Hairshirt Classic Double Century

Hairshirt Classic Double Century

June 23 2019
Mississauga, Ontario, Canada
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. The Hairshirt was founded in 1978; and TBN assumed sponsorship in 1988. The records 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. You must have lights if you finish after dusk. 

This event is organized by the Toronto Bicycling Network, Inc. You are responsible for yourself. Plan to arrive at the start by 5:30 AM in order to join in the 6 AM mass start. The Hairshirt is not a race. You must obey all traffic laws and signs. If you come across someone in need, try to help out. Reporting your time is on the honour system. Results are posted on the TBN Hairshirt web page.Hairshirt Classic Double Century
