The Tour de Port au Port is an annual 97km road cycling race around the French, Port au Port Peninsula on the island's West Coast. This Tour attracts many competitive racers as well as more recreational riders of all abilities.
This year's Tour de Port au Port will be Newfoundland and Labrador's Provincial Championships, and will include the awarding of Canadian National Ranking points.
