What we're about

Freedom Fridays offer out-of-town rides that usually start early to beat the heat. Our start points are within an hour's drive from central Toronto, and we usually start at 830am. That's early enough that you can beat most of the rush hour traffic, and then get home before the rush hour traffic builds up again.

Rides at the start and the end of the season start at 10am.

These are mostly Tourist class rides. You should be comfortable riding alone or in a small group. But we're a friendly group, and this year we're experimenting with a small number of no-drop rides, for cyclists who prefer a more leisurely pace. See the website for more details. We offer between one and three routes each week, with most distances between 60km and 80km.

Please note ride leaders will not bring maps and cue sheets to the Freedom Friday rides. Please print and bring your own, or ask a friend to print them for you. We recommend that you download the RideWithGPS route to your smartphone or your GPS device.


You must wear a helmet to join any TBN ride, and you must register for each event separately. If you are not a member, please choose the "Guest Membership" registration option for any ride. If you enjoy the TBN experience, your $10 Guest fee can be applied towards your TBN membership fee.
