This is a one day cycling adventure on an open course for people who are passionate about their active lifestyles. Beautiful riding on a 100K or 65K (approximate) routes that takes you on the quiet rural roads of scenic Oro. The event starts and finishes at Horeshoe Resort. This is a chance to spin with a motivated group on terrific Canadian asphalt. There will be marshals and directional signs along the course, as well as a rest stop midway complete with replenishments, and a bike mechanic for minor repairs. The staggered start will begin at 9:00AM and close at 9:30AM. Upon finishing, celebrate your accomplishment with food, drink and the camaraderie of other riders at the Apres Ride at Horseshoe Resort.
