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 four 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 29, 2018, our 25th annual event, to become part of the history of this unique race.

It is hard to believe that it has been 25 years since our first event. We've gotten longer and bigger and become a true classic anticipated by thousands of cyclists.

Last year was truly epic with wind and cold. 2018? Of course we have no idea as yet but as it is our 25th Annual race it is going to be epic even before it starts. We hope to see at the 25th Annual P2A!

We have put up a selection of photos from previous P2A's at the top of each page. If you have any photos from the 1990's editions of the P2A please let us know. We would love to share them with everyone.

There are 2 blogs that you should check out. First up is from Matt Surch, the 2017 3rd place finisher. If you thought it was an easy race for the pros then read what Matt had to say - CLICK.
