“ I am delighted to share my love of the region, of camp life and of cycling. Cycling the rugged terrain of Haliburton is an exhilarating challenge as roads carve and climb through the Canadian Shield, alongside picturesque lakes and villages. This weekend offers a unique opportunity to kick start the season supported by an experienced team of passionate cyclists. There is time to take advantage of many of the camp facilities as well as explore the region. In the span of the weekend you will get a taste of the magic of both camp life and cycling the Haliburton Highlands.”
— Sarah Kronick, Member of the White Pine and La Bicicletta Families.

‘We are eagerly counting down the days until camp! The Haliburton region is one of our favourite areas to spend time on our bikes – with its incredible scenic roads, spectacular views of lakes and rivers. We cannot wait to ride and enjoy the outdoors with you – See you, and your bike, in May.’
— Brad Bradford, Principal, Toronto Hustle


What’s New for 2018:

This year we are extremely fortunate to be joined by members of The Toronto Hustle Team who will be leading some of the more challenging rides.

We are also thrilled to have Luigia Zilli of Bicycle Art on board. Luigia will be hosting an Art Party complete with Prosecco! Participants will leave the session with a completed bicycle themed painting (a great Mothers Day gift). Besides being a talented artist, Luigia is an enthusiastic and experienced cyclist and will help with some of our rides.

Who’s Returning:

Once again, Connie White of The Rad Room will be offering pre and post ride Yoga sessions in front of a warm fire with the backdrop of a placid lake…This can not be beat!


The Cycling Routes:

Our goal is to offer all riders challenging opportunities. We have pro-cyclists, leading the rides and professional coaches available to work with cyclists of any skill level. Based on our knowledge of the area, aided by Strava, we will chart out several options for routes. Routes will be fine-tuned once we ascertain the skill level of participants.

Saturday morning rides:

The longest challenge: will be approximately 110km and will be led by members of the Toronto Hustle Team along with our own Davide Frattini.

The medium challenge: will be approximately 50km and will be led by members of our experienced team. If a more relaxed ride is required we will arrange accordingly.

Sunday morning rides:

There will be two rides. We will plan these according to the rider’s preferences, with one route being longer and more challenging and the other at a more relaxed pace.

All rides will be led by accomplished riders and will be followed by support vehicles. Once routes are finalized, we will provide the downloadable routes.
