Cycling trails in Toronto offer sanctuary from both vehicular traffic and the general hustle and bustle of city life. We are a city blessed with ravines, and that is a very good thing if you like to ride your bike off road. While Toronto is also endowed with a healthy number of bike paths
, the idea here is to focus in on unpaved places to ride your bike, where you can sometimes fool yourself that you've left the city altogether. The level of difficulty of these trails varies widely, so you need not own a full suspension mountain bike to enjoy all of the off-road opportunities around town. And, unsurprisingly, should you wish to drive a short distance outside the city, there's a ton of trail systems to choose from.
