Hell & Heck of the North, Ballantrae Ontario

The most epic early spring classic of them all. The Hell of the North is exactly that....HELL! 


Our 11th annual 'Hell of the North' will be held early Sunday April 21st 2019! Starting and ending at the Ballantrae Community Center. 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 Hell of the North 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!


Returning for it's 7th year, we have an incredible, alternative route called the HECK. 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. There is only one hard packed gravel section. The rest of the course is 95% asphalt. Both routes are sure to test you and both promise to be an amazing day out on the bike!
