Sunday Gravel: P2A Prep

Sunday Gravel Ride | April 21 11:00AM


I know a lot of GCC members are signed up to participate at the annual Paris to Ancaster (P2A) race next weekend. I also know some have been training hard for months, and some have just recently topped up their tires. Either way, this week’s gravel session offers a taste of what you can expect from yourself at the big race. There is a 106km route for G1, a 73km route for G2 and G3, and a 45km route for G4. Prepare for a non-stop ride by bringing sufficient hydration and nutrition, and be sure to dress appropriately for the weather. I promise my future ride leads will have coffee and snack stops again 😉

Be sure to check back here before Sunday morning for any updates.

Load the route on your bike computer if you have one, here’s how.
