Welcome to the MEC Burlington Century Ride.  This is a one day road cycling adventure on an open course for people who are passionate about their active lifestyles.  For only $35 you can choose between a 50km or 100km ride that will take you through the beautiful Escarpment. There will be marshals and directional signs along the course, rest stops complete with replenishments, electrolytes, and a bike mechanic for minor repairs.  The ride will start at 9:00AM.  Upon finishing, celebrate your accomplishment with a BBQ from Burlington Rotary Club, beer supplied by Nicklebrook Brewery & served by Bike For Mike. Relax and bask in the glory of a ride well done with the camaraderie of other riders at the Après Ride.

  • Well marked, smooth roads for a safe, enjoyable ride.
  • Finish area Après Ride
  • Rest stations – water, nourishment.
  • Mechanical and Medical support at rest stations. 
  • MEC mechanics will be available for any last minute pre ride adjustments.

 

The route will be open to other users, so we advise caution while out on the road.  RULES OF THE ROAD MUST BE OBEYED.  All road signs and intersetion markings or signals must be adhered to without exception.  Riders need to be self-sufficient along the ride – pack appropriate clothing, spare tube, pump and patch kit, food and water if you feel you’ll need extra nourishment between aid stations.
