Spring Series 2016

The long-standing Spring Series returns to the Lower Mainland on February 27. The series will consist of 12 road races and 3 time trials. While many consider these “training” races for bigger events later on in the season, the Spring Series consistently offers some of the hardest fought competition all year. These races are run regardless of the weather, so dress accordingly and remember Rule #5. The one exception to the weather rule is snow. We do not race if there is snow on the road.

Where / when:

Review our detailed schedule for parking/sign-on locations, course maps, detailed lap counts.
