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. We have a short season, from early June until the end of August, but we usually extend the season if the weather stays favourable and if there's enough demand. Our start points are within an hour's drive from central Toronto, and we'll start at 830am on Fridays. That's early enough that you can beat most of the rush hour traffic, and then 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 we're a friendly group, and we tend to stay together a little more than some of the faster weekend or midweek tourist riders. Urban Roller riders might also enjoy the chance of a more rural ride: come along and check us out. We offer between one and three routes each week, with most distances 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. You can also 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. If you are not a member, you will be asked to sign a waiver and pay a $5 non-member fee.
