It works closely with the cycling clubs and tries to provide an up to date database of the club/shops in the province. It is working to improve all areas of the sport including educating as many Nova Scotians as possible in safe cycling. BNS' Education and Advocacy VP works closely with a number of local volunteer and government groups to promote recreational and utilitarian cycling. Bicycle Nova Scotia works closely with its sanctioning body, the Canadian Cycling Association (CCA). They are also part of a larger organization, the UCI, which governs all of cycling in the world.
Cogeyed evolved from East Coast Mountain Biking, an online magazine based out of Eastern Canada. East Coast Mountain Biking, or ECMTB, was a hidden gem on the internet that during its peak earned over 16 million hits a month! Though even then, its potential was always limited by the 'East Coast' and 'Mountain Biking' namesake. Although ECMTB never discriminated, westerners and cyclists who weren't on the rocks and roots just didn't feel as 'at home' as the true ECMTBers. Cogeyed is picking up where ECMTB left off!
