Join BNS

Join BIcycle Nova Scotia

Check out our membership plans and their benefits below

(Please note that memberships are not a 12-month membership, but are for the calendar year. This is to do with the system we use for signing up.)

General Member – Registration will open soon!

We recognize that our members want to get the most value for their dollar, so we have developed a graduated pricing system that reflects the time of year you sign up as a member. Our new insurance policy covers cyclists riding anywhere in Canada, at anytime, for any type of cycling. If you ride throughout the winter as a commuter, we highly recommend getting a full year membership. If you are a fair weather rider, you might consider starting your membership in April.

Prices for General Membership (Expire on Dec 31, 2018)

January 1:                 $40

April 1:                      $30

July 1:                        $20

October 1                 $10


  • Insurance that covers you while riding anywhere in Canada, at anytime, for any type of cycling
  • Allow you to join many of our BNS affiliated clubs (extra costs might be involved depending on club).
  • Part of a 1700 member (and growing!) provincial organization that promotes all thing cycling.
  • Participate in the development of cycling within Nova Scotia by having the option of participating in various sectors that BNS works in.
  • Keep in touch for news and happenings by receiving our monthly newsletters.

General Member with a racing/technical license (cost varies, based upon your age and type of racing chosen $30-$125) – Registration will open soon!

Choose this option for the benefits of General membership, plus the ability to race in provincially sanctioned races (road, MTB, downhill). You can only participate if you have a race license or choose what is called a “One Event Membership”. This option is available if you are new to the racing scene, and are not sure if it’s for you or not. You have the chance to purchase an OEM for $25, which will provide the same coverage as a race license, but is only valid for that one event. So if you decide that racing is your thing, then the purchase of a race license will allow you to participate in further events, without having to pay the $25 OEM fee each time.

Cost for a license is based upon your age. For youths under 15, it’s $30 for the 2017 calendar year. For adults it is $100 – $125, based upon your type of racing you do.

Women on Wheels (W0W)  – Registration will open soon!

Please see the details for General Membership (above) regarding pro-rated pricing arrangements. All WoW members get the same insurance and benefits as the General Members.

** Note: You will be taken to our a site called ZONE 4. If you need any help in the registration process, or if you have any questions, please contact Allan Scott, the registrar.
