Paul's Dirty 100

Ganaraska Forest, Ontario

Paul's Dirty 100 began as a memorial ride for an avid racer, Paul Rush, who loved a long ride and a hard slog. Over the years, this 100-kilometer ride has been revamped and reworked into a challenging, but very ride-able, network of trails. Just over an hour's drive from Toronto, this Epic features more than 7,000 feet of climbing through the Ganaraska Forest, including pine plantations, rolling hills, twisty-turney dark corners and roller-coaster fire roads.
