Rouge Valley North to Uxbridge

We wanted to see if we could connect some of our disparate explorations northward to Uxbridge through trail systems, conservation areas and open, quiet farmland roads and we figured it out y’all. This ride is going to take you on a north-east climb through as much forest and rural farm as possible, it’s quite the elevation gain – but do it at your pace. This is a 135km route that includes a little but of every kind of off-road bike fun.  Friendly PSA, bike adventures are for everyone, we walk our bikes and stop for snacks All. The. Time. Don’t let anyone tell you that’s not cool. For all that climbing, you’ll get rewarded with some pretty fun descents throughout. 

Hamilton to Brantford Rail Trail

The Hamilton-Brantford Rail Trail is flat, fun and scenic. The ride is beautiful; surrounded by lush conservation areas, endless farm fields and great views. AND…there are some twists if you adventure just off the path — conservation area trails, gravel roads and even some single-track. This ride is the ‘choose your own adventure’ kind of route that we love – fun for any level. 

The Leslie Street Split

A trip to the Spit for us, means getting to the lighthouse, one of the most southern points of Toronto. Along the way, you can choose your own adventure with different routes along with countless points of interest, hideouts, artscapes, wildlife-watching spots or gravel grindin’ goodness. Lots of fun, with no cars. The Spit has something for everyone, on any type of bike, at any riding level. 

Rouge Valley North

We grew up in the Rouge Valley, and we love exploring the forest in our backyard. The newly named, ‘Rouge Urban National Park’ has so many interconnected segments, routes and trails that allow you to choose your own adventure.

Direction? North. Destination? Bob Hunter Memorial.

A Day on The Toronto Islands

Once on the island, the 14 km route is straight forward and can be found on All Trails. However, we highly recommend stopping along the way to explore the maze of smaller pathways that snake through the neighbourhoods on the island.

Keep your eyes peeled as your approach Centre Island Park and you might even be lucky enough to get a glimpse of an escaped peacock or other wildlife native to the island.
