From the Promoter:
Welcome to the 3rd event of the EASTERN CANADA GRAVEL CUP p/b euro-sports, Ottawa’s endurance sports store. The competitive and sport courses feature challenging gravel and paved roads leading riders out of Wheelers Pancake House, around Lanark using the signature K&P Trail and finishing back at Wheelers. This course was designed to test rider’s fitness, skill and their ability to endure the continuous bursts of power required to roll over the pitchy terrain. This course is the best introduction possible to the single lane treed gravel and will really test the adventure seeker’s legs with its pitchy climbs and non-stop roller-coaster terrain.
Riding from Wheelers this route goes straight to the 3km ATV double-track section of Bathurst Line East. Going around Fagan Lake the route crosses some of the best unmaintained and single lane gravel sections in the area including Hunter and Anderson Side Rds. After a trek on the K&P Trail to the west, the route heads back east to the finish at Wheelers where you can gorge yourself on pancakes and maple syrup.
