The Heartland Tour, organized by the Cardiac Cycling Society of Nova Scotia, is a bike ride through communities in the province in promotion of having a physically active lifestyle.

Participants had the choice of an 80-km road ride departing from Shipyards Landing in Bridgewater or a 30-km trail trek starting in Mahone Bay. There was also a three kilometre walk taking place that also saw the Main Street of the South Shore as a starting point.
