    Hotdogs and Handlebars Oct 1st @ Horseshoe Resort
    Check out the new 2012 Norco bikes, ride the trails with Norco factory and team riders and enjoy a hot dog on us!

    As a thank you to all of our riders, and to celebrate our partnership with Norco, we are hosting an end of the season celebration for all those that have ridden and supported the bike park this year. Festivities include a BBQ lunch, after-party at the Crazy Horse Restaurant, prizes and 2012 Norco Demo bikes!

    Our partners at Norco Bikes would like to show their support to Norco bike owners by offering them free lift access for the weekend and the choice to bring a friend for only $10. If you aren’t a season’s pass holder of Horseshoe Resort or a Norco bike owner you can ride all day for $15 or spend the weekend shredding for $25. Bring your wallet, 2012 passes will be on sale at a special early bird price!

    There is also an awesome $99 accommodation offer for those interested in staying with us with the night. All you have to do is reference “handlebars” when calling in. Just another thank you to our riders for showing their support throughout the season.

    The Horseshoe Resort bike park is the newest DH facility in Ontario. Having 5 free ride oriented runs that cater to the very beginner to the most advanced the park has enough features, flow trails and amenities to keep everyone progressing. For more information check out our Facebook page or follow us on twitter for current news on this event and others just like it.

    Anyone know if they will have any small framed 29ers there to demo, so that my Wife could try one on the trails?

    Just thinking that for 2012, maybe we can get this event and others of a similar nature like the Muskoka Festival, etc. on PUBCRAWL's annual race calendar that gets stickied near the top of the forum topic list, so that it becomes more of an overall event schedule, instead of being purely a race schedule?

    Note: this is not intended to imply any deficiency in PUBCRAWL's existing efforts, which are already excellent.

    Hopefully planning is going well stefanb. I'd love to get out to demo a whole new fleet of bikes, not to mention just hanging out with other riders.

    Very cool that Jeff Faulds was there. He's not huge big name but I think he's one of the best all-around riders I've ever met. Not only does he race DH at a really high level but he races XC in Expert and is an ace DJer. Plus, he's one of the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet! :thumbsup:

    He is super awesome and yeah a totally under-rated rider...just shreds it.

    Not sure if anyone actually did come from MTBR but there wasn't a reason not to...They had a ton of different bikes to chose from
