Coastal Cruising with Coastal Gypsies Featured

Cruising Coastal Gypsies winter With snow flying faster than DC on his Harley Sportster, I, Rexy, sit here to plan our 2020 Rides.
It looks like the true Canadian North out there but with faith, spring will be here soon. Nova Scotia may be small in size but we are big in adventure. 
Not all the adventure is just for the highways, on February 22, join Little Lady and I as we tour the East Coast Women’s Show! Held at Halifax Exhibition Centre, there will be many vendors, music, prizes and more! I know Privateers-Harley Davidson shop will be there and I am sure they will be bringing some bling! 

 

Keep watching the CMTA pages and our group for some exciting news regarding the Halifax International Tattoo! I am not saying anything for sure but I just maybe looking for a date to take to the show *wink*!

Now.. Onto the rides, there are many rides and Ride nights to keep you rolling every night of the week throughout Nova Scotia in the peak riding season. Regular Ride nights of the past are sure to continue in 2020 and we plan to check them all out. Stay tuned for a list of Community Ride nights as they develop! 

 

 Coastal Gypsies 2020 Season, officially kicks off on May 2 this year with the Truro’s Blessings of the Bikes! Held in Victoria Park and attended by hundreds of bikers from all over the Maritimes. With awards for largest group and furthest ride. There are vendors, music, food and of course the Blessing. Riders come out for this one regardless of the weather and you can feel the excitement for the season to come! 

 

 Our regular bike night is Tuesday Night Bike Night in Masstown, NS. Held about 15 minutes outside Truro, you can go the express way there along Highway 104, or take your time and tour along the wonderful Bay of Fundy.  For us, the old highway promises a scenic ride with the Bay at your side. Touring through old farming country on Highway 4, taking every freshly paved turn with just a little twist in the wrist. The meeting spot is held at Masstown Market, where there is always a warm welcome, a designated area for us all to gather and shine, lots of coffee and goodies on hand! Sharon always runs a 50/50 in support of a year end Biker’s Picnic so if you stop in be sure to say “Hi, Great job!” to her as she hustles around! 

 

Bike nights in Masstown usually start mid to end of May and are on just in time to warm the tires for the Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A) 100 mile ride. For those of you following along on our Coastal Gypsies Blog you know just how challenging (but super FUN) this ride can be!  With a different route each year, they always make sure to scout it out and ensure it suits riders of all levels. They are great making sure all riders know the route and rules before we head out and ensure everyone has a great time. They are prepared for hiccups that may arise and even give out prizes along the way! The ride is followed with an amazing fundraiser dinner and auction raising money for a great cause, supporting and empowering abused children!

Some other rides we plan to check out this year, include but are not limited to; 
the Annual Memorial Bikers Run on May 24, hosted by Maritime Motorcycle Touring Association. The MMTA  are a group of amazing riders in yellow out to support the events of other organizations. Anyone who loves to ride is welcome. 
 The Biker’s Down Angel Run on June 20, the annual memorial Angel ride is to remember all of our brothers and sisters who have passed on in the riding community and the proceeds are set aside for condolence donations to the families of fallen riders. Biker’s Down is a not for profit organization established by Nova Scotia Bikers to provide assistance to our Nova Scotian motorcycle enthusiasts of all ages, all makes and all clubs. 
The Annual Highway of Heroes Run on August 22, raising awareness about critical incident stress among military members and first responders, organizers hope the event inspires people to be mindful year-round.

 

 With the 2020 rides and rallies events just hitting the airwaves, along with other special events we have planned, we are sure to have a memory packed season. Join us and CMTA as we bring you all the action from the East Coast - Canada’s Ocean Playground!
