Get Ready to Ride!

This year due to COVID-19 our Almaguin Harvest Spin event, like many other events, had to change in order to keep participants and volunteers safe. We decided to postpone the first annual Almaguin Harvest Spin event to next year so you can enjoy all the beautiful routes and delicious foods with all your friends, family and fellow riders without concern.

While cyclists look forward to our event in Fall 2021, we wanted to host 3 separate self-guided tours riders can enjoy to give them a taste of what is to come next year. You can find the dates and route information for each of the rides below, when you register for any of the three rides you have a chance to win a free lunch credit up to $100 for yourself and your team, we will contact the winner the day before the ride with the prize details. All riders are recommended to depart at 10:00 am.

We encourage all participants to ride as safely as possible. Check out the Ministry of Transportation’s Safety Guide

What to expect for Almaguin Harvest Spin 2021

The AHS will feature four villages within the Almaguin region, multiple established & promoted bike routes, and over 15 businesses.
The event day component consists of four cycling route distances targeted to engage all levels of cyclists including beginners, enthusiasts, and experts. The 10KM and 25KM rides will be targeted towards beginners, youth, families, and other riders; the 60KM and 100KM distances will cater to enthusiasts and experts while guiding riders through four villages and seven municipalities. The ride will be fully supported with vehicles, rest areas, and directional signage. In addition, the cycle portion will feature Almaguin’s designated cycling routes, its infrastructure investments, and the extraordinary fall colours.
The routes for the AHS have been chosen in partnership with AIM to ensure a safe and enjoyable ride which includes sections with paved shoulders, low traffic municipal roads, and good visibility. In addition to the optimal riding routes, the event team will work with local agricultural business operators to sponsor ride rest stops at key locations and promote healthy, high energy snack options (locally produced where possible). We will also be working with local farms and restaurants to create a culinary experience after your ride. Vehicle support, including maintenance equipment, first aid supplies, and available space for rider pick-up. The AIM team also maintains a strong relationship with Parry Sound Bikes, who is being approached to offer pre-ride bike inspections (which has been a big hit in previous local youth events). We can’t wait for you to join us at next year’s event!
