The first annual Nothern Pass cycling adventure benefiting the Princess Margaret Hospital debuts August 13 in Gravenhurst, Ont. Designed as a fully supported cycling event for passionate riders in mind, the event brings riders on the beautiful roads around Lake Muskoka. Funds raised from the riders will go towards the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
Riders who participate are in for a fun day on the bike. Whichever route they choose the ride is fully supported and aims give riders the experience they would expect from the world’s best cycling events.
The three route options all start and finish at the Grace & Speed at Muskoka Wharf in Gravenhurst. The 40 km route goes towards Bracebridge before heading back with one stop at the 20 km mark with complimentary nutrition and water for riders. The 100 km route is a bit more challenging and features two stops along the picturesque roads. Participants can choose to ride with their team or groups of their own skill level to ensure the right pace and a memorable experience.
