Hardwood SingleTrack Classic

22 km or 44 km MTB Ride or Race
Fun MTB Poker Ride

Saturday May 26, 2018  –  10th Annual!

Imagine riding or racing on Ontario’s best fast flowy dedicated Mountain Bike trails in a whole new way!

The Hardwood SingleTrack Classic is a new and “secret” 22km loop each year, using the famously popular trails in and around Hardwood Ski and Bike. The “secret” is that we completely mix up all the trails, changing direction, order, features, using many trails open for this event only, and anything else to make sure this is a unique riding and racing experience. For those very familiar with the trails, or those new to Hardwood, the 22 km loop promises to be something completely different as well as fast, flowy and super FUN.

The SingleTrack Classic is personal challenge to ride or race 22km (1 loop), or 44km (2 loops) of the new course.   The Poker Ride is a non-competitive fun ride utilizing the easier trails for those not so keen on the longer distance.

Bring the Family!  The SingleTrack Classic will be hosted in conjunction with the Hardwood BikeFest, offering lots of other Activities, JoyRide Play Area, Clinics, Gear Swap, Bike Demo’s, Expo etc for all participants and friends and family.
