This is a one day cycling adventure on an open course for people who are passionate about their active lifestyles. Beautiful riding on 100K or 65K (approximate) routes that take you through the quiet rural roads of scenic Oro. The event starts and finishes at Horseshoe Resort, and is a chance to spin with a motivated group on terrific Canadian asphalt.

The ride is supported with marshals and directional arrows 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, join us and fellow riders to celebrate with food and drinks at the Apres Ride at Horseshoe Resort. 

Highlights Include:

  • Incredible value - $45
  • Rest stops featuring light snacks (bananas, gels, bars, etc.) and water
  • GPX files - available closer to race day
  • MEC mechanics are available PRE-race for minor last-minute adjustments
  • Mechanical and medical support at rest stations
  • Post-ride festivities at Horseshoe Resort.  For just an extra $10 you can have an awesome lunch with other riders at Horshoe Resort following your ride.  Lunch is served from 12:00pm to 3:00pm.  Please select the $10 Dinner option before hitting the register button.
