Early Autumn's Answer to the Paris to Ancaster. Spectacular ride, amazing BBQ - don't miss this last hurrah!

Tour de King is back for 2012 and this time we're going the opposite direction! Starting at Cold Creek Conservation Area and finishing at Seneca College's King campus, this point-to-point ride truly has something for everyone. With a mix of trail, paved and gravel roads, this is one ride that truly has a little bit of everything. Designed for mountain and cyclocross bikes, this course features great off road sections along the ORTA trail as well as the flowing, IMBA designed trails at Centennial. Upon arrival at Seneca, riders are treated to an amazing BBQ and live music. We'll even give you a bus ride back to your car at Cold Creek!

Can't ride but still want to be a part of the event? We're looking at volunteers for Tour de King, email Matt at
