I am an ex pat and will be returning to Toronto for a few weeks at the end of August. I am attending a wedding in Ottawa and am thinking about cycling from Toronto to Ottawa. My family will be driving, so I do not need to carry anything that I will not need on the ride. I have checked out a few routes and looks like HWY 7 will work. I have driven to Ottawa a few times, but have always taken Hwy 401. Has anyone ever cycled this stretch of rode (on Hwy 7) between Toronto and Ottawa? Is this a reasonably bike friendly road?
The route works out to be just over 370 km. I have ridden quite a few 200 mile rides (320 km) in the past. I am not worried about the distance, but would like to hear from anyone that may have done this before.
Any advice would be appreciated.
