|Information||The Apple Valley Riders Club was incorporated in 1979 and over the past 40 years has attracted members from throughout Nova Scotia although the core membership continues to be in the Wolfville area. We also have members residing in the USA as well.
The major activity of the Apple Valley Riders is operating the Bluenose Rally. 2015 was the 45th year for this event and it is the oldest motorcycle rally in the Maritimes (possibly the nation).
The club also has road rides and other social events.
The Apple Valley Riders endorse safe motorcycle touring; several members are, or have been, instructors of the Canada Safety Council Motorcycle Training Program, Gearing Up.
This is a family-oriented club.
The AVR is an affiliated club of the Canadian Motorcycle Association.
This group has experienced a piece of history in the growth of motorcycling in our part of the world. We have seen the evolution in the machines and lived the excitement of the sport through our participation in the motorcycle club fraternity.
