Bicycle Nova Scotia is set to release a new guidebook for people looking to explore Nova Scotia by bicycle. The book is a result of an increasing need for guidance on where to cycle in the province, with more people getting interested in cycling, and with Nova Scotia increasingly becoming known as a place to explore by bicycle.
The guidebook includes a large-scale fold-out provincial map, outlining all106 routes, indexed with easy access to relevant information and stats for each route, including length, estimated ride time, difficulty, elevation change, and more. Detailed descriptions are included for each route along with points of interest to visit along the way. The book also includes features on Destination Trails, the Cabot Trail, and routes suitable for cycling with kids. This easy-to-use resource will help make cycling accessible by allowing people to choose cycling routes they feel comfortable with and that align with their travel plans.
“Researching this book was an amazing opportunity,” says Adam Barnett, the author of the guidebook. “The routes were chosen by engaging with the local cycling community to learn about their favourite places to ride in Nova Scotia. It is a privilege to be able to share so many incredible routes spread all around the province. It is our hope that this book will introduce people to new rides and to help bring more awareness about Nova Scotia as a cycling destination.”
To help keep the book current, and to align with how cyclists use phones and GPS devices, all route information is also available electronically through the BNS website for easy downloading to the device of your choice. This allows for the cycling community to comment on any issues with the routes that people should be aware of and for Bicycle Nova Scotia to update the routes as necessary.
Where to Cycle in Nova Scotia is published by Nimbus Publishing and will be officially launched on July 14 at 1:00 PM in Wolfville at the Front Street Community Oven in the Robie Tufts Park (117 Front Street). During the event the book will be available for purchase from the local book store, the Box of Delights, oven-baked pizzas will be served, and there will be a presentation from the author. The book will be available in bookstores and bike shops across the province, as well as online. Revenue from the book sales will support future cycling initiatives of Bicycle Nova Scotia.
