Here are some of the places I ride. There are a billion places within a few hours of Toronto, and these are a few of my favourites. I add more rides as I become more familiar with the trails. This page is far from complete. If you have a trail to add, comment on this page, or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I’ll add it to the list, with a nod of credit to you.
- The coolest place in the world.
- 110,000 square feet of fun.
- Great for a quick training ride.
- Great with the kids.
- Who cares if it’s indoor–it never rains, snows, or gets dark.
DIRECTIONS: 150 Bullock Drive, just east of McCowan
- Fast, flowy trails.
- The Hog’s Back is fun. The Hog’s Back Bypass is also fun.
- You can ride for hours and never see another person
- The west side of the road is fun. The east side is more challenging.
- There are no facilities.
- Lots of poison ivy.
DIRECTIONS: Beagle Club Road (Harwood, ON), just north of Highway 45.
- There are no maps, it’s a bit secretive, but lots of fun.
- The unknown trails are killers.
- Get a guide–everyone who rides there is happy to show you around. Even strangers.
- Tough, urban, hard packed trails.
DIRECTIONS: Loblaws parking lot (11 Redway Road). The trailhead is at the east end of the lot. There are a billion other access points. Find them.
