Due to the ongoing health crisis related to Covid-19
there will be no organised Saturday Cruising Shorts for the 2021 cycling season.
We hope to resume this program in 2022.
Thank you for your understanding!
Take care, safe cycling and stay well!

Saturday Cruising Shorts (SCS) are ideal for cyclists who want to try cycling in TORONTO’S beautiful countryside. more experienced riders will appreciate shorter rides near the city that leave plenty of time for those saturday chores.
Join us to cycle on paved rural roads on the edge of Toronto resuming in 2022. Rides are every other Saturday or at least two Saturdays per month using the short (50 – 70 km) versions of the popular "Sunday Country Cruises". These are tourist class rides and you should be comfortable riding in a small group or occasionally on your own. Speeds are typically 20 to 26 km/hr, and groups of riders will often choose to occasionally regroup. The ride leader will ride with the group, and pay special attention to supporting riders new to the TBN or to country riding.
START TIME FOR ALL SATURDAY CRUISING SHORTS IS 9:00AM.
Please check this web-page regularly to plan your rides. Any cancellations or changes to the schedule will be noted in the "Upcoming Events" section at least 18 hrs. in advance of the ride.
NEED TO KNOW:
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 – if possible, you should register and pay online in advance – follow the link on the event page for each Satruday’s ride.
Staring this year, Saturday Cruising Shorts ride leaders will no longer bring paper maps and cue sheets for riders. Please print and bring your own. You can also download the route to your smartphone or GPS device.
