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 $40 you can choose between a 50km or 100km ride that will take you throughout our 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, RAIN OR SHINE.  Upon finishing, celebrate your accomplishment at Cascata Bistro, on their beautiful chilled out patio or in the restaurant for a craft burger and beer (not included in reg price). Relax and bask in the glory of a ride well done with the camaraderie of other riders at the Après Ride.

Regular Price: $40

Day of Registration: $50 (Exact Cash Only)

  Well marked, smooth roads for a safe, enjoyable ride.

  • Finish area Après Ride
  • Rest stations – water, nourishment & restrooms.
