What we're about

Freedom Fridays are one of the newest additions to the TBN stable of weekly rides, a program of out-of-town summer adventures that start early to beat the heat. We have a short season, from early June until the end of September, but we usually extend the season if the weather stays favourable and if there's enough demand. Our start points are within an hour's drive from central Toronto, and we'll start at 830am on Fridays. 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.

These are Tourist class rides. You should be comfortable riding alone or in a small group. But we're a friendly group, and we tend to stay together a little more than some of the faster weekend or midweek tourist riders. Urban Roller riders might also enjoy the chance of a more rural ride: come along and check us out. 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.
