Joining the Club

<<"Who is in charge of the website? Becoming a member should not be this difficult.">>

<<"While the schedule layout is quite nice, yes, it does make it difficult to become a member. Perhaps all the info could be put on the membership form, if not the website.">.

The club executive produces the membership form to put up on the site. It looks like this year they have dropped all information on how to contact and join the the club on the document. They have the original and since it is a legal document they have the responsibility to edit it. If they produce another one I can put it up. Until and if they do, I have put up the club address on all footers of the site.

Message I’ll be visiting this beautiful Province on July 03 2014 again to add Halifax to St. John’s to my already completed ride from Vancouver to Halifax.
I’d very much appreciate if you could get me in touch with any of your members who are familiar with the various alternate routs that would get me to North Sydney in the most comfortable way. I have been cycling mostly by myself and enjoy meeting people the most. A few tips or sharing of some cycling experience riding this section of the country is all I’m looking for
Please visit my website http://helpcambodianschool.org/site/ for more info about me and why I’m committed to cycling.

Thanks in advance for any help

  6. Just wanted to thank Terry for making the wed morning rides a go this year! I so enjoyed the ones i got to go on! WTG terry!

  7. I have come across your website through Velo Cape Breton. A very nice site, indeed.
    I have noticed, in some photos, that you have members traveling on tandems. My wife and I are interested in starting tandem bicycling. However, we have not seen any tandem bicycles in bike stores and, from reading on some tandem bicycle sites, we realize that the geometry, sizing and fitting are more complex than on a single bike.

    I have been researching Santana and Da Vinci models (Da Vinci has independent coasting system-how important is it?).

    If any of your members could supply advice on any of the above, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Michael

  8. We want to thank Kim and Ralph for leading us on a very enjoyable ride to Laurie park June 27, 2013 on short notice, during our brief visit from Montreal. We are also grateful to Terry for all the information about cycling around Halifax and for getting us in touch with Kim. Cheers – John and Sean

    • Thank you i had a very nice time and you are more than welcome to ride again sometime with us! Tc kim

  9. I will bicycling in Belgium and the Netherlands this.June. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who knows how to obtain cycling maps or has cycled in these 2 countries.

  10. I checked out the Velo site and OMG how I miss you all so very much.

    Just wanted to send a big hello from the west coast and thank you for all your hard work. If it was not for all the volunteers that help make Velo Halifax run smoothly I would not have any of my wonderful cycling memories. As I look at some of my photos it reminds me of some of the best years of my life!

    Miss you all and hope to be able to make it back home and join you on a tour soon.
    Safe cycling X0X

  11. Have a good season Velo Halifax. It’s good to see the founders (old timers) still kicking around the club. Gary, Mark and Paul go back to the mid 1980’s! Take it easy on them.

  12. Hi, I’ll be in town visiting family and attending a conference May 10-19 and would like to ride with the club. Are non-members able to ride with your club? I think I have access to a ‘very’ basic bike. I also ride a recumbent trike. Is there anyone in the club with that rides a trike? I’d love to introduce my family to this triking as well. Please let me know. Thanks Kiersten

    • Non-members can come on a few rides. Helmets are required in Nova Scotia. One member rides a recumbent trike. She comes out a lot but I suppose she judges where each ride is going.

      • Thanks for the reply, I’ll look forward to it. Hope I can get out and maybe run into the trike rider as well :-)

        • I ride a ride a recumbent trike & Gary’s accurate in saying that I see where the ride goes before I ride with the group.

  13. It is something to look forward to when you retire. Mid-week does not have the traffic, cycling can actually be enjoyable in the city.

    • Or when you work shift work and have to work every 2nd weekend so you are off every 2nd wed but not every weekend so i think this is a great great thing to start!
