Cycling Nova Scotia, in partnership with Lacey Mines Campground and Hazlehurst Consulting are bringing a cycling experience like no other this September!

Inspired by the serene beauty of the breathtaking basin in Nova Scotia and the rolling hills of Lunenburg County, we’ve crafted a collection of unforgettable cycling experiences. Whether you prefer leisurely journeys or crave exhilarating adventures, our routes promise to unveil the natural splendor and charm of this remarkable region. Discover hidden gems, savor panoramic vistas, and immerse yourself in the tranquility that defines Nova Scotia’s coastal and countryside allure.

Whether you’re gearing up for a season-ending challenge or simply eager to explore, we’ve curated two unforgettable two-day rides for adventurers seeking a memorable cycling experience. Embark on our 96km or 152km routes, meticulously crafted to showcase the best of Nova Scotia’s landscapes.

Kick off your journey in Hubbards, strategically situated for exploring the charming Aspotogan loop and beyond. Day 1 offers two thrilling options: the Grande route spans 120km, featuring stunning coastal views and the rugged allure of Lunenburg County, while the Classic route covers 65km through the salty aired coastline and historic villages. Day 2 has both groups riding through the town of Chester along the water and onto the Dynamite Trail for a forested and adventurous ride back.
