P2A Race Sponsors and Partners

Our Charity Partners

St. Joe's
St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation is proud to be the 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.
Cycling Canada
Paris to Ancaster is proud to announce a new partnership with the Canadian National Cyclo-Cross team for the next five years, in an effort to better promote and support Cyclo-Cross in Canada.

This five-year financial commitment from P2A will directly help the National Team program by offsetting the costs associated with providing mechanical and coaching support to national team athletes while at international competitions. P2A Race Director Tim Farrar says, “In a sense, P2A is simply doubling down on a year’s long commitment to provide what support we can. The National Cyclocross team athletes and staff can count on us for the next 5 seasons…at least”.
Badge of Life Canada is a peer-led, national charitable volunteer organization committed to supporting police and corrections personnel who are dealing with psychological injuries diagnosed from service.

Since 2010, Badge of Life Canada has been associated with numerous incentives for strategic public safety wellness research and analysis. Badge of Life Canada is committed to sustaining and creating long-term, committed partnerships with various key stakeholders. Our organization is composed of lived experience professionals, clinical psychologists, chaplains, academics and researchers who are focused on changing the relationship surrounding mental wellness for members who face traumatic events on a daily basis across the country.

Ancaster Cycle
Ancaster Cycle came on board in 1994 when P2A was nothing more than an idea. As an original sponsor of the race, Trevor Graham and his team have been helping riders before, during and after the race with knowledge gained from over two decades of P2A experience. Located in downtown Ancaster, not far from the finish of P2A, Ancaster Cycle is a one stop cycling shop for all ages and abilities, stocking some of the best brands in the world.
The Bicycle Shop
The Bicycle Shop in Brantford got the call when CBC tv star Rick Mercer wanted to ride a steeply banked velodrome and needed some advice and equipment. You can get the same star treatment from this family run business at 228 Clarence Street. Established in 1969, Terry Dethridge is at the helm of the business he began while in high school. Since that that time the Bicycle shop has been a source of expert advice, quality products and unending support for thousands of riders. http://www.cbc.ca/player/Shows/Shows/The+Rick+Mercer+Report/Season+5/ID/1237360234/
Pieriks Cycle
Pieriks Cycle in Hamilton's Westdale neighborhood is one of Ontario's premier bicycle shops. Since 1967, Pieriks has been providing the Hamilton area with quality service and products. This wealth of experience means that you can always rely on their friendly, professional staff to answer any questions you might have about P2A or cycling in general. Drop by the store located at 840 King St W.
ZM Cycles

ZM Cycles is owned by one of the Toronto areas most dedicated supporters of the sport, Ziggy Martuzalski. Ziggy is not only a sponsor of P2A, but has firsthand experience at the front end of the race. His best finish, 8th overall, also put this former Polish national team member onto the top step of the podium for his age group.
