The 11th Annual Race the Ridge, a cycling stage race presented by Local Ride Bike Shop, is scheduled for the weekend of April 27-28.

Organizers have capped entries at 60 riders per category.

Now in its 11th year, Race the Ridge features one of the province’s only true stage races with three different stages over two days: a road race, a time trial, and a criterium.

The rider with the lowest cumulative time over the three stages wins the overall title.

The courses are always challenging and one of organizer Barry Lyster’s goals is to feature the world-class cycling opportunities in his hometown of Maple Ridge.

The event has become increasingly popular over the years, gaining a supportive following.

“It’s great to see the cycling community support this race over the years, and by doing that it has enabled us to continue to make the event better. I’m excited to see what 2013 will bring,” said Lyster.
