The Tour - Halifax

Saturday, July 9

Join us when the 16th annual Heartland Tour gets underway in Halifax.  We'll start and finish at 1511 Purcell's Cove, the Ecole John William MacLeod Fleming Tower School (Appears as 159 Purcell's Cove Rd., but the new 1511 civic number is the same location as the former 159 - see map here).  Choose from two road ride options (51 or 19 km) which feature bike lanes in the busier traffic areas.  Unfortunately we will not be able to offer a trail ride or a family ride this year due to logistically difficulties. Walkers/hikers, travelling at their own pace will enjoy the peace and beauty of five kms within nearby Dingle Park.  At the end of your event you will enjoy the chance to win some prizes and a light snack.  It's all free!
