That will be quite an adventure. I hope someone with someone with better knowledge can help more.

You can go here and get some information. You can change the language to German at the top of the page: http://www.novascotia.com/

Check out this section on cycling: novascotia.com/see-do/…

The transcanada trail is incomplete, but you may wish to use some sections: http://tctrail.ca/explore-the-trail/

Here is the map showing the main highway from the airport in Halifax to North Sydney. http://goo.gl/maps/FGgDf There is a paved shoulder on much of this, but it is very busy with speeding traffic and I think you are right to avoid it if you can.

By clicking on the bicycle symbol this came up: http://goo.gl/maps/uXG9q

Much longer, but more scenic would be to follow the coast something like this: http://goo.gl/maps/7M5Ib

This latter route goes through some underpopulated areas, so when you come to a community with some shops, you should take advantage of it. There is next to nothing between Sherbrooke and Guysborough for example.

Here is some camping information:

Again I am not an expert, but I lived here some sixty years before even seeing a bear and that includes some wilderness camping. They have demolished bees and honey on our property but we did not see them. They are more of a nuisance than a danger. Here is some government information:
