Paris to Ancaster
April 14, 2013
For over a century the roads of northern Europe have been home to the toughest bicycle races in the world. The most famous of these, Paris to Roubaix, takes place each spring over brutal cobblestone roads that have been preserved in their historic condition for over 100 years.
Inspired by this classic race, the Paris to Ancaster has taken place for the past nineteen years over the roughest farm lanes, trails and gravel roads we can find. Combined with unpredictable spring weather and the largest field of riders assembled in Canada, it has become a classic race experience for everyone from average riders to Canadian Olympians. Join us on April 14, 2013 to become part of the history of this unique race.
Mountain bikes, hybrids and cyclocross bikes are recommended. The course consists of 24km of gravel and dirt roads, 5km of farm lanes, 19km of rail trail, 14km of singletrack (1-3km sections) and 8km of paved road.
