Gravel – Paris to Ancaster – Hamilton, ON

April 28 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Gravel rider riding a trail in muddy racing kit text reads "gravel"

For over a century the roads of northern Europe have been home to the toughest bicycle races in the world. The most famous of these, Paris to Roubaix, takes place each spring over brutal cobblestone roads that have been preserved in their historic condition for over 100 years. Inspired by this classic race, the Paris to Ancaster has taken place since 1994 over the roughest farm lanes, trails and gravel roads we can find. We welcome the largest field of riders assembled in Canada for the Paris to Ancaster 2024. Join them on April 28 2024 to become part of the history of this unique race, Canada’s Spring Cycling Classic.



Raise money for St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation

You already know that Paris to Ancaster is Canada’s Spring Cycling Classic, but did you know this event is also coined a Ride for Research? That’s because for the past eight years, the organizers of Paris to Ancaster have partnered with St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation and invited race participants to ride and raise funds to support groundbreaking research at St. Joe’s.

We know, the words groundbreaking research sound great, but what do they really mean?

The research being done at St. Joe’s changes lives. That’s why we’re inviting you to consider raising funds for St. Joe’s during your ride, or simply choose to make a gift at the time of registration. Either way, you’ll be helping the Hospital that helped so many of us over the past few years as we struggled with the impact and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you will join us on this Ride for Research.
