Race the Ridge Coming This Weekend

Race the Ridge, presented by Local Ride Racing, is happening this weekend, April 29 and 30 in Maple Ridge, BC. Registration closes on April 27 at 6:00 pm. There is no registration after this time. Click here to register.

This 3-event cycling race has been an annual fixture in the Maple Ridge area for over 15 years. With its close proximity to Vancouver, and its wealth of rural roadways, Maple Ridge makes the perfect host to the over 200 riders who will come to challenge one of BC’s toughest bike races.

Race the Ridge starts on April 29 with two races, the Thornhill Road Race and the Thornhill Time Trial. The Thornhill Road Race was last used in 2014, while the time trial is a brand new course for the event. “I am very pleased to be returning to Thornhill for our events. This is a very special area in our community, and the residents here have been very supportive of our race,” commented race director Barry Lyster.

On Sunday, April 30, between 10 am and 3 pm, cyclists take over the streets of down town Maple Ridge for the Town Core Critierum. This fast paced, short circuit course utilizes closed streets surrounding Memorial Park and adjacent city blocks. With omnium point bonus primes up for grabs, one can expect some explosive, animated racing.
