2021 Preliminary Event Calendars

The Ontario Cycling Association [OCA] would like to announce our Preliminary event calendars for the 2021 Season. The OCA has been working with several organizers over the last few months to create a safe and compatible calendar while staying within guidelines set by the Ministry of Health and the Ontario Government. With physical distancing still being required, events currently on the preliminary calendar will be based on various individual start formats. All dates are subject to change and are at the discretion of Government/Public Health Unit restrictions.  We have broken up our calendars into two groups Sanctioned and Proposed events.  Those events that are able to run meeting all COVID restrictions are released below:
