King Street Cycles presents the Hyrdrocut Hustle
Enjoy the cycling trails of Waterloo, great food, and warm up at the region’s premier Fatbike event
To many people, a bicycle is a means of transportation. But that doesn’t change the fact that it is also a fun activity that can challenge you amidst a scenic country backdrop you simply can’t enjoy while sitting behind a steering wheel.
On February 25, 2018, bike enthusiasts from far and wide will converge on Waterloo, Ontario, for the fourth annual Hydrocut Hustle, a fatbike ride through a rustic winter landscape on some of the best off-road trails in southern Ontario.
“The meaty tires of a fatbike makes cycling a 12-month activity, no matter the weather,” says Minto Schneider, CEO of the Waterloo Region Tourism Marketing Corporation. “Getting out on the trails, the snow crunching under your wheels, wildlife watching from the cover of the brush, breathing in the cool air makes for an experience unlike any other.”
Hosted by King Street Cycles, the Hydrocut Hustle is a 15-kilometre ride — five laps around a three-kilometre off-road loop — designed for bicycles with tires at least 3.8 inches wide. Designed to be fun for everyone, the day includes The Harmony Lunch providing food and Scratch Labs Hydration and Nutrition onsite with samples.
Only bikes that meet the requirements can register to compete, however, guests are encouraged to come out on any bike they please to enjoy all aspects of the event.
“As more people think about living more healthy lives, bicycling is growing in popularity,” says Minto. “Taking that activity off-road is a great way to see the countryside around Waterloo from a different perspective while challenging yourself with a more difficult, but enjoyable, ride.”
Registration for the Hydrocut Hustle is now open in-store and online. Online and in-store registration is $50.00 with a free event T-shirt for the first 75 registrants. Day of registration is $60.00.
