The Icarus trail started off as a steep dirt road which was a long old slog. Winter Park Singletarck xc Mountain bike trails

We then rode back along Serenity to the Hotel.

Ride was about 17 miles in total. We then had a swim and used the hot tub. We then went into winter park and had a look around the shops, and then had dinner at Randis Irish pub but the food was rubbish
