The printed and online maps presented have been developed to assist experienced cyclists in planning trips. The cycling routes are primarily on-road and, in most cases, do not contain special treatment for cyclists, such as bike lanes or wayfinding signage.
Cyclists must obey Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act and always use appropriate caution.
The routes are intended for experienced cyclists. Experienced cyclists are those who road cycle daily/regularly and have high cycling skill level on roads and/or those who have completed the CAN-BIKE level 2 course, or an equivalent training course. These maps and Cycling Routes are not intended for use by children or novice cyclists.
When planning a route, each cyclist should evaluate the Cycling Route based on:
(1) cyclist’s level of experience and ability;
(2) cyclist’s comfort level when cycling in close proximity to motorized vehicles;
(3) the weather conditions and time of day;
(4) the posted speed limit; and
(5) road obstacles, whether temporary or permanent, such as construction, potholes, changes in grade, or road closures.
The designation of an area on the map as a Cycling Route, bicycle lane, route or pathway does not guarantee any minimum width, facility surface quality, or traffic condition.
