Sounds like you guys want to spend time on the Nova Scotia trails - old railroad tracks converted to trails.
This will provide you with all the cycling trails in NS. Be aware that some are not for cycling but for hiking only (too rugged for cycling).
In my area (Halifax county) I suggest:
Atlantic View Trail
Musquodoboit Trail (also alot of rugged backcountry trails here for hiking)
I also suggest that you team up with Nova Scotia Ramblers. The founder of this club, Bob White, is a great guy and a good friend of mine and would love to have you along for one of their rides. They spend their time on these types of trails and quiet back roads.
If you do the Atlantic View or Musquodoboit trail stop in here
and say hello. Number 19 Maryetta, last house on the right.
Hope that helps.

It would be much appreciated.
