With an existing network of trails, direct access to the lush Copeland Forest, a lift access bike park and over 800km of pristine paved roads, Horseshoe Resort’s cycling program takes full advantage of its natural assets. Plans are already underway to expand Horseshoe’s current biking trails, with a total of 20km of mixed cross-country and downhill terrain expected for completion mid-summer. The planned addition of a pump track will be ideal for honing fundamental cycling skills such as balance, agility, coordination and speed. Guests and visitors both young and old are encouraged to learn and grow their cycling abilities at Horseshoe. Whether pushing off for the first time or taking on a new cycling challenge, Horseshoe Resort’s program provides varying degrees of difficulty and terrain. Once children master the basic, they can test out and hone their technical skills and endurance on the faster-paced cross-country terrain. More experienced riders will enjoy the network of lengthy forested trails and downhill runs of the lift access bike park. Two Ontario Cup cycling events are planned for 2013, making trails suitable for even the most proficient cyclists. The paved roads in Oro-Medonte Township provide excellent conditions for road cycling, and as a testament to the quality, Centurion Cycling events are staged from Horseshoe Resort.
