I definitely can’t get enough of biking to see the fall foliage here in Toronto and discover amazing places I didn’t know yet. So today I decided to enjoy the nice weather and go biking on the Beltline Trail (one of the top 5 fall bikes in Toronto, according to BlogTO) to get to Moore Park Ravine. It’s actually the trail that a lot of people use to go to Evergreen Brick Works, as I’d found out later, or to just take a walk with the dog. Continue reading “Moore Park Ravine Bike Ride”
If you wanna check the fall foliage in Toronto and are into mountain bike rides, Crothers Woods Trail is an excellent option. Located in the Don River valley, Crothers Woods is a escape into nature without going to far from DT. It’s an amazing destination for those who enjoy a trail, especially this time of the year, with the changing leaves. However, this trail is very challenging if you don’t have a mountain bike. I don’t have one, and I found myself having to dismount my bike several times during the ride.
If you’re looking for a place to escape Toronto without living the city, you should go to Glen Stewart Ravine. Located in the Beaches neighborhood, the Glen Stewart is an 11 hectare ravine with a wide diversity of plant and a forest dominated by red oak and red maple – which means that if you wanna see fall foliage, it’s definitely an amazing spot for it. Although I went biking there, which is pretty easy if you live in DT, Glen Stewart Ravine is not so bike-friendly, unless you have a mountain bike for the trails. But I would totally recommend to dismount your bike and go for a nice walk there. The walking trail cuts through the heart of the park, and makes you feel like you’re completely out of town.
Once again, it’s Fall. I can’t believe how fast the Summer was, and I kinda regret not going biking as much as I could on those hot days of July. But I also enjoy this time of the year, the chill in the air, the leaves changing, and how beautiful it is on every bike ride around the city. This is my second Fall here in Toronto, and I had learned a few tricks to be prepared for biking during the season. Continue reading “8 tips for biking during Fall”
