From the Promoter:
Welcome to the 5th and final event of the EASTERN CANADA GRAVEL CUP p/b euro-sports, Ottawa’s endurance sports store. This final event of the series is the longest and most challenging of all competitive courses featured in the Gravel Cup. It features 85 km’s +1090m of mixed roads leading riders through the best gravel roads Lanark has to offer. It starts with the pack splitting Bathurst Line West, a 9km challenging section of technical ATV double track before finishing back at Wheelers Pancake House through a scenic road winding through the sugar bush. This course will be one that will be talked about for years to come, and will ultimately crown the Gravel Cup Champions. This year’s 47 km sport course also offers a great sample of the pristine gravel found in the area, which will challenge every enthusiast.
Beginning at Wheelers the route will immediately take a 9km section of ATV Double-track on Bathurst Line West. There are too many signature sections on this route to list; K&P Trail, “forest access road” Ranger Camp, North Shore along Dalhousie Lake, and the “Stairway to Heaven” climb on Conc 12 to name a few before arriving back at Wheelers to your choice of Pancakes and sausages.
