    TT training routes in Greater Toronto Area

    Can any Torontonians (who I hope are) here recommend some good routes to ride for TT training? Good as in having a minimal # of traffic lights and stop signs, flat terrain, minimal cars and pedestrians to dodge, gives you about a 45-60 minute ride at ~40 km/h.

    Routes that are in the Richmond Hill and Markham area are most ideal for me, but I'd also be interested in other areas as well.

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you tried Dufferin Street north of Major Mac? I usually ride north of there (as far west as Kleinburg) and there are some good roads with minimal stops, right up to Hwy 9.

    Also if you really want flat and low hassle try Oakville and Milton. I've been out there many times and there are few hills in certain areas and few stops. I see more TT folks out there than out in the Jane/Hwy 9 areas.

    Thanks again! I took a quick look at the Duff + Major Mac area on Google Maps and can see it looks very promising. If I'm looking to save my legs for when I actually get to that area rather than ride all the way up there from where I live, then is there a place nearby that I could park a car? Do any of those golf courses mind that I "park 'n' go" as far as you know?

    Cheers

    Check for schools or plaza's (mini malls) to park at.
