2017 P2A 20K Family Ride
The newest version of Canada’s Spring Classic returns for its second edition with a few changes. Like its two older siblings, the P2A70 and P2A40, the P2A20 becomes a true “point to point” adventure with a new start location at Bishop Tonnos High School. P2A20 is designed for families, beginners and anyone looking for a shorter, less grueling version of P2A. You get all the fun of the original route with a variety of paved and unpaved roads, trails, bike paths ,rail trails and closed road allowances. It will bypass the infamous mud chutes of the P2A40 and P2A70, but share the same final challenging climb of Martins Rd to the finish line at the Ancaster Community Centre. The course breakdown for the 20 km is approximately 7km gravel road, 5km of paved road, 5 km of smooth gravel rail trail and 3km of single track. This ride is most suited to mountain and hybrid bikes. This ride is suitable for riders of all ages and abilities. The mass start ride will be self timed with finisher's awards, draw prizes, a post race meal and entertainment for everyone.
START TIME - 9:30am Start is at Bishop Tonnos High School in Ancaster. The finish is at the Ancaster Community Centre.
In the interest of safety for all P2A participants, the 20K course may be shortened at strategic points for riders who are unable, due to mechanical problems or physical ability, to maintain an average speed of 10km/hour or if there is an estimated finish time (over 2 hours) that would result in a conflict with the finish of the 70km race.
