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 24, 2016 to become part of the history of this unique race.

Ride for Research
Beginning in 2016, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation is proud to be the new official charity partner of the Paris to Ancaster Bike Race. Now novice and expert cyclists alike can ride to support research at St. Joe’s. Whether you choose to fundraise on your own, or as part of a corporate or friends and family team, every dollar you raise will be supporting vital healthcare research. St. Joe’s is a research powerhouse in areas like mental health & addictions, kidney & urinary care, lung diseases, critical care and much more. The funds you raise through this Ride for Research will help to create a healthier future for all of us. CLICK HERE for more information on how to register and raise funds in the 2016 Paris to Ancaster Bike Race.

Registration Update - Still Going Strong
We are pleased to report that registration for the 2016 P2A continues well ahead of last year's pace and shows no signs of letting up. It looks like some of the waves in the P2A70 are sold out - don't despair because there is still lots of room. The incredible P2AVIP The Pro Experience still has lots of space. The full 70K too much? Why not ride the best of the P2A route in the P2A40?

Welcome to NCCH
New for 2016, the National Cycling Centre Hamilton is offering a Mountain Bike Program to help you train, race and excel at events and especially the Paris To Ancaster. More info on our Prepare/Training page.
