12th Annual Kawartha Lakes Classic Cycle Tour

The 12th Annual Kawartha Lakes Classic is a charity cycling tour that will be held on Saturday, August 29, 2015 and hosted by the Kawartha Cycling Club with Title Sponsors Boston Pizza and Canadian Tire.

All proceeds from the Classic will benefit A Place Called Home (APCH) a charitable, non-profit organization that has been providing 24/7 support services to the homeless, and those at risk of becoming homeless, for over 20 years in the City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County. APCH operates a 19-bed emergency shelter for youths, adults, couples and families providing shelter along with meals, laundry facilities and the counselling needed to find permanent housing and supports to help break the cycle of homelessness.

As in previous years, four road distances are offered – 13 km, 25 km, 50km, 100 km, and 160 km. Starting and finishing at Boston Pizza in Lindsay Ontario, the scenic routes have been chosen keeping riders’ different capabilities in mind, but always with an emphasis on fun. The 13km and 25 km routes are ideal for families and include an out and back ride on quiet streets and the Trans Canada Trail (suitable for all bikes). The 50/100/160km rides all have their own full route on quiet paved roads with no repeating loops.

Riders aged 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

All routes are well marked with rest stops providing refreshments and roving support vehicles for first-aid and mechanical assistance. Entrants will celebrate the finish with a well-deserved post-ride lunch and prizes. Chair massages will be available following your ride for $10/10 minutes with 50% of proceeds donated to A PLACE CALLED HOME.

Start time for the 100/160 km. routes is 8:00 a.m. The 50 km starts at 9:30 and the 13/25 km. routes start at 10:30 a.m.

Online registration is $50 for adults and $20 for youths 16 and under until August 24th at midnight. On-site registration the day of the event will also be available for an additional $10 for adults and $5 for youths 16 and under (cash or cheque only please) beginning at 7:00 a.m.
