For over a century the roads of northern Europe have been home to the toughest bicycle races in the world. The most famous of these, Paris to Roubaix, takes place each spring over brutal cobblestone roads that have been preserved in their historic condition for over 100 years. Inspired by this classic race, the Paris to Ancaster has taken place for the past twenty three years over the roughest farm lanes, trails and gravel roads we can find. Combined with unpredictable spring weather and the largest field of riders assembled in Canada, it has become a classic race experience for everyone from average riders to Canadian Olympians.
P2A does have some shorter distances appropriate for new youth riders including a Kids race.

In early 2013, youth development was targeted as one of the ABA’s most important Strategic Objectives in the next five years and beyond. Since youth participation at Alberta Cup Provincial Series races has generally been very low, it was identified that the youth needed a series of their own focused on fun and inclusivity. This led to the development of the Trailblazers Youth Racing program. The proposed series identifies several key principles that will be the focal point for attracting new riders to the sport. They are:
FUN. keeping the experience positive so youth continue to come back
Accessibility. taking down every possible barrier to entry for youth of all ages and abilities
Freedom. giving youth the choice to choose a race that suits their specific abilities
