A warm, sunny forecast for the weekend means that conditions will be less than ideal for a truly epic and soul crushing edition of the Hell'n'Back, this Saturday Oct. 7th. This year we have arranged for a 70km short course as well as the traditional 140 km route.
The organizer was out scouting the course yesterday and conditions will be fast and dry for majority of the course. The fast setup will be a road bike or cross bike with wide slicks. Only a few sections of track will require a short dismount.
Marshalls and a paramedic will be along the course and Midweek CC will provide additional water and feeds along the route. The course is marked, but riders will be provided with a map and are expected to be self-sufficient with regards to mechanicals, feeding and navigation.
The ride will start at the Box Grove Community Centre, 7651 9th Line. Markham, Ontario. 9:00 AM. Parking and Washrooms are on site.
Since this is an OCA Sanctioned tour, riders are expected to wear helmets and mind the rules of the road. Participants must hold a UCI Racing License or OCA Citizen Permit. Citizen Permits will be available at the start for an additional $40. * 1-Day Permits will NOT be available *
