Posted by Editoress on 05/17/11
Nith River Road Race (Ontario Cup Road Series #4) in Wellesley, ON on Sunday May 22nd
Cash prizes total over $3000.00.
ExtremeRoad.com is pleased to present the all new Nith River Road Race on Sunday May 22nd in Wellesley, Ontario, just north of Waterloo. This is race #4 of the prestigious Ontario Cup Road Series.
Action-packed 16.5 km course through the towns of Wellesley, Lisbon, Hampstead and Nithburg – it isn’t flat. One of the main features is the uphill full hairpin turn onto the mile-long finishing “straight” with a short out-of-the-saddle climb in the final 500 m. Lots of new pavement and conveniently placed paved shoulders along the route, particularly closer to the finish. It should be a great tune-up for Nationals. And, of course, there will be lots of scenic views of the spectacular raging Nith River.
Indoor registration at the Wellesley Community Centre, although with the great warm weather forecasted for this weekend, it might be outdoors just to enjoy some spring sunshine. There is plenty of paved parking at the Centre/Arena complex. Local amenities in town that will be open Sunday include the general store as well as the Nith River Chophouse restaurant (licensed) both located at the main intersection in Wellesley two blocks from registration. The local gas station will not be open, however, so plan accordingly.
One thing to note is that the finish & feed zone are located 900 m from registration/parking and there is no parking permitted in that area – it is reserved for residents only. It will be possible to drive up close to that area using side streets in order to drop off people/supplies, but then you must drive back out of the area and park back at registration.
On-line pre-registration is mandatory at www.ontariocycling.org.
On-line pre-registration closes at midnight Thursday May 19th.
