Hi Folks,

Turas Mór is back. We are eager to host our annual bike ride that celebrates the beautiful things that come when we journey together.

On May 13th, 2023, we are once again calling on quirky, curious, adventurous, and eccentric riders to join in Creemore for a rain or shine ride celebrating our community and of course……Great fresh beer.

Our registration site is now open.

20km - Start Time: 11:30AM

Inspired by our Helles Light Lager, this route will leave you fulfilled and refreshed. With a few small hills on paved roads this ride is perfect for beginners & intermediate riders. It takes you out and back to the beautiful hamlet of Glen Huron.

40km - Start Time: 10:30AM

Seeking a flavourful and crisp ride? This route is inspired by our Crisp Pilsner. The climb out of Creemore on the way to Terra Nova is long and hard but worth it! Just like our brewing process. After the almost 15km uphill folks can stop and refresh at the Terra Nova Public house before enduring another climb. Making their way back and down Lavender Hill. The roads are a mix of paved and gravel. Another rest stop will be offered in Dunedin before finishing down county road 9 towards the brewery. In summary a sweet, rich start with a balanced finish……just like a familiar brew of ours. 😉

60km - Start Time: 10:00AM

This route hasn’t changed much since our events inception in 2016. Hence why this route is inspired by our Premium Lager which hasn’t changed at all since our birthday 35 years ago. There are 4 tough steep climbs: as the rider makes their way from Creemore to Terra Nova: just outside Terra Nova to lavender Hill; up Sideroad 6/7 to the second rest stop (The New Farm): and just when you think you’ve made it, a beautiful lingering finish brings you up 15/16 Sideroad to Fairgrounds before descending into Creemore. This route is predominantly gravel terrain – with lots of mud, ruts and sometimes sand. We encourage accomplished intermediate and advanced cyclists to register for this ride. 

Start times subject to change.  Cyclists will be notified as event day approaches.
