August 24 @ 8:00 am - August 28 @ 5:00 pm

Welcome to the fourth edition of the Tip 2 Tip Nova Scotia!

The Tip 2 Tip is a 1000km (or slightly more), single-stage, self-supported, endurance ride from one end of Nova Scotia to the other. The ride is done solo or in pairs, and riders have 5-days to complete the route.

What is self-supported?

  • No support car, water drops, or outside support of any kind – it’s all up to you to get to the finish!
  • In other words, riders must be fully self-sufficient and not receive any private assistance. All food, lodging, etc. must be commercially available to all riders.

There is no set route, however, there are seven unmanned checkpoints each rider must pass on their way to Meat Cove. Riders will receive the checkpoints on August 23, 24-hours in advance of the start. They can plan their routes accordingly. Riders leave from The Hawk Beach, Cape Sable Island at 08:00 August 24.

The rider manual will outline all the nitty-gritty stuff you should know about the event.

Fees breakdown:

  • T2T Registration fee: $75 (covers costs to run event)*
  • Tracker fee: $80 USD (tracker rental and mapping fee); $30 USD if you own a tracker (mapping fee)**
  • Cycling Nova Scotia Membership: one-year $50, one-time event membership fee $15; $0 if you already have a CNS membership for the year. The membership provides insurance coverage for your rides all year and discounts at partner bike shops.

*Registration fee is non-refundable. It can be transferred to the following year. Please contact [email protected] if cost is a barrier to riding.

**Trackers are required. They are supplied and supported by Follow My Challenge USA.

Please note: In order to ride, you must fill out the Follow My Challenge form to either register your tracker, or rent one, prior to the start. If you do not have a tracker rented or registered by August 17, 2024, a week before the event, you will be taken off the rider list, even if the T2T registration fee has been paid.

Registration closes Friday, August 9, 2024. Limited tracker availability; registration may close sooner if we run out.

Last-minute registration is possible – send an email to [email protected], or contact on social media platforms (Instagram/Facebook).
