Steaming Nostril

April 08 2018
St. Jacobs, Ontario Canada

Join the hundreds of cyclists in the 5th annual Steaming Nostril cycling event.  From the seasoned racer to the first time rider, this is the ride for you!

From the seasoned racer to the first time rider, this is the spring season launch ride for you! Awards for the top overall male & female racers and medals to the top 3 in each age group. Chances are good that you’ll ride by Old Order Mennonites driving horse and buggies on their way to Sunday services. The clip-clop of hooves will briefly drown out the zing of bike chains connecting you to this unique region of Ontario. You’ll ride past historic buildings in the small, quaint towns of the region. New routes, new venue from the beautiful village of St. Jacobs. Tell your gravel grinder riding friends to come join you in this all Canadian Spring Classic. Delicious post ride soups/chile to be served alongside our craft brewery beer gardens. You’re known to be a tough, hardened rider and can reflect on the days ride with friends over a nice tasty craft beer.
