Wild Rock, in partnership with 100 Acre Brewing Co. and La Mesita Restaurante, are bringing three of life's greatest joys together - Bikes, Beer, and Tacos!!

Inspired by the spirit of exploration and fuelled by our passion for cycling, we've curated a series of picturesque (and at times exciting) rides for cyclists of all levels. Join us as we embark on gravel adventures, scenic road rides, and leisurely jaunts to some of our favourite mid-ride stops.

Whether you're new to riding or seasoned & experienced, Scott has created a ride to suit you. Choose from the 40km, 60km, or 120km rides, which will include some of our favourite local paved and gravel roads. 

This is a self-supported GPS ride!  Please download routes in advance if you have a GPS computer. There are no signs.

We will have riders out to sweep the routes so no one is left out alone, as well as an info-sheet at registration including phone numbers for on-route pickups, mechanical assistance, and non-emergency medical help.
