will pack easily in your saddlebags.  As well, stop at any advertiser or Visitor Information Centre once you arrive in Prince Edward Island for a mini-directory and map - ask for Motorcycle Prince Edward Island.

 

Prince Edward Island, located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Canada’s east coast is connected  by bridge to New Brunswick, or by ferry to Nova Scotia and the Magdalene Islands, Quebec.

 

Our ‘roads less travelled’, beautiful scenery, active motorcycle community’s many events, and simply great accommodations, eateries, night spots, theatre, festivals, and more all combine to make Prince Edward Island a great destination. 

 

We do ask that you check out our advertisers and mention our name when you visit.  These folks welcome you to drop by during your tour.  They have supported our efforts to introduce our home province to motorcyclists everywhere.  We have been careful to select advertisers who offer quality service and products to ensure your stay is one to guarantee good times and memories that encourage your return.

 

 We urge you to explore the many great components of the Motorcycle Prince Edward Island website.  You may well be surprised at everything we have to offer!
