Ontario's 3-Day Stage Race Returns! 

The 2014 Crank The Shield is a Go!

People travel from all across North America to be a part of those who hold the honour of Cranking The Shield.  Crank participants describe the courses as the best they have ever ridden anywhere!

Why Crank the Shield?

As Eastern North America's answer to the popularity of mountain bike stage races, Crank the Shield is a 3-day cycling odyssey through Ontario’s stunning Canadian Shield country.  Riders “crank” their way through amazing singletrack, alongside stunning vistas, lakes and exposed rock, and eventually to the finish.  

Along the way, riders aren’t ushered into cramped tents, as one of Ontario's premier summer camps complete with mess halls, cabin lodging and beautiful, swim-able lakes await you at day’s end.  Food has been described as the best at any stage race, with all-you-can-eat buffets including everything imaginable to keep you fueled up for 3 long days in the saddle.  Along the way, you’ll find incredibly well marked trails, friendly, helpful aid and marshal stations, and a top-notch safety staff. If you’re gonna crank, you need to Crank the Shield?
