Admiral’s Cup presented by Thales
The Admiral’s Cup presented by Thales is designed for the more competitive cyclist or those looking to push themselves a little further. Starting August 1, and each week until August 21, riders will be given a specific challenge. Cyclists have exactly one week to complete the challenge in order to be entered into a draw for a prize. Upon completion of the weekly challenge, cyclists must log in to their RaceRoster account to track their ride. Fill in the required information to confirm completion of that portion of the challenge.
Challenge Week 1: August 1 – 7 DISTANCE: 42 km
Harry DeWolf joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1918 as a cadet and retired in 1960 at the rank of Vice-Admiral. To mark his 42 year career, cyclists are being challenged to cycle 42 kms this week.
Challenge Week 2: August 8 – 14 DISTANCE: 16kms
