    • Monarch Tavern, 12 Clinton Street, Toronto

    On Saturday, July 27, 2019, we will be holding our annual meeting to plan the 2019 Fall City Walk schedule, as well producing ideas for the 2020 Winter Walks.

    Starting October 13, 2019, TBN will again be running a full program of City Walks. As we have done in the last few years, we will run 10 or 11 of our regular, pre-planned Sunday Fall City Walks, which will take us to near the end of December, and then follow it in January with a dozen or so of our informal Sunday Winter Walks, until the weather is nice enough to start biking again around the end of March.

    If you would like to contribute some ideas, perhaps lead a walk or two, get together with some of your walking buddies, are curious about the City Walk program, or perhaps would just like to have a beverage or two, please join us on Saturday, July 27, 2019 at 2:00 PM at the Monarch Tavern for a planning meeting. We will be upstairs on the 2nd floor.

    The Monarch Tavern is located at 12 Clinton Street, one block south of College St., on the corner of Clinton and Henderson St. To get there you can:

    • take the subway to Bathurst station and ride the streetcar south to College, then walk west to Clinton, and south to Henderson,
    • or take the 506 streetcar along College to Clinton, and walk south to Henderson,
    • or take the 505 streetcar along Dundas to Grace Street, walk north to Mansfield Ave, east to Clinton, and then north to Henderson

    Note that there is currently a scheduled subway closure on Line 1 (Yonge Line) for this date, between Sheppard-Yonge and St Clair stations, in case that affects your travel time. However, before heading out, please check the TTC Scheduled Subway Closures site at https://www.ttc.ca/Service_Advisories/Subway_closures/index.jsp to see if this has changed. Also, check for other TTC bus or streetcar diversions at https://www.ttc.ca/Service_Advisories/Route_diversions/index.jsp.

    If you not able to make it but are interested in having some input, please email me at citywalks@tbn.ca. If you are interested in leading a walk, please let me know what dates you would be interested in and which walks you would be interested in leading. Note that you must be a TBN member to lead a walk.

    If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at citywalks@tbn.ca.

      New this Year: Guest riders (non-members) will need to register and pay the $5 fee online before the ride. Just follow this link to the registration page. Please bring the confirmation email to the start to show to the leader, either in printed form or on your phone.


      Note:  If you are driving to the start you will need to use the the Kipling Subway South parking lot. The lot is accessed from Munster Ave, off Kipling Ave. south of Dundas St. 


      Travel through Mississauga and get rewarded with a beautiful rest spot in Eldorado Park.


      You will need to bring your own lunch on this ride as opportunities to pick something up on the way are poor, and there is no food for sale at the park.


      The route was revised this year to eliminate the dreary section along McLaughlin and to see a bit of what Meadowvale used to look like before it was swallowed by the suburbs that took its name but none of its charm.


      Be sure to print a copy of the new cue sheet, and have a look at the RwGPS map to familiarise yourself with the route.


      This ride is considered to be at the upper end of the Urban Roller category. It is not recommended for Leisure Wheelers.


      Meet for a 10 am departure from the Tim Hortons at the northwest corner of Dundas St West and Aukland Road. This is very close to the Kipling TTC station. The parking lot that we used to use as a start point is now a construction site.



      Please print a copy of the cue sheet provided from the link listed below. Please note that the Ride with GPS cue sheet directions have not been edited and may not be accurate, but the linked cue sheet has been checked and prepared especially for Urban Rollers.

      Caution note: there is a 1.6 km busy stretch on County Rd 2 heading north starting at km 8.6. It's largely downhill and there is an extra lane or good paved shoulder for the first half of the distance. However, the paving then becomes quite rough. Thus, reduce your speed and keep your distance from the cyclist in front along this stretch. As always, emphasize your presence with a good rear flashing red light.

      A 62 or 88 km ride from the village of Ashburn through the Oak Ridges Moraine to lunch at either the Nestleton Country Store in Nestleton or the Wolf Run Golf Club just after Janetville.

      Meet for a 9 am departure at Ashburn Park on the west side of Ashburn Road, 200 m north of the main intersection.

      Come for a good Advanced Urban Roller style workout on the penultimate weekend of summer. This is a longer version of the popular Maple ride that goes an additional 30 km out into the countryside and visits charming Kleinburg. We'll stop briefly in Kleinburg for coffee/snacks or to see the sights, then hop back on the bikes to get to lunch at Tim Hortons/Wendys.


