Event Description

Toronto-Niagara-Toronto Hairshirt Classic Double Century

322 kilometres in one day!

Sunday, June 21, 2015 6 AM

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 designed to cause suffering. 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. Thus, you are responsible for yourself. The Hairshirt was

founded in 1978; and TBN assumed sponsorship in 1988. The records

below go back to 1992.

The group leaves the corner of Duke of York Blvd and Burnhamthorpe Rd

in Mississauga at 6:00 AM 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.

54 cyclists started the ride in 2014, on a great sunny day.
