Mountain Bike – Cannondale XC Marathon #3 Turkey Point
October 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Turkey Point offers over 65 kms of sandy and hardpacked cross country super fast singletrack trails managed by the Turkey Point Mountain Bike Club (TPMBC) in association with several different landowners. This trail network is a hidden jewel.
The longest downhill run is only about a 20-meter descent, and the trails are always dry. The area is mostly known for farm land, growing tobacco and ginseng, but riders from all over Southern Ontario flock to Turkey Point early in the spring and in the late fall to take advantage of the well-draining soil when most other trails in the province are wet and sloppy.
Many have described these as some of the best flow-trails in the province. The trails are nearly always dry because of the sand-based soil that is so prevalent in the county. The rain usually makes traction better here and keeps the dust down. The only exception to this is some areas of the west side, which have more clay content in the soil and need a few hours or days to dry after a rain, depending on the season.
The official last race of the year! Join us for a great weekend to wrap up racing in 2022!
