Here comes the OTHER tour!

The Tour du Port Au Port is Newfoundland’s penultimate Cycling race, kicking off with a beautiful Bay St George Time Trial, and followed up with an epic roundabout adventure on the Port Au Port peninsula! This race is as gorgeous as it is challenging, with 115k along rolling coastal hills and an expansive seaside vista. Your legs will hurt, but there’s so much scenery to look at you won’t even notice.

This two-stage race has attracted folks from all over the province and the country for years now, and we’d love to see you out as well!
