For over a century the roads of northern Europe have been home to the toughest bicycle races in the world. The most famous of these, Paris to Roubaix, takes place each spring over brutal cobblestone roads that have been preserved in their historic condition for over 100 years. Inspired by this classic race, the Paris to Ancaster has taken place for the past twenty three years over the roughest farm lanes, trails and gravel roads we can find. Combined with unpredictable spring weather and the largest field of riders assembled in Canada, it has become a classic race experience for everyone from average riders to Canadian Olympians. Join us on April 30, 2017 to become part of the history of this unique race.

Registration for the P2A on Sunday April 30, 2017 is now officially open. Remember that both the P2A40 and P2A70 sold out for 2016. Get your registration in early. It helps us in our planning and it will even save you some $$$.

Every year we collect a bunch of leftover kit at the end of race day. We do our best to get them back to folks. Right now I've got an overload of stuff and we need the room in our garage. If not claimed in the near future I will either use them or donate to a worthy cyclist. Shoes, repair kit, heart monitor, glasses, gloves, vest, hat and shirt – they are available for return with a good and matching description of the item. Please email the description of your lost item to
