Welcome to the Lost Shores of Guysborough! Largely undiscovered, this hidden corner of Nova Scotia has a delightful 85 km low traffic oceanfront loop connecting over 20 fishing communities. We have used this loop to create the 50, 90 and 120 km rides and added a delightful 35 km loop and a 30 km mountain bike rail trail loop. That’s 5 ride choices, something for every fitness level.

Be a part of this rich history and join us for the second annual Lost Shores Gran Fondo Saturday Sept 9, 2017. September is the perfect time to ride the Lost Shores, best weather yet almost no traffic. Registration is now open so you can join a few hundred cyclists to experience the stunning scenery and amazing hospitality of Guysborough’s Lost Shores up close. Follow us on Facebook for regular updates and news.

The Rides

Tickle Loop – 120 km

We got some feedback that some cyclists wanted a few more hills so new for 2017 we added the 30 km Tickle Loop to the 90 km Lost Shores Loop for a whopping 120 km of rolling hills.

Lost Shores Loop – 90 km

This is the loop that started it all, 90 km of low traffic oceanfront cycling. This ride follows the rolling oceanfront hills for a total 1000 m climb so you’ll get a full workout. As you leave Guysborough, you’ll soon come flying down a hill to Spanks Bridge over the Salmon River.

More Information


Queensport Light – 50 km

This is our favorite ride, 25 km each way out and back of rolling hills along the deep blue waters of Chedabucto Bay. Biggest hill is 225 feet with several really long coaster rides. Wheeee! Head to Queensport for a picture of Nova Scotia’s second most photographed lighthouse.

More Information


Interval Loop – 35km

This ride is all waterfront, no big hills. Follow Highway 16 along the shoreline for an easy ride along the water to beautiful Boylston.

More Information


Rail Trail Loop – 30km

The railway that never got built left a delightful rail trail along the banks of the Salmon River. Head out of town along Tompkinsville Road where blueberries and Christmas trees are everywhere.
