The Voyageur 200
The mission of this new charity event is to raise “heart health” awareness through a love of bikes and endurance sport. The Nipissing District has hundreds of kilometers of beautiful, remote trail systems and gravel roads that link together to present the perfect venue for an epic gravel bike race. By creating The Voyageur 200 gravel bike race, a secondary objective is to promote the area as a premier destination to explore by attracting riders from across the province. The 100 km and 200 km race courses will start near North Bay’s Waterfront and follow a series of backroads and trails to Mattawa and along the north shore of the Mattawa River back to North Bay. The race will raise funds for the NBRHC Foundation to help local awareness and support groups for a heart and stroke disorder called Aphasia (www.aphasia.ca).
