Drop Bags: We will have drop bags for both distances. Please keep these small as we have to transport them and they should only contain what you need (Food + Drink) to get you through the ride. Please put your name on your bag with your ride distance. They will be transported to the aid station and then returned to the start for when you finish.

The rink is directly across from the Avonlea RCMP Detachment. We do not have a Beer Gardens or Liquor License. Don’t Drink and Drive.
