Whistler Gran Fondo
Vancouver, B.C. Canada
Sept 10 2016
It’s not a race, so there’s no pressure. You can ride whatever pace you want. You can even stop for a sandwich along the way – they’re provided. And no matter what pace you choose, you’re not likely going to be riding alone. There will be a fast bunch at the front if you want to keep up with them and you can count on local spectators cheering along the way. The scenery is better than you would see in a magazine. The ride ends with a massage and a party, and everyone’s invited.

late summer gravel race will be a perfect test for fitness and skill at the end of the season as you get ready for cross. Choose between 100 mile, 100k and 50k options. Lots of climbing and less than 1k of pavement.

September has a huge need for an epic event, and Superfly Racing in conjunction with the boys at CHRONOS/GIRO are working together to keep the EPIC in September!
With a shorter, Albion-only course of 25km, AND a 40km loop including Palgrave, there is something for everyone! Add a 2-lap, 80+ km race, and you have a truly epic, 3.5 – 7 hour romp through some of the funnest – yes, funnest, trails in the GTA!
Ossignton, Toronto, Ontario
Downtown Toronto racing returns! The fine folks at the newly formed Ossington BIA have decided that their first annual street fair, OssFest, needed a bike race, so the Ossington Crit was born. There are four races throughout the day to assault your senses. Starting with two events where local racers will be competing for local glory, they’ll be followed by Elite/ProAm Women’s and Men’s race. Got any young future racers scooting around your house? Bring them by for the kids’ rally that will be held in between some of the races. The day will be full of thrills and excitement for everyone.
