The Cannon Ball 300

Named to commemorate the short lived production of the Cannon Ball bicycle manufactured in Thorold, Ontario from 1895 to 1898, the Cannon Ball 300 route was created as an introductory 300km bikepacking route that allows riders to gain experience bikepacking without having to choose between weeks away from life's responsibilities and a multi-day adventure.

The route connects some of Ontario's most under-utilized rail trail, waterfront trail and greenbelt routes for all skills and adventuring cycling disciplines. 

There will be a Grand Depart style, self supported race informally starting in Dundas, Ontario on August 24th 2019. Sign up and more info at and follow along for updates at @cannonball300route on Instagram.
