Hell of the North @ Ballantrae, ON
Apr 21 all-day

HELL OF THE NORTH

Our 11th annual ‘Hell of the North’ will be held early Sunday April 21st 2019! Starting and ending at the Ballantrae Community Center. The epic spring classic with 90 kilometers of the most amazing dirt and off road sections to make this truly one of the hardest events of the year! It promises to test your early season fitness. As always the Hell of the North route will include rail trails, dirt roads and some of the area’s nicest climbs. Cyclocross and mountain bikes for this wave. There are sections you will have to dismount. Road bikes are not recommended, MTB shoes and pedals are!

HECK OF THE NORTH

Returning for it’s 7th year, we have an incredible, alternative route called the HECK. This is for anyone who wishes to be tested but doesn’t want to dismount or ride through a farmers field. The HECK of the North is a 70 kilometer route that will still include many of the amazing roads used in the HOTN but there are no off-road sections, farmers fields, or the nasty trench. This means you can ride a regular road bike on this beauty (leave the $10,000 bike at home though!). Both routes are sure to test you and both promise to be an amazing day out on the bike!

Paris to Ancaster @ Ancaster, ON
Apr 28 all-day

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 five 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 28, 2019, our 26th annual event, to become part of the history of this unique race.
