Canyon Belgian Waffle Ride

May 03 2020
San Marcos, California, USA

The most unique cycling event in the country, the Canyon Belgian Waffle Ride, is back for its ninth edition of pedaling perversity. Created as an extremely challenging cycling event in the spirit of the great one-day spring classics of Belgium, the Canyon Belgian Waffle Ride (BWR) will return to North County San Diego on May 3, 2020. There will also be a shorter, and only half as painful Belgian Wafer Ride.

The Canyon Belgian Waffle Ride is a one-day cycling fête nestled in the shadow of the area’s tallest peak, the famous Double Peak, which will cause serious pain near the end of the two-wheeled march of death that’s become known as the Hell of the North (County).
