LOGISTICS - TRANSPORTATION & REGISTRATION


KIT PICKUP - SATURDAY APRIL 27, 2024
RACE - SUNDAY APRIL 28, 2024

7 TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS

There are 3 distances for the P2A. They are all point-to-point which means they start at 3 different locations. All 3 finish at the Ancaster Community Center/Robert E. Wade Community Park, in Ancaster Ontario. That means that getting around and registration has some particular challenges for both us and you the participant.

1) Get Someone to Drive You
Use a driver and have them drop you at the start and pick you up near the finish. NOTE:- THERE IS NO PARKING AT THE FINISH ON RACE DAY. THE PARKING LOTS ARE RESERVED FOR RACE OPERATIONS AND FOR VIPS. Parking is available not far away. Full details TBA.

2) Carpooling
Drive to Ancaster and park near the finish early in the morning on Race Day and then have someone pick you up and get you to the start. This sort of carpooling is really helpful. NOTE:- THERE IS NO PARKING AT THE FINISH ON RACE DAY. THE PARKING LOTS ARE RESERVED FOR RACE OPERATIONS AND FOR VIPS. Parking is available not far away. Full details TBA.

Free Start line Gear Truck
At the start line there will be a gear truck to bring any post race clothing, extra warm up clothing etc directly to the finish line. This is a free service to all riders. (Organizers are not responsible for lost items)

Free Post race shuttle bus
After the race there is a free secure bike corral at the finish line. A free shuttle bus will be available approximately every 20 minutes to get you back to your vehicle in Paris, Cambridge or St George. Secure corral closes at 6pm.

3) Combining the Gear Truck and Shuttle Bus - Free Transport - If you drive to the start we can assist you. It doesn't cost anything other than your time and fuel for your vehicle. Get your Race Kit on Saturday. On Race Day drive to the start with your bike and race kit. Leave a post-race gear bag in the gear truck. Race back to Ancaster. Leave your bike in a secure corral at the finish (Ancaster). Collect your gear bag. Take a free shuttle bus back to your start to collect your vehicle. Drive back to Ancaster to get your bike. Secure corral closes at 6pm.

Paid Transportation Options
4) Pre race bus and truck
We offer a $25 pre race bus and truck service for P2A racers. Meet at a reserved parking area near the finish line (Location TBD) where buses (for people) and trucks (for bikes) will be in place to move you/bike from the finish line to the start. Reservation only. Your bus/truck ticket is in your Race Kit that you pick up on Saturday. Space is limited.

RACE KIT/PLATE PICKUP & REGISTRATION

WITH SEVERAL THOUSAND RACERS IN ATTENDANCE, COMBINED WITH AN EARLY START ON RACE DAY, IT ISN'T FEASIBLE TO HAVE RACE DAY KIT PICKUP. THE MAJORITY OF PARTICIPANTS NEED TO COLLECT THEIR KITS ON SATURDAY APRIL 27TH.
This aspect has been in place for many years now. We have kit pickup run for 7 hours on Saturday and it is a hectic scene. We can't and don't bring any race kits to the starts. Thank you for understanding.

PLEASE CONSIDER FUNDRAISING FOR OUR CHARITY PARTNER
ST. JOSEPH'S HEALTHCARE FOUNDATION

ST JOES

For the past nine years, Paris to Ancaster has partnered with St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation and The Research Institute of St. Joe’s Hamilton, inviting race participants to ride and raise funds to support groundbreaking health research at St. Joe’s.
Groundbreaking research sounds great, but what does it really mean?

Research at St. Joe’s changes lives. Please consider asking your friends and family to support you on your ride, or simply choose to make a gift at the time of registration. Either way, you’ll be helping to ensure that St. Joe’s researchers have the resources they need to create a healthier future – right here in our community and around the globe. We hope you will join us on this Ride for Research.
