NCCP Introduction to Competition Training to Race @ Milton Velodrome
Apr 28 – May 5 all-day

The course will take place on consecutive Saturdays; April 28 & May 5.

Instructor: Kelyn Akuna

Ready to Race! Introduction to Competition (R2R) is the context for coaches who will primarily work with new competitive cyclists at the community and club level. These athletes will likely be in the Learn to Train to Train to Train stages of LTAD, although the context could apply to any new racer of any age. These athletes have basic but developed cycling skills and the desire to begin competing within a structured training and competition program. They should have passed through an entry-level Community Initiation program (CCI) to help them develop the basic skills.

Training2Race is the a 2-day in-class workshop.  Participants should have completed the Introduction to Competition- Training Basics course prior to registering.  Please contact michael.suraci@ontariocycling.org if you have questions regarding this requirement.

Registration will close April 12, 2018

Almonte Paris-Roubaix
Apr 29 all-day

Like its inspiration, the 29th Ottawa Valley Paris-Roubaix Cyclosportif mixes well paved roads with abominations. The route includes mud, gravel, sand, rocks, unmaintained roads, woodlots and one switchback climb. The classic route is about 80 kilometres. A shorter 40 km is an option for riders and includes 3 woodlots. Note: U15 and U17 riders are eligible to ride only the 40 km route, and must have an adult riding with them.  U19 riders may choose either route, but if age 16 must have an adult riding with them.

This is a cyclosportif ride, not a race. The roads are open to other users. All traffic laws, including stopping at stop signs and staying to the right, apply to all riders at all times. Marshals may stop or delay riders for safety reasons. Any rider who disobeys their instructions will be immediately removed from the event.

There will be no motorized support, partly because some of the roads are not passable for motor vehicles. We strongly recommend that riders choose cycling equipment for its robustness, not its lightness. Any kind of bicycle may be used, although cyclocross bikes with large section road tires (at least 28 mm wide) are generally the best choice. Fixed gear bicycles must be equipped with at least a front working brake as is required under the Highway Traffic Act. Tribars are not allowed. It is each rider’s personal responsibility to ensure that their bicycle is legal and safe for road use in Ontario.

All riders must carry a working pump and at least two spare inner tubes. Tubular tire users should have at least two spare tires or one tire and an aerosol patching inflator. A cell phone is an excellent item to carry for calling for help if necessary.

Helmets are required at all times, including during warm-up.

For the safety of other riders and to avoid congestion, personal or team following vehicles are not permitted. Any riders or members of teams who violate this rule will be disqualified.

The only store along the route that will be open is at Clayton, but it is very close to the finish. Some riders will take nearly 4 hours to complete the ride, so riders must carry sufficient food and drink for their ride. Note: due to the rough route, be sure that your water bottles and pumps are well affixed to you and/or your bike.

REGISTRATION:

PLEASE READ THIS REGISTRATION INFORMATION CAREFULLY

Registration will be online only. There will be NO in-person registration session.

NO Late Registration:  There is NO late registration and NO day–of registration.

Entry Fee: $20 all categories, plus an online registration processing fee.

No single day permits are available for this ride. All entrants must hold either a valid 2018 UCI Racing License or a 2018 Ontario Cycling Association Citizen Permit. All riders must present proof of their UCI license or OCA Citizen Permit to the registrars at the in-person number pickup session at Euro-sports or on the morning of the ride to receive their numbers.

Those who are waiting to receive their UCI Racing License or Citizen Permit need to present a proof of purchase or an e-mail from their provincial association noting that they have permission to enter the event. This can be either a paper copy or the email on a smart phone. Citizen Permits, which are valid for the entire season, will only be available online through the OCA. There will be no Citizen Permits sold on site.

Paris to Ancaster
Apr 29 all-day Register Today

About

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 twenty four 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 29, 2018, our 25th annual event, to become part of the history of this unique race.

70K Race

The legendary race. For over 20 years competitors have fought each other, and sometimes the elements, over this course. It changes a bit from year to year but the essence of a tough ride remains. From full out on the rail bed beside the Grand River to the 90 degree turn up Sharp’s Lane, to Old Hwy. 24 and on to the McIntyre/Nixon Rail Line. The mud of Rose Farm and the forest of The Prengerlaan. More mud at Mineral Springs Road Mud Chute and then to the mud pit of all time – the Powerline Road Mudslide. Just when you think you’ve made it you’re hit with the equally legendary climb up Martin’s Road. You’re only 3km from the finish but it is steep, rutted, wet and you’re tired. If you can stay on your bike for the whole climb you’re good. Even overall winners have had to run up this climb in the past. Challenge yourself on this true event.

Be prepared! Event goes rain or shine! Bring a spare tube, pump, patch kit, rain jacket and gloves.
There has been snow and sleet on race day so be ready for anything. Helmets are mandatory.

40K Race

Starting in 2001 we have offered a shorter race. Many people have said “It’s only 40K”. Then they wonder why they are hitting the wall at the finish. At 40K long it is a very fast race. You also get a lot of the best, or the worst, of the 70K. There is the slow mud of Rose Farm and the beautiful forest of The Prengerlaan. There is the Mineral Springs Road Mud Chute and the infamous Powerline Road Mudslide that sucks off shoes and clogs bikes. You still experience the legendary climb up Martin’s Road with its steep, rutted, and wet track. If you can stay on your bike for the whole climb you’re good. It is a good challenge for many racers and it sees more participants every year.

Be prepared! Event goes rain or shine! Bring a spare tube, pump, patch kit, rain jacket and gloves.
