110 km Challenge
Despite the 110 km route being shorter, it will not disappoint as it was designed to include the best of the 180 km route. This same day ride follows the quiet roads and beautiful countryside of London, Middlesex and Oxford counties. If you are a semi-serious or recreational cyclist with good base training, then this ride is for you. Cyclists will be bused from the starting point in London to the town of Embro, where you will begin your journey. A lunch in Ingersoll and a rest stop at the 75 km mark is included during this ride.
