Road bike for recreational riding in Mississauga?
I'm looking to buy a used bike to do some recreational riding (off paved roads) in the Mississauga area.
I'm just beginning to familiarize myself with trails, but my question is, will I need a mountain bike or at least a hybrid for trails in the area? Are there trails or paths that can be done on a road bike?
I'm looking to do a 10 to 20km loop off paved roads, away from road traffic. I've seen people bike along the Credit and it seems smooth enough for a road bike, but not sure if it stays that way for 10 or 20km.
