    Night rides GTA

    Just got a good light and looking for someone to do night rides. I'm in Aurora and normally ride Albion and Coulson's Hill.

    Durham Forest is good for night riding (but not allowed on Walker Woods/Glen Major).

    And if you want to ride from your house there is a small set of trails north of Hwy 9, east of Bathurst. It is in the subdivision, but a good loop that makes up 45 minutes.

    Just had the most amazing ride. Went to Albion. Started the ride at 6am, rode for about 1 hour in total darkness with just my Niterider MiNewt Pro 750 illuminating the trail. 750 lumens is more than enough. The battery lasted 1 hour 30 minutes as advertised. By the time it died i didn't need the light anymore.

    Hi Roman,

    A few of us do weekly night rides, Coulsons, Palgrave and Albion Hills, just check the FB Site - Defiant MTB, you will see postings also weekly night rides at the Don.

    Your pretty close to a few of us so if your also interested in joining a weekend ride, more than welcome, there are usually a few destinations posted.
    Defiant MTB - nothing complicated just ride....