      Encounter the biggest hills of the Urban Roller season to test the muscles you've been working on all summer. To avoid the heavy construction at Centre St and Hwy 7 there will be a short (1.5 km) section of hard packed gravel.

      Our fall outing to Hornell will from Tuesday 10 to Thursday September 12. Hornell is in the northern Allegheny Highlands (click here for Wikipedia article). The Highlands are part of the vast Appalachian Mountain Range of the Eastern United States and Canada. In less technological times they posed a significant barrier to land travel in eastern North America.  In our era, they are a hidden cycling gem - great scenery, terrific roads and, best of all, lots of challenging hills. 

      Accommodation We will be staying in the Econo Lodge (website) in North Hornell which is a short distance south west of the Finger Lakes. Please call the hotel directly at 607-324-0800 to make your reservation. Tell them that you are part of the Wednesday Wheelies group and ask them to put you in the "New Building". It's a separate structure of 18 large rooms, all of which are non-smoking. If you run into any confusion trying to make your booking, we suggest you call back when Eric is on duty. There are also about 50 additional rooms in the other buildings. You can expect to pay around $60 per night, including breakfast. Don't try and use one of the many of the online booking options as you may actually pay more, and you probably won't be able to ask to be put in the New Building. We suggest you drive down on the Monday evening and stay through until the Thursday morning. However, if you want to come for either a shorter or longer stay, no problem. 

      The Scenery As mentioned above, the region is very hilly, and so not for the faint of heart (sorry). You may wish to consider using a granny gear bike. There are some really long beautiful remote stretches on all of the routes. It will be impossible to avoid enjoying the scenery, even when you are climbing! You may even decide that the scenery is spectacular. Be sure to bring along some sort of camera device.


      The Rides We've plotted hilly rides for the first two days. On the third day, there will two around a lake options - one flat and the other hilly. Click here to see RWGPS plots of the rides (click on the "Show all on map" button in order to see the big picture). The RWGPS link includes some other options for anyone choosing to stay longer than three days. As the event approaches, we will refine parking lot information, refreshment stops and other details, and some nits will be fixed. Start times for the rides will tentatively be 9:30. There will be a short drive to the start locations on the first two days, and a slightly longer drive to the start location for the rides around the lake on the third day. 

      The Highlander Perhaps the routes we have plotted won't be enough for you. For the truly inclined at heart, click here to read about the Highlander. It's a charity ride of 163 km with more than 2600 metres of climbing! It takes place on the weekend following our event. There will likely be a number of our cycling friends from the Niagara Freewheelers participating. It's a terrific event definitely worth considering. 



      After Ride Socializing and Dinner Each day after the ride, we will meet in the parking lot outside our rooms for some after ride socializing and rehydrating. We will generally head off as a group around 6 pm for dinner at one of the local restaurants. 

      Flexibility Since we all be staying in the same hotel and will likely be a fairly small group, we will have the flexibility to change details to suit the circumstances (e.g., start times or restaurant details).

      Weather and Cancelling Your Hotel Reservation Click here to check out the weather forecast for Hornell (this page also includes also includes links to 14 day and 7 day forecasts). If the weather looks like it will be really lousy, you will be able to cancel your hotel reservation without penalty up to 11 am on the day before your scheduled arrival. If we have one bad day of weather, Corning is a very touristy town about an hour away that's worth a visit. Of particular interest is the Corning Glass Museum (website) where you can learn all about glass making and how Corning developed Pyrex, Corelle, fiber optic cable, gorilla glass and other game changing technical glass products. Another bad weather day option would be a visit to Ithaca and Cornell University.


      Driving For driving directions, click here. Google Maps estimates the driving time to be 3.5 hours in good conditions. Of course, there is the border and possible traffic delays. Hence, we recommend that you drive down on the Monday evening. In order to avoid roaming charges on your phone, you may wish to download the Google Maps sections for the area before leaving home. This will allow you to put your phone in airplane mode after crossing the the border. In addition to using Google Maps to get to the hotel, you will also find it useful for finding parking lots, restaurants, etc.

      Registration If you think you are likely to join us, please click on the registration button on the left and register as soon as possible. If you change your mind at any point, not an issue. However, it will be very helpful to us if you register so that we have a reasonable sense of our likely numbers.

      Suggestions or Questions If you have any suggestions for changes or refinements to the proposed program, we will be very happy to hear them. Also, if you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact us.
