Ontario Cup #3 – Mountain Bike – Walden Trails
Nestled amidst the rugged landscape of Northern Ontario, Sudbury is a hidden gem that offers breathtaking natural beauty and endless opportunities for outdoor adventure. Sudbury is a mountain biker’s paradise with over 300 freshwater lakes, sprawling forests, and stunning rock formations.
The second new course returning this season is the picturesque Walden Trails Park, less than 20min outside of downtown Sudbury. Taking in the beautiful Canadian Shield on and off the race course, this won’t be an event you will want to miss. Utilizing the naturally rocky terrain to its fullest advantage when designing the course, the Walden Mountain Bike Club is excited to return to the Ontario Cup calendar since running back-to-back Canada Cup events in 2013 & 14. The third and final round of the MTB OCup series will be a test of technical ability and endurance, where riders with strong technical prowess and who can ride the critical rocky sections lap after lap consistently will shine.
For riders who dabble in both MTB and Road cycling, consider spending the week in Northeastern Ontario and participating in the North Bay Road Provincial Championships, which happens just five days later and creates an amazing weeklong cycling adventure exploring the beautiful but mostly untapped cycling routes throughout the region.
