    East end of TO...

    I ride mostly up Seaton almost every day, and also Durham and Glen Major. Mostly for exercise.
    Again, like FD1, not too many around here my age ride.... get some strange looks from the young folks when a "40 something" rides up! I want to try Ravenshoe, but haven't been there yet.

    downtown T.O.

    I ride glen major, ravenshoe, the don, hardwood hills, albion hills, mansfield, basically anything within 2 hours of my house. 2-4 times a year at Bromont makes the flatness of Southern Ontario almost worth it. BTW, I prefer going down the hill than up it. I have good directions and insight on all these spots if you need it.

    I'm from Niagara Falls. I can't drive alone yet because i only have my G1. This limits most of my rides to whatever is in riding distance. And that is a lot of sections of the Bruce Trail (actualy for hiking) and other stuff that branches off from it. Road riding is also incorperated. If my dad is willing, we throw the bikes on the roof and we go to St. Catherines to do "the squeezer" route (locals know what it is), Shorthills provincial park, and other stuff around there. Thats about it. Once in a while though, we take a vacation/trip to Hardwood hills or other fun places, but that does not happen often.

    1 hour away from T.O.

    I live in Orillia which is also 1 hour away from Toronto. I ride at Buckwallow in Gravenhurst, Porcupine Ridge in Bracebridge (but not this year because the trails have been closed) and I've just started riding and 8th wander near Orillia. I also ride on trails in North Bay and near South River (when I get the chance to drive north) I'm not sure where you are but I'm sure there are lots of people in your area that ride, no matter which direction and distance you live from Toronto.
