    Carlo here!

    I’m excited about returning to the Paris to Ancaster bike race. If you are nervous about the idea of a race don’t worry. It’s just a timed event. It is recommended that you pick your distance carefully. If you are an avid rider and have a mountain bike or cyclocross bike then the 70k is your challenge. For those of you who do not ride as much, then the 20k or 40 k is your ticket. The 40 k is still challenging, and you will most likely get muddy regardless of the race you choose. Visit the Paris to Ancaster website to register. There is additional information you should read to make your day run as smoothly as possible.
