This is the time of year when I park the road bike and get in some dirt mileage.
This was a long weekend (Happy Thanksgiving, Canadians!) so I managed to find time between runs to get in a nice ride.
I ride a Gary Fisher Utopia... it's a hybrid, not a true mountain bike, but it gets the job done on the trails around my place. I biked up from my house on a series of gravel and paved roads to Walker's Woods and Glen Major, and right next to it the awesome Durham Forest, a large forested reserve north east of Toronto.
It was fantastic... the trees have turned red, gold, orange, and yellow... some fantastic views. The leaves are just starting to fall, so in a few weeks you'll get that really cool forest floor cover. There's nothing more thrilling than pounding through the forest leaves!
If you live in the Toronto area, drive up and check it out. Here is a link to where it is on Google Maps.
Next weekend: Toronto Marathon!
