You are in the right place to register for the 18th annual Heartland Tour. 

We are now heading for Participant 1500 - is it you?

Please note that our visits to Amherst and Truro are on the same day - you'll have to choose between two great events that day.


You can register others however we ask that you not register anyone under the age of 17 unless you are that child's parent or guardian.

At the end of the process please tell us you are not a robot (wait briefly for your answer to be confirmed).

Then click the register button and you are registered.  You can then proceed to register another person.


The first, the 100th, the 500th, the 1000th, etc. person to register wins their choice of a 2024 Heartland cycling jersey or a $50 grocery card.


Plan to arrive early to ensure you receive your free t-shirt  - supply is limted.  If you already have one of our shirts in good condition we ask that you not claim another shirt this year - thanks for your help in keeping our costs manageable.


We strongly encourage you to pre-order our 2024 jersey as supplies will be limited.  The cost is $80.  If interested contact Jim at jdvance49@gmail.com for an image and size chart.  Pre-ordering closes May 15.


We know they are our best friend but not everyone is comfortable around other people's pets.  Please don't bring your dog to a Heartland walk or hike.   Registered service dogs are permitted upon presentation of the appropriate documentation to that effect.  Thank you for your understanding.


We are ebike friendly!


The county that has the greatest proportion of its population participating in a Heartland Tour event will be declared Nova Scottia's Most Active County.  $2500 will be awared to a recreational trail project in that county.
