HOTN 2015 - Sunday May 10th

IT'S HERE!!  COMING THIS SUNDAY!!!

UPDATE - Both complete courses are now fully marked. We have arrow signs AND painted arrows on roads at every intersection.  We are excited to tell you that we are going back to the original 90km Hell of the North course. Same off road sections as always but we cut out all the long road and gravel sections south of Musselmens lake. This will keep things fast and exciting and you will be able to get through it all with 2 fully stocked feed zones courtesy of POWERBAR!  The amazing Heck of the North course is staying the same. No need to change perfection. This route has some of the areas best climbs and a gravel road section at the 45km mark that makes this event truly EPIC. 2 mass start events on Sunday morning - These are open to everyone of all abilities holding an OCA license. 8:30 am HELL of the North 8:45am HECK of the North.
Hell of The North
Our 7th annual 'Hell of the North' will be held early Sunday May 10th 2015! Starting and ending at the Ballantrae Community Center  (HOTN 2015) The epic spring classic with 90 kilometers of the most amazing dirt and off road sections to make this truly one of the hardest events of the year! It promises to test your early season fitness. As always the HOTN route will include rail trails, dirt roads and some of the area's nicest climbs. Cyclocross and mountain bikes for this wave. There are sections you will have to dismount. Road bikes are not recommended, MTB shoes and pedals are!   ***BEST CONDITIONS EVER FOR HOTN 2015 - Road bikes might be a possibility, it really is that dry!!***  
HECK OF THE NORTH
Returning for it's 4th year, we have an incredible, alternative route called the HECK  (HOTN 2015) This is for anyone who wishes to be tested but doesn't want to dismount or ride through a farmers field. The HECK of the North is a 70 kilometer route that will still include many of the amazing roads used in the HOTN but there are no off-road sections, farmers fields, or the nasty trench. This means you can ride a regular road bike on this beauty (leave the $10,000 bike at home though!). Both routes are sure to test you and both promise to be an amazing day out on the bike!
Entry to either length of ride includes a catered lunch and a day you won't soon forget! 200 rider limit.
                                                                                          8:30 start for the HELL and 8:45 for the HECK

Hell and Heck of the North went off this past Sunday in beautiful conditions as 112 riders spent their Easter morning challenging themselves with the hardest event on the Ontario calendar. We want to thank all the volunteers who came to help us out and a big thank you to all the riders who made this event what it was! We'll see you next year!
