After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s no wonder most of us begin the New Year looking for ways to slow down and relax.
After last year’s Steaming Nostril during which participants faced ice, snow and mud, riders were probably hoping for a fairer weathered edition of the spring race this year. Unfortunately for the participants of the 65 km Steaming Nostril and 40 km Runny Nose in Waterloo Region, conditions didn’t improve much for 2019. On a cold and wet day, nearly 300 riders still signed-up for a treacherous and cold day of riding. Only about 150 riders showed up and finished because of how tough the riding was on Sunday.
