7 Things You Need To Know About The Paris To Ancaster Bike Race

This race is no joke. It has been around for
more than twenty years.  One thing that
you should be prepared for is the mud which proves to be tough for most riders.

I have prepared a few points on the things a
rider should expect when participating in the Paris to Ancaster race.


Be Prepared
For Any Weather

Like some people say at times the weather can
be quite unpredictable. The Paris to Ancaster race has faced snow, wind, and
sun. The riders should always be ready to encounter any weather. The
unpredictable weather makes the race very interesting for both the riders and
the fans.

 As a
rider, you should be equipped with gear that can handle any weather. You can be
in a gear that is for the windy weather and to your surprise you get to
encounter snow. Always be on the lookout.


Be Self-Sufficient

The Paris to Ancaster race takes place in rural
areas which are remote. Even though there are aid stations I would recommend
that you carry your supply of personal things so as to avoid any inconvenience.

Your bike might break down in a remote zone
which might be kilometers away to the next aid station that means you will have
to walk the distance (or I would suggest to chooser your bike carefully, these
guides and recommendation by Chooserly,
and BodyandGear
might be helpful).

The spare things that you should not miss are
water, food and two or more spare tubes. The personal stuff will come in handy
during the race since it is not a guaranteed smooth race.


Run What
You Came With

are no restrictions as to which type of bike riders should ride. You are free
to ride on any bike as long as it can handle the terrain. If the race is that
important to you, then you will consider using the cyclocross bike for the

cyclocross bike is the recommended bike because it can handle the challenges
and it is fast enough. I like the freedom that riders have been given.

You can decide to ride an old bike, and I can
assure you that it will get you through the tough climb Martin's road just
before the finish.


The Mud

The Paris to Ancaster race is famous for the
large quantity of mud that is located at the various stages of the race. Riders
should be prepared for this.  Riding in
the mud is a little bit of fun, and it also tastes your endurance.

The notorious mud section in the race is the
power line road mudslide. The organizers of the race went ahead to set up a
place at the end of the race where riders can get a power wash in exchange for
a few dollars which help in funding the local youth development team. This is
such a noble course which ought to be emulated in other races.


Get To
Race With Pros

 Different people have different reasons as to
why they participate in the Paris to Ancaster race. Some are in it just for the
fun while others who can be categorized as professionals are in it to win and
nothing less.

 Some of
the professionals that have taken part in this race are former American
cyclocross champion Jeremy Powers, multiple mountain bike world champion and
Olympic medallist Alison Sydor. Come and enjoy a ride with the world's greatest
in the world of bike racing. This is an opportunity you would not want to miss.


Ride On
Private Trails

 To show
the level of seriousness and how people are committed to seeing the race be a
success each time. Landowners always open up their private land to allow the
bike trails to pass through their lands.

 Some of these
areas are zones that we will only get to encounter only when participating in
the race. Grab your opportunity and race through the private land as the owners
cheer you on.


The Race
Accommodates Everyone, Not Just The Hard Cores

Paris to Ancaster race is open to anyone to participate.  From adults to kids aged 8 to 12 years. The
full course is 70 kilometers, but there is a shorter version which runs for 20
to 40 kilometers.

If you are not willing to take on the full
course, you can do the shorter version and still get to enjoy yourself. For the
kids, there is a kid's course known as "Let's ride."


These are essential things that you need to
know about the Paris to Ancaster race. Thank me later.
