Toronto Bikers

Just curious as to where all you Toronto guys bike!! I'm talking about mountain bikes, like the trails and such. Also have any of you been to any TBN outings? I'm looking into going on the Glen Major thing this Saturday by TBN, and i'm going to that education night thing today by some speaker guy from Sandy's Cycle. I just bought a bike, and i'm looking forward to doing a lot of riding and hopefully to join a club which have people around my age (19), and trails..

the Don has lots and lots of single track, some blah, some semi technial off camber stuff. There are reviews at mtbr.com on the don and the Humber, I havent ridden the humber yet, but Im going to sooner or later this summer.

Nice site, with tons of reviews! I've been to the Don one i think...well i go through it from leslie entrance and then park somewhere, and then pick the rest. AT the entrance, there's a big parking lot with lots of cricket players and stuff, and then there'se a little path into the trees. Some stuff are pretty crazy there. I just have to find more info on the humber, on where I can park my car first heh...

As far as riding the don goes, you can park at Pottery Rd, & Bayview. There is a dirt patch on the north side of Pottery Rd. just east of Bayview. There is a coupple of trails starting off from that point north, follow the lower trail north, you will cross a driveway into the sewage plant, carry on north from there, its a great trail, you can go right up to Taylor Creek Park from there, Those are probobly the busiest trails in the Don, Have fun, and Keep the Rubber Side Down.

Hey I was at the workshop too... Did you see my bike at the back of the room? Isn't it the cutest bike in the world? I just love it!
I ride with TBN pretty much every sunday. But I'm more in the road/touring stuff. I tried MTB once and I kept falling and at the end of the day I was covered with dirt...

AquariaGuy, nope on the East side of bayview just west of the rail bridge? there is a dirt lot on your right, it looks very unofficial, but thats one place to start. you can also go to the Loblaws on Redway (not the one on Moore @ Bayview) there is access to the driveway I mentioned earlier.

also OCR ride tuesdays at 6:30, join the group and go for a spin if you wish. They say all are welcome.

The Redway Loblaws is south off of Millwood, east of Laird.

Right here.

Edit, sorry, I fixed the URL
