    i'd also check with the bus people...they go to the same places and have the ability to drop you off between stations

    you can ride the trails out here in Georgetown, and we have a Go station, and many bus stops through town. Scotsdale Farm would be easy to get to by The go
    it tied the room together man!

    Or you can ask a local to drive you somewhere and have a riding buddy for the day, save a few bucks and lots of valuable riding time.

    Oh yeah, I forgot you already mentioned this. Apologies.

    Are you sure you can take your bike on a GO train? I don't know - just wondering.

    Almost forgot - check out any trails that might be out in the Oshawa area. According to the map the trains go out that far and i'm sure there must be some worthy trails in that area.

    Good luck!

    yeah you can take your bike on the trains but only at certain times of the day

    heres the times copied from the website

    "You may take a bicycle on any GO Train on a Saturday, Sunday, or statutory holiday. On weekdays, due to rush-hour crowding, you may not take them on trains scheduled to arrive at Union Station between 6:30 and 9:30 a.m. or depart from Union Station between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. Bicycles are also prohibited inside Union during those times."

    no apology necessary its all good

    ell if i work more than 5-6 hours a day ..thats a long day! There's tons of jobs out here..and I don't mean just the low paying jobs...as are typical. I make more money out here than i did in Ontario!
    they just finished up the big bike festival here called Crankworcx...some dude tried a backflip with a 360deg last night in the slopestyle......what an awesome attempt!

    I think Greyhound have a limited service to Blue Mountain. Give them a call for details.

    However, they managed to strand my son in Montreal the one time we used them. Inept is the best I could describe my dealings with them.
    It's only pain......

    Greyhound runs busses often to barrie where you would have to transfer to the bus that does the Barrie to owen Sound route. These buses run 3 times a day and go right through Collingwood and there is actually a scheduled stop right at Blue mtn. The stop is locatred at the Blue mtn Inn.

    You're going to have to do a lot of road riding if you take the train to Oshawa. Nothing in the immediate area that would be worth riding the train out here.
