Have you heard about the "Blue Route?" The Blue Route provincial cycling network will connect Nova Scotia’s communities through designated cycling routes on secondary highways with paved shoulders, low traffic volume roads, hard surfaced trails, and city streets. The concept of the Blue Route is based on the award winning Route Verte in Quebec, which brings in upwards of $200M in tourism revenue each year and is seen as one of the best active transportation networks in the world.
Once completed the Blue Route is comprised, it will provide a 3000km network of signed bicycle routes, connecting riders with communities across the province.
