posted Dec 5, 2015, 7:32 AM by Mark Beaver

Randonneurs Nova Scotia is pleased to announce the route of our 2016 1000 km brevet.  This year’s 1000k is called the “Northern Nova Scotia 1000k”.  Link to the route is

The ride is scheduled for July 9-10-11th.  We’ll head out of Halifax/Dartmouth and cross the province to the Bay of Fundy, and ride the Noel Shore – home of the world’s highest tides – to Truro, then follow the opposite shoreline through Five Islands to Parrsboro, then head north to Amherst and cross into New Brunswick to Sackville and to Moncton/Dieppe – where we will spend our first night’s rest.  Then Day Two heads over to Shediac to the scenic Northumberland Strait, which we will follow back into Nova Scotia and ride the shoreline through Wallace and Tatamagouche to Pictou and New Glasgow to Antigonish, where we will spend our second night.  Day Three crosses the province again to the scenic Eastern Shore, riding through Sherbrooke to Sheet Harbour and back into Dartmouth again.

This ride promises to have some spectacular coastal scenery and comfortable sea breezes.  As with our previous 1000’s, this ride will have bag drops at both night’s motels, and we will have supper food and breakfast food at the motels waiting for your arrival.

If you would like to be kept informed of updates for the NS 1000k, please email to have your name put on the “interested” list.  In early June we’ll finalize all arrangements to book accomodations and bag drops.

Looking forward to a great 2016!
