Bike ‘n Brew: Sunday, October 15th

BUY TICKETS BY CLICKING HERE

The inaugural year, this event combines the best of both worlds: mountain biking and beer.

We start off the day with a family-friendly scavenger hunt on two-wheels as we whip through the locally-built trails of Massey Drive and Corner Brook. Take on the challenge on your own, as a team, or as a family and try to find the hidden spots over 20kms. The person with the most spots found is the winner, with additional prizes for the first person/group at some locations.

Then, at 5:00pm, the 19+ riders and general public will join us at the Town Hall in Massey Drive for a Beer Tasting with Port Rexton Brewing. Have a few pints of their acclaimed brew as the creators explain the art behind each beer and the taste palate. We’ll also serve a supper provided by Brewed Awakening of chili, cornbread, and dessert. Sign-up to our shuttle service and have you + your bike driven home at the end of a rewarding day of Biking ‘n Brew!

Tickets must be purchased online. Limited number accepted to the beer tasting. Save $5 on the Brew Portion of the event, if you register before 9pm on September 30th.

  • scavenger hunt through 20km of trails

Now that the days are getting shorter (and the nights a bit cooler), it doesn’t mean that you have to cut short your after-work riding.

All you have to do is make sure you’re prepared once you hit the trail or road.
