Springbank Road Races Ontario Cup


The 49th Annual Springbank Road Races Ontario Cup was held on May 7, 2017 by the London Centennial Wheelers in London, Ontario’s Springbank Park.

The races were run in the west end of Springbank Park on a 2.2km course comprised of a paved path with varying widths that remained open to pedestrians and, because of its proximity to the Thames River, is a popular geese hang out! Marshals were keeping the wildlife to the sides of the track but were no match for certain dog walkers commandeering the path.

Springbank Park

Springbank is London’s largest park and with thirty kilometers of trails is an ideal location to host the road races. The park runs along the Thames River spanning from Boler Road in Byron to Springbank Drive & Wonderland Road. Because it’s connected with other parks, a person could travel from Byron all the way to downtown London using the paths. With spring in full force, the park made a beautiful backdrop for the images.
