NEW THIS YEAR!

 

Our timed 75km riders will have exclusive access from 6:00 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. to get onto the roadway. To ensure the safety of all participants, the chute will close promptly at 6:30 a.m. and will reopen at 8:00 a.m. for all participants.

Riders participating in the 75km timed route must maintain an average speed of 25/km per hour on average. A follow car will be on the route to ensure the speed is being adhered to.   If any participant falls below this threshold, they may be removed from the timed portion of the event.  This is to ensure the timing and flow of the event are accessible to all participants.

One you have completed the ride, look for our signage that will be placed around the venue with a QR code to check your results.

The chute will reopen for non-timed riders from 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.   75km riders must be North of Bayview by 12 p.m. in order to complete the full route.

Helmets are mandatory for all riders!
