Britannia Road Loop

Another popular loop that is 33.6km, but has some great challenging hills on Brittania Road. Heading down Brunel, there is great pavement with paved shoulders, and then you turn onto Brittania, which is well maintained and a quiet cottage road. You then turn onto South Portage and head along the final stretch of the Ironman 70.3 Muskoka route.

Huntsville to Sprucedale

This route, with a maximum distance of 112km return, heads away from Huntsville and passes through forests and fields along quiet country roads. Along the way, cyclists will pass through the two small villages of Ilfracombe and Sprucedale, you will truly feel as if you are lost in Muskoka.  Stop and have a swim in Buck Lake at Ilfracombe, or make a trip out of it as many of our local members bike out to Sprucedale to their hotel to have breakfast!  The pavement is in great shape, which will make the trip that much more enjoyable.

Algonquin Park Gate to Gate

Iconic and world renowned Algonquin Park, despite being a Provincial Highway, is a fantastic place to cycle.  The pavement is very good (re-surfaced in 2013) with wide paved shoulders.

There are great opportunities for wildlife viewing, excellent scenery, while the elevation change makes for challenging ride.  Leave early to miss most of the traffic, and get some breath taking sunrise vistas over any number of the lakes that you will pass by while you ride.

If you are parking at the Visitors Centre, you will have to buy a day pass.  However, if you park in Dwight and bike into the park (adds another 20km each way), then you won’t.  There are some businesses along the way that you could probably park at as well.

Limberlost Road (Out and Back)

Limberlost Road is a favorite of locals, and hosts an informal cycling night on Thursday nights (non-sanctioned, non-club related). There are often several cyclists out for the Thursday evening ride.

Limberlost offers rolling terrain with excellent scenery. The pavement is very good, but the pavement past the Olympia Camp at Dotty Lake can have some sand or gravel in patches early in the season. By mid summer, the Camp Lake landing is an excellent place for a swim and short break at the half-way point of the ride. There are several popular Strava segments on this route, including several climbs and the long winding decent from Walker Lake to Highway 60, where the ride finishes.
