Welcome to the Nova Scotia Ramblers Bicycle Club website! The Ramblers strive to be a very social, relaxed paced bicycle club; one that appreciates the exercise aspect, without the competitive stress in having to maintain pace lines. The distances are generally moderate, suitable for new cyclists as well as folks re-entering cycling after a period of absence. We look for scenic trails that are suitable for cycling as well as quiet back roads in beautiful rural settings. We tend not to ride in rain, as the trails can get soupy. And of course, we seldom pass a good café, chocolate outlet, winery..... you get the picture.
The Ramblers has been designed to be an adult club, as the trail rides, day tours and multi day camping events are centred on adult activities. Membership is open until June 15th annually to all residents of Canada. The fee set for 2012 is $35, which includes the $30 membership in Bicycle Nova Scotia (BNS) as well as the Canadian Cycling Association (CCA). Included in this fee is ride / tour/event liability insurance – for more detail see this summary of the insurance policy. If you hold a BNS membership, then the fees is only $5.
We welcome newcomers, who may “test ride” us up until June 15th for one trail or day ride (only); although waivers / applications need to be signed to ride with the Ramblers. We have many seasoned cyclists willing to share their knowledge on all aspects of cycling, camping and the like. Be sure to read "Your First Ride".
