About BonRexton

The BonRexton Granfondo is a celebration of Newfoundland and Labrador's unique culture, cuisine and topography. 
 

Conceived in 2018 over a pint in St. John's, the goal was to create an adventure for road cyclists in one of the province's most vibrant, yet rural, regions. Collaborating with local businesses like Port Rexton Brewery, Two Whales Coffee Shop, Fisher's Loft, Oh My Cheeses, Bonavista Bicycle Picnics and Round Da Bay In, organizers aimed to create an event which would be more than just a big bike ride. 
 

With roads hugging rugged coastlines throughout one hundred and thirty beautiful kilometres, BonRexton Granfondo riders will roll through small communities which boast hundreds of years steeped in seafaring history as well as modern cultural innovations. Riders pass towns revitalized by breweries, coffee shops, artist studios and world-class tourism amenities.
 

This ride is fully supported, with a roveing mechanic and multiple first aid patrolling the course throughout the day. Riders will finish off at the school for a reception, followed later on by drinks at the Brewery.
