We are excited to finally be hosting our first group ride of 2019. We’ll warm up with a short 45 minute bike ride along the Chain of Lakes Trail in Halifax. 

3 tandem bikes parked

Please find details below and RSVP as soon as possible, as tandem bikes & volunteer pilots are reserved on a first come first serve basis. 

Sunday, July 14, 2019

9:30 a.m. to approx. 11 a.m.  

At 9:30 a.m., we’ll Meet on Barnstead Lane at Halifax Alta Gymnastics (off of Bayers Rd and bus accessible) and walk bikes a few blocks to the Chain of Lakes Trail Head. 

This is an easy-going and well-maintained trail. 

Please let us know if this meet up location is not accessible for you or if there are any additional questions or requests (someone can meet you at a nearby bus stop).

We have a fleet of tandem bikes available for this ride. We provide helmets.  

We can offer a trained volunteer pilot for this ride, just let us know if you’ll need one! Volunteer pilots are available for those brining their own tandem bike, too. 

If you would like a friend or family member, who is a confident cyclist, to pilot a Blind Sports NS tandem bike, please let us know to ensure they receive orientation prior to the ride. 

Friends & family with all types of bikes are welcome!! 

If you’ll be joining us on your own bike and would prefer, feel free to meet us at the Chain of Lakes Trail head, right in front of Shoppers Drug Mart at Joseph Howe Dr. and Bayers Rd around 9:45-9:50.

We look forward to hearing from you! Email: blindsportsns@gmail.com  Call or text: 902-449-0320  Connect on Facebook

Blind Ball Hockey Hits Halifax this summer

NS Blind Hockey & Blind Sports NS are excited to share a new summer program for blind and visually impaired kids, teens, and adults of all experience & skill levels.

Blind Ball Hockey is a fun way to get active while learning blind hockey skills in the floor hockey format. It’s also a great way for blind ice hockey athletes to maintain their skills over the summer months. 

The ball is adapted to be audible to players, sticks always stay below the waist, and nets are half as tall as conventional.
