The bicycling competition will feature two days of Criterium, Stage and Road Races. This event is held in conjunction with Bicycle Nova Scotia and Highland Bicycling Shop, Main Street, Antigonish. The routes for the two day bicycling event are indicated on the two images below.
A criterium is a bike race consisting of several laps around a closed circuit. Riverside Speedway has provided their track to test muscle and determination. The new road route will see cyclists leave Riverside to race through the two roundabouts on Route 7 before the riders will swing to Route 4 to pass Brierly Brook and out to Marshy Hope before returning along the route to Riverside.
