Whether you’re in it for a fun family ride or challenging coastal trek the Ride for Heart NL promises an unforgettable experience for all. Every rider will get the pleasure of starting out in beautiful Bowring Park, riding under the canopy of massive maple trees alongside St. John’s beautiful Waterford River, peddling past the bustling dock of the St. John’s Harbour, spinning through the narrow streets of quirky Quidi Vidi Village, and cruising past century’s old buildings, pubs and shops on historic Water Street. Those up for the challenging 60km ride will also get the thrill of tackling the hills of Shea Heights to gain access to the potential spectacle of icebergs and whales off Cape Spear (the most easterly point in North America), onwards to the stunning fishing village of Petty Harbour (home of Great Big Sea’s Alan Doyle), through the quaint farmland of the Goulds and back to celebrate at Bowring Park.
