An enormous Thank You to all those business owners and individuals who donated to make this years Blind Sports NS Charity Auction our most successful yet!
We raised $5,600. Every dollar will support blind and visually impaired athletes, of all ages & skill levels. We are so grateful and excited to continue growing competitive & recreational sports for all in our communities.
Please bring a bicycle helmet, if you have one, and let us know if you need detailed directions, bus information, or assistance getting from a bus stop to the event location. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions!
How it Works
Tandem biking (on a bicycle for 2), with a pilot, makes getting active in the great outdoors with friends, family, and peers more accessible for individuals with vision loss.
A pilot rides in front, steering, shifting gears, and communicating effectively with the stoker (person riding on the back seat).
Ways to Ride with Us
Loan a Bike – We have 3 tandem bikes available for short & long-term loans to individuals with vision loss. We provide riding and safety instruction and a roster of trained volunteer pilots, or ride with a sighted friend or family member. Please contact us with a minimum of 72 hours notice.
Group Rides – We host group rides and attend community events, too. It’s a fun way to get outdoors and get active and everyone’s welcome!

On behalf of the Blind Sports NS Board, recreational and competitive athletes, parents, and countless lives you’ve touched, THANK YOU is not enough.
“Seeing these adults and youths enjoying activities that other people take for granted is very rewarding. Both my boys have helped with blind sports since they were very young. They have no doubts about the abilities of people with a visual impairment. It would be great if the rest of the world realized it.”
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who took part in the GoodLife Kids Foundation Spin4Kids event this past Saturday in Halifax!
Your efforts help fund inclusive programs, like Junior Goalball in Nova Scotia, where kids with vision loss can get active with their peers.
