Albion Hills Conservation Area
16500 Regional Rd 50
Caledon, ON

**IMPORTANT NEWS – THE GREAT ALBION ENDURO IS GOING ON A ONE-YEAR HIATUS FOR 2018.  DUE TO RIGOROUS DEMANDS ON THE ORGANIZERS’ SCHEDULE, WE WILL TAKE A ONE-YEAR BREAK AND BE BACK BIGGER THAN EVER FOR 2019!  SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE

Take one of Southern Ontario’s most popular riding centres, switch directions on half the trails, add some unique unmarked trails, AND add a chunk of pure singletrack in the Palgrave tract and several kms of rail trail, and what do you get? The GREAT Albion Enduro, of course!

Last year’s sunny skies and upwards of 320 people enjoyed heavenly riding, and and we’re hoping to build on our success for 2018!

We are excited to have this bike friendly brewery, The Second Wedge, on tap for the day! Enjoy one free beer after the event, then grab a few more for a great price and enjoy the evening, the band, and all the fun!! Check out their GREAT brewery HERE – stop in their amazing brewery after a ride in Durham Forest!!!

With a shorter  course of 25km, AND a 40km loop including portions of Palgrave, there is something for everyone! Add a 2-lap, 80+ km race, and you have a truly epic, 3.5 – 7 hour romp through some of the funnest – yes, funnest, trails in the GTA!

Note: we are keeping much of the trail direction a secret!! at 40kms, who has time to pre-ride anyways!!!

 

Get involved and sponsor this awesome event!

We are still looking for both title and more presenting sponsors for this event, but have already garnered support from the Chronos/GIRO team, Staran Cycles, and as always, Havy and the team from NORCO!

Thanks to our sponsors!

The Course and Pre-riding
Think Bacwards!  While some ride really well in reverse, and others not so much, so we’ll have an awesome mix, lots of taped off 2-way sections, and will do a nice 5km of mixed trail in Palgrave, – The short road between both destinations makes this a true off-road Enduro, with just enough flats for a break and a chance to look at the beautiful scenery! While we will be posting a rough course map – we are keeping the trail flow a secret – because, hey, there aren’t enough secrets anymore, and, we don’t want to encourage riding the opposite direction on the one-way trails at Albion. Palgraves trails have been carefully selected, with a liaise with local land users, to ensure minimal crossings and interactions with other users.

Afterparty, Petting Zoo and Ferris Wheels
Just wanted to get your attention – no carnival, but there is an afterparty with live entertainment!  We encourage everyone to camp out at Albion, and stick around for post race BBQ, a free Beer to those 19+ and more available for sale! The chalet will stay open as long as people are kicking around!

PRE-RIDING
No. There isn’t. It’s just that simple. Don’t try too hard to predict the course – just ride Albion and Palgrave an whole bunch, and you’ll have a good idea! The Albion portion wont be marked until Friday, September 14.

Event price includes:

Well marked/marshalled trails with 2 feed stations
Custom event Shirt and Race Plate
Free Beer at ride’s end (19 & over)

  • We have Pfaff/Apex Race Photography BBQ nights, Pizza nights, and lots of fun extras!

The course will be pre-marked roughly for mid-June, and available to ride every day, weather permitting, up to race day.

As host to the last two Provincial Championships, Sir Sam’s Ski and Ride moves into the 4th spot on the Series. Early July in Haliburton is cottage time, and the riding is as hot as the weather! This is arguably the best and most exciting course on the circuit – but what isn’t arguable are the stellar accommodations! The Bishop family roll out the red carpet for our riders, treat us to a fun and affordable Saturday night banquet, and provide the best venue on the series!

**IMPORTANT INFO RE: 9:00AM YOUTH RACE

Due to difficulty creating a fun, not too hilly 9am youth race at the bottom, we are again running this start at 3:00pm on SATURDAY!  Pre-riding for the main races will shut down from 2:45 to 4pm to accommodate this youth race, at the top of the hill.  The carpet will be open, we encourage everyone to come up and encourage the kids on the 2.5km upper course!

**Keep in mind: many age categories can race at 9 OR 10am – so depending on the TIME you registered, you may be racing Saturday or Sunday – some kids are even going to race both!

The Course and Pre-Riding

The course will be pre-marked roughly for mid-June, and available to ride every day, weather permitting, up to race day. Please use the drop box during the week!  As with every year, expect a fun, dynamic course, just the right amount of climbing, technical, and of course, tremendous views of gorgeous Eagle Lake and the Haliburton Highlands!

Saturday night Banquet!

You wont wanna miss the annual Banquet at 6pm Saturday night!  Email  chris@sirsams.com or call 705-754-2298 to book dinner tickets. Cost is $22.50 each and includes tax.

Accommodations and Camping

If you really want to stay in style, check out Sir Sam’s Inn, just 500 meters from the ski hill! While there are cheaper accommodations nearby, this is the place to do it in style! Haliburton books up quickly – reserve a place soon! Silver Eagle Cottages books up early, as do most places in Haliburton. Consider renting a cottage for a long weekend for for the full week!
