As my sig shows, I'm into the Ride to Conquer Cancer for a fund raising event. Going to be so nice to do it on a road bike this year ;)

I have been putting together a list of S. Ont events on a spreadsheet while I consider which ones to do. I just pasted it in and maybe it worked. I did not include events like the RTCC and the 2 day Tour for Kids because registration is now closed. There are also some MS rides not on the list and the Ride for Heart. Of these I am doing Collingwood and a couple of others to be determined.

I would love to do the Hilly Hundred but Bancroft is a long drive from Toronto and I doubt I have any riding buddies that would want the punishment

I am doing the Ride To Conquer Cancer in Ontario and would like to do the mid week series Crit races in Mississauga.

I may try some of the other longer rides if I find the right one.

Hey chainstay, thanks for that list!!

I think I may be doing the Ottawa Medio Fondo as well. I have never done any type of event like this and 170km may be out of my reach. I know 100km I will be good with.

The other one I am looking at is the Tour de Trent. I went to school in Oshawa and my wife in Peterborough so it may be a good chance to visit our old haunts.

Going to Defi Sportif in Montreal the last week of April. This is TT one day and a RR the next. I am a para cyclist and this is one of the few events this year that is put on for para cyclists. The event will be held at the Gilles Villeneuve race track.

I'm doing the Ride to Conquer Cancer (Ontario) in June and the Steve Bauer Canfondo ( in the Guelph area in September. The Canfondo will be my first century ride. I hope. ;-)

I'm from Essex County, AKA the Prairies of Ontario, and there's not much in the way of events in my region, so I pick a couple to focus on.

Anyone do the Mid Week Crits in Mississauga?

I have watched a few times but I am gearing up to do them this year, not sure how many I will do but it looks like fun.
I'm watching them too, I want to go on Apr 15th and sign up for their racing program, they look like fun to ride with, and they are very close for me.
