A new family-friendly winter bike race and festival is coming to Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Muskoka on Saturday February 10, 2018!
The 1st annual Muskoka Winter Bike Festival gives you the chance to experience winter in Muskoka in a whole new way! The event will feature racing on 11km of groomed and hard-packed trail around the historic resort’s Lakeside Golf Course. Hosted by The Bike Shop, the event has categories for experienced racers, for people new to winter riding, and for kids (1.5km). Racers will also enjoy the chance to ride a section of the event across a stretch of Penninsula Lake.
Registrants for the riding event will also enjoy fat bike product demos by The Bike Shop and Algonquin Outfitters, live music, a bonfire, a chili feast, and beer sampling by Muskoka Brewery. Non-racing spectators can purchase a wristband for $10, which gives them access to post-race festivities. The biking during the day is also the prelude to Muskoka Brewery’s Untapped with Muskoka Blues Connection food and music event at Deerhurst Resort later in the evening.
