Cycling events/races/fundraising question

Hey guys,

Can please someone tell me some details on the cycling events - so basically I thought that every event is a race (I've never participated, but want to). Appears that NOT every event is a race, which disapoints me. True I am new to the sport and will finish among the last, but I want a 20-30km race on which they would make records of the finish times, standings and so on, just like on a normal race.

Question is - how to find races? Looks like most fundraising events are just "rides".

Where can I look for information on Toronto/GTA races? I want to race, not just ride, I want to see everybody around me rushing, trying to bypass each other - this is what pumps up my adrenaline.

I tried mynextrace.com but they don't distinguish between the rides and the races.

Thanks!

Hi as GregB mentioned to check Ontario Cycling Association websites for races and events, as well as you can look for local bike clubs to your nearby location. Sometimes they organize group rides or local races.

Here's an event on Saturday September 15. Tour de Greenbelt
It doesn't sound like its a race, but looks like it would be interesting. 4 different rides from 10K to 100K. Cost $50.00 per person. I have a 50% off Groupon promo, valid for 4 more days, and willing to share.
Contact me if interested.
