CYCLING AT ITS BEST

Southern Ontario is, without a doubt, an outstanding destination for road cycling. The diversity and multitude of roads cannot be matched anywhere in Canada. The back roads of Ontario will offer up everything from big climbs, winding forest lined roads, open farmland where long, open roads beg you to punch big wattage, small towns and villages offering unique shops and inns where great food is paired with superb local wine and craft beer and , most of all, what Canada is best known for, the warm reception and hospitality that will greet you at every turn.

This site is designed to help you navigate the many different options that can be found while cycling the quiet back country roads of Ontario. Sometimes getting lost can be the best way to explore, but if getting lost is not for you I can help. This site was built with tourism in mind so information such as weather, how to get here, best time to come. etc. can be easily found. Don’t wait, come and see what Southern Ontario cycling has to offer.

SOUTHERN ONTARIO IS MADE FOR CYCLING.

ROUTES

The biggest challenge anyone faces when cycling in a new region is route finding. Now that you have found my site, your problem has now been solved. There are over 30 routes and counting, that are both long and short, that have been vetted for route aspects such as picturesque surroundings, challenging climbs, quaint towns and villages and quality of road. The routes found on this site have been partitioned into distinct regions with their own unique attributes. Each region has been colour coded as has each route found in that area. Finding a route in a region you want to visit is as easy as clicking that regions tab. It could not be easier.

Each route has its own downloadable pdf file and a related link to Ride with GPS where you can easily download the TCX or GPX file and load it onto your GPS unit. Each route also contains a detailed description helping you understand what highlights you will find and what challenges lie ahead. For your convenience all climbing data has been included. In the event of an emergency, taxi and hospital information for each region has been included as well.

EVENTS

Do one event or do them all. There are many wonderful cycling events scattered throughout Ontario for both the experienced cyclist and for those just getting started. Events can range anywhere from chipped races with no charitable component to Gran Fondos to full on charity rides where all proceeds are donated to the intended organization. The biggest event of the cyclng calendar is the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer. It's an epic experience and one not to be missed. Up 5,000 cyclists cover the roads from Toronto to Niagara in a weekend you're not likely to forget.

If smaller events are more your thing, no worries, take your pick, there are plenty of those to choose from as well. Cycists from all different skill levels can participate in the truly amazing experience of clipping in with complete strangers enroute to exporing the remarkable back roads of Ontario. Something new can always be found waiting around every corner. Event organizers go to great lengths to design routes that showcase the best of what the region has to offer. So go on, be bold, try something new.

TEAM BODY GO

Looking for a new challenge? Do you love to cycle or would love to learn? Look no further. TEAM BODY GO is waiting for you. I have spent the better part of the last decade teaching and getting people prepared for whatever individual cycling goals they may have. It could be a Gran Fondo, it could be the challenging Blue Mountain Centurion. We are a team that meets for 10 consecutive weeks in the spring culminating ten weeks later in The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer. The team starts off with easy rides and slowly progresses towards a route of over 100 km on the last week of the training schedule. The routes will showcase all the wonderous beauty that can be found in Southern Ontario and you will do so with great people the entire way.

Do you have the skill set for this team? Am I the right type of person for this team? Check out the link below to find out. I have not met too people who are not extraordinary in their own right who would not be a good fit with the phenomenal people found on this team. If you have a big heart and want to try something new let me know. I'll help you every step of the way. You are not alone. I'll be keeping an eye out for your email.
