All riders will travel west with the junior categories turning around about 2.8 km down the highway and the remainder turning around at the end of the highway, about 6 km away.

Riders will head back towards the start, but will turn right at Beaver Meadow Road. After crossing the bridge over Highway 104, everyone will make another turn to the right, this time onto Beaver Mountain Road. Follow this road to the top of the hill at the entrance to the provincial park.

The road race stage starts on Beaver Mountain Road at the intersection with Beaver Meadows Road. At the signal, turn left onto Beaver Meadows Road and head north across Highway 104 to the intersection with Highway 4. An RCMP officer will be providing traffic control so that you may turn right safely onto Highway 4.

Continue for 9.6 km to the roundabout. Once in the roundabout, take the second exit in order to cross over Highway 104. Enter the second roundabout and, once inside, take the first exit in order to get on Addington Forks Road. Continue for 10.5 km, following Beaver Meadow Road into the right-hand turn. Along this stretch of road will be the feed zone. After completing the required amount of laps for your category, you will turn left off onto Beaver Mountain Road. Take another left-hand turn onto a segment of gravel for 300 metres until you reach the gate to the race track. Enter the track and do 1.5 laps to finish the race, Roubaix style.

There will be podium presentations for the general classification only, immediately after the completion of road race stage. Regular BNS points will be awarded for this event.
