COME RIDE WITH US

This is a one day road cycling adventure on an open course for people who are passionate about their active lifestyles.

Choose from a beautiful 60, 100K, 160K route that takes you along the quiet rural roads surrounding London Ontario. There will be marshals and directional signs along the course, as well as 3 rest stops along the way complete with replenishments, washrooms, and a bike mechanic for minor repairs.   Everyone will get the chance to do a LAP of DELAWARE SPEEDWAY at check point one and carry on from there. Upon finishing, celebrate your accomplishment with food, drink and the camaraderie of other riders at the brewery.

The route will be open to other users, so we advise caution while out on the road.  While there is support, riders will 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.
