Blue Route Ride: October, 2018

Blue Route Opening & Ride:
Hantsport to Grand Pre

October 14, 2018

The Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (TIR), will be erecting Blue Route signs along a highway route between Hantsport and the Grand Pré National Historic Site. The signs mark this route as the latest addition to Nova Scotia’s growing provincial cycling network: The Blue Route. Over the coming years, this route will be expanded upon to connect Hantsport with the Town of Windsor and other provincial cycling routes across Nova Scotia.

The Ride

What it is: 

The ride will be a chance to cycle the new route as a group and to enjoy a relaxing ride with other interested community members.

How it works:

9:30am: Meet at the Hantsport Memorial Community Centre (6 Main Street, Hantsport). We will have a couple of speakers before the ride starts.

10:00am: We will leave as a group with a leader and a sweep.

The ride is 25.5km. We will be planning to arrive at Noggins Farm at approximately 12pm.

When we arrive at Noggins Farm, there will be a food truck available for anyone who wants lunch. We will then have a chance to sit down and talk about the ride. Bicycle Nova Scotia staff and board members will be present to answer any questions about the route or any other cycling related topics.

1:30pm: Ride leaders will be cycling back to Hantsport. All participants are invited to join us for the full trip or make other arrangements for themselves if they don’t want to make the return trip.
