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 since 1994 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, 2022 to become part of the history of this unique race.

Paris to Ancaster is in the DNA of Ontario cycling events. We're one of the longest-standing races in Canada and a pioneer of the gravel movement. We like to think we were gravel before gravel was cool. Our race's growth and success is because of every rider who has challenged the courses since 1994. Thank you for supporting us.

Covid-19 has impacted sporting events around the globe and we know that everyone is missing participating. After having to cancel and modify the past 2 events, we look forward to returning in 2022. We are planning some new additions to the event that will make it bigger & better than ever.

ONE HUGE CHANGE FOR 2022 - The P2A100. Yep, longer and tougher. And a new start for it too, this time at the Paris Fairgrounds.

The P2A70 has a new start as well, this time in Cambridge. The P2A45 will once again start in St. George. We welcome the return of the P2A20 Family Ride.

GENERAL REGISTRATON IS OPEN! P2A70 Wave 2 is already filled!

We are looking forward to seeing our rider community out on the gravel this year! Stay tuned as final decisions are made...and keep training!
