HALIFAX AND FUNDY SHORES 2019
A multi-day self-supported bike tour starting and ending in Halifax Nova Scotia. We will cycle an average of 72 km per day through historic Nova Scotia visiting a UNESCO World Heritage site and some of the earliest European settlements in Canada. Fantastic panoramas as we ride along the Bay of Fundy shore and view the highest tides in Canada and the famous ‘tidal bore”.View the maps on Elbow Valley Ride With GPS.

We will enjoy overnighting at local BnB’s, cottages and hotels, but riders must be prepared to carry luggage between stops. So get out those panniers! No SAG Wagon. Cycling at this time of the year comes with the added benefit of reduced rates for accommodations. Also, less tourist traffic, so the roads are much quieter than during the summer season. Nova Scotia is actively pursuing cycle tourists and building rail trails, but riders should be comfortable sharing the road with other traffic.
This is a “credit card trip” so everyone will pay as we go. The estimated total cost including airfare is estimated to be CAD $2900. (table 2)
Riders must have a well maintained bike; rear and front lights on bike in case of fog or poor visibility; panniers to carry necessary items such clothing, toiletries, tools, rain gear and occasionally food for lunch. A cell phone is not necessary but would be useful.
There will be an information session early in January to discuss the trip and make any necessary changes to the plan. Every participant is encouraged to contribute to the planning. If you are interested contact Peter Thurston (403-280-9478) or Christine Grotefeld. (403-288-7803)
