October 1/09 12:49 pm - The Kawartha Rube-eh?

Posted by Editoress on 10/1/09

Paris–Roubaix is a one-day professional bicycle road race in northern France near the Belgian frontier. Since its beginning in 1896, it started in Paris and ended in Roubaix (hence the name). This famous race takes place each spring over brutal cobblestone roads that have been preserved in their historic condition for over 100 years.

Motivated by this classic race, the first annual Kawartha Rube-Eh? is ready to be kicked off over trails, rural gravel and paved roads in the City of Kawartha Lakes. Combined with unpredictable fall weather and a large field of riders it will become an annual classic cycling experience for everyone from average riders to Canadian Olympians. Join us on October 3, 2009 to become part of this exceptional event.

A 70 km elite course and a 35 km sport course starting at the fairgrounds in Fenelon Falls.

Both distances are best suited to mountain bikes, cyclocross bikes or hybrid bikes. You must be prepared to take care of your own mechanicals emergencies so carry a spare tube, patch kit and pump.

The event goes on in all weather so bring rain gear and warm cycling clothes.

  • Great draw prizes!   

  • Snack table!

  • Podium recognition for top 3 finishers in 70km Elite event! 

  • Trophy for 1st place and medals for 1st 2nd and 3rd plus flower bouquet like the Paris-Roubaix.

  • Presentations at 2:00pm.

  • Entry fee: only $35.00

Note: This is a cycling event, not a race.
