RHOMBUS rides!

April 10, 2011
Hey there!
If you’re getting this, hopefully you’re interested  in joining a group for LGBTQ* mountain biking in some trail rides this summer. Well, we’re proud to announce our plans for the summer.
  • Who? We had a planning meeting and decided on the name RHOMBUS, an acronym for Rainbow Halifax Off-road Mountain Bike Users Society.
  • What? A purely recreational off-road/trail biking club. Essentially, we’ll all meet, ride for a bit and then go for a coffee afterward.
  • When? We’re thinking two times a week; one Saturday morning ride and a weeknight (probably Tuesday).
  • Where? Saturday morning rides are going to be at Shubie Park in Dartmouth. Our weeknight ride will be at Point Pleasant Park.
  • Why? Fun!
  • How much? There aren’t many operating costs but we are encouraging all members donate $5. That money can be spent on special events (such as a season-ending party or, if we opt to, registration fees for the Pride parade).
Our first (introductory) ride is Saturday, April 16th at 9:30. This will be a light ride, starting at the Alderney Ferry Terminal and riding the Dartmouth Harbourwalk trail to the Woodside Ferry Terminal. Then, we turn around, head back and grab a bite to eat or coffee (maybe Two if by Sea?). We’re budgeting two hours for the entire event (including post-ride coffee).

So are you interested? If so, please send an e-mail to to join the mailing list. You can also check out our:
