    My aunt is an artist in Nova Scotia and she’s pestered me for years to get across and ride the trails, there are a few guide books she sent me on the trails in the area (check on amazon) and the scenery is drop dead stunning, not to mention the 100’s of miles of trails that look **** amazing.

    Lucky bugger!.

    I’ve cycle toured in Nova Scotia a couple of times – as well as going there on business (Kentville).

    We visited Valley Stove & Cycle Store in Wolfville (about 50km from Greenwood) and I’m sure they will point you in the right direction.
    While in Wolfville we bumped into a very large group of mtbers returning from a night ride (and this was back in 2000!) and the area had hosted national XC events.

    PS: Take a snow shovel.
    My photo album is here if you’re interested: https://picasaweb.google.com/112339208260728332643/NovaScotia2000?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCLH–4_N_dbl-AE&feat=directlink

    Lots of dirt roads and ice cream.

    Thanks for the photo’s! Nice trip from teh look of it.

    Don’t think the riding will stop me going… Can’t be any worse than lincoln to be honest!

    Looking at a move to NS in the near future. We’ll be based in Greenwood and i’m hoping there’s a few trails within riding distance, as well as some more stuff within a couple of hours drive.

    Seen the routes on MTBR, but surprised there’s very little on endomondo…

    Anyone had experience of the area?

    I really like the Greenwood/Wolfville area.

    But do check the weather before you go- it gets extremely hot in the summer and has a ridiculous amount of snow in the winter (Which lasts for 6 months or more!)

    I’m happy about the weather, told the missus it gets hot and cold and she’s not that bothered (She’d move to siberia to leave lincoln!)
