Thanks to consulting with some of the most knowledgeable gravel riders in the region and after making sure the course was designed with rider safety in mind, We have developed a beautiful course that will in parts favour the power riders as they ride through open windy sections of wide gravel roads. On other parts of the course climbers will be able to create separation on some short punchy climbs. There are other sections where cars cannot pass where riders with advanced bike handling skills will be able to separate themselves from those without. The entire course provides magnificent scenery for all.
I am excited to bring the course to you all so that you will be able to ride it with right of way throughout the entire course. Having right of way is a fundamental component for the UCI Gravel series which makes this vent so focused on the rider experience. To make this possible we will work closely with the OPP in order to control traffic to make this possible and safe for the participants.
Here are some details about the long course:
Long Course: 122.6kms 1470m gain, GPS Link: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/41875230
