The ac­tive and out­doorsy in south­west­ern On­tario are fa­mil­iar with the roads to the ski-re­sort town of Colling­wood when they’re cov­ered with the snow. The vil­lage at Blue Moun­tain is a bit qui­eter in Septem­ber, no doubt, but it fills up with Span­dex-clad en­durance types when Cen­tu­rion Blue Moun­tain comes around. The event has a rac­ing vibe, giv­ing the op­tion to sign up for the Gran Cen­tu­rion Stage Race, com­bin­ing the 80-km ride on Satur­day with the 40-km ride on Sun­day. If the cen­tury on Satur­day is enough for you, bring your fam­ily along for an or­ga­nized fun ride on Fri­day and spend Sun­day re­cov­er­ing and scop­ing out the ven­dors in the vil­lage.
