BNS is the provincial organization of cyclists in Nova Scotia. We are commuters, mountain bikers, racers, recreational riders and elite athletes, who work together to grow cycling in Nova Scotia. Our different sectors develop young athletes, collaborate with government and other organizations to make cycling safe and accessible province-wide, develop sustainable mountain bike trails and serve as the governing body for all cycling competition in the province. BNS is a volunteer organization. If you wish to help or have questions, please contact us !
