Route Support

Mechanical support is available to riders in the Century and Classic Tours.  ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) provides communications services on these two routes. You'll see these invaluable volunteers along the roadside monitoring the event and managing communications. The Ontario Provincial Police will also be present for your added safety and to assist at some busy intersections.

If you need to abandon the tour, please notify one of the following:

  • any ARES representative
  • by email: send your Bib# and name to the OBC Office
  • by phone: leave your Bib# and name at the OBC Office (answering machine)

No transportation support on Sunday:

  • Sorry, riders that can not ride home on Sunday are responsible for their own transportation home. See FAQ #12.
