What we're about
Freedom Fridays are the newest addition to the TBN stable of weekly rides, a program of out-of-town summer adventures that start early to beat the heat. It will be a short season -- from early June until the end of August -- but we may be able to extend the season if the weather stays favourable and if there's enough demand. Our start points are usually within an hour's drive from central Toronto, and we'll start at 830am on Fridays -- early enough that you can beat most of the rush hour traffic, and early enough that you can get home before the rush hour traffic builds up again.
These are Tourist class rides -- you should be comfortable riding alone or in a small group -- but Urban Roller riders might also enjoy the chance of a more rural ride. Please note that some of these rides will be on paved multi-use trails -- be ready to moderate your speed. We will offer a single route each week, with a distance between 60km and 80km.

Please note ride leaders will not bring maps and cue sheets to the Freedom Friday rides. Please print and bring your own, or ask a friend to print them for you. Or you can download the route to your smartphone or your GPS device.
You must wear a helmet to join any TBN ride, and you must be ready to show your TBN membership card to the ride leader or to sign a waiver and pay a $5 non-member fee.
