Event Description

Anyone interested in riding the Toronto-Niagara-Toronto (TNT) Hairshirt this year?

The TNT Hairshirt is a personal cycling challenge whose name comes from a medieval form of penance, in which monks wore shirts woven of coarse horse hair. Our Hairshirt ride pits the lonely rider and their bicycle against the road and the elements, and for this reason the organizers provide no support other than a map and encouragement. The Hairshirt was founded in 1978; and TBN assumed sponsorship in 1988. The records below go back to 1992. Owen Rogers managed the event up through 2013.

The group leaves the corner of Duke of York Blvd and Burnhamthorpe Rd in Mississauga at 6:00 AM sharp on the first Sunday on or after June 21. You have until midnight to complete the ride. Participants must wear CSA-, Snell-, or CPSC-approved helmets. Please bring lights if you expect to finish after dusk.  As usual, TBN waives the customary $5 participation fee for non-members.  32 cyclists started the ride in 2013. Why not make 2014 your Hairshirt year?
