The 2016 Heartland Tour Short Ride

Also known as the “coffin up a storm” ride.  This is a wonderful event that promotes physical activity to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer.  They hold bike rides and walks in eight communities all over Nova Scotia for about a week every year.  This year is rather special, as it is the 10th anniversary!
