The Sunday Tourist category is for experienced riders cycling at a pace of 20 – 26 km/hr.   These rides are also often frequented by a small group of Sportif pace riders, cycling at speeds of 27/35 km/hr.   Rides will typically offer short (60-90 km) and long (80-120 km) route options. 

Riders are expected to stay in a group and regroup at traffic lights before they hit the open road.  Riders are encouraged to continue their ride with a group of similar paced riders, but once on the open road, everyone is essentially on their own, at their own pace, and self-sufficient, being able to self-navigate (using GPS or cue sheet), fix their own minor mechanical issues (such as flat tires, dropped chains, etc), and carry a cell phone for emergencies. 

The Sunday Tourist rides usually start at TTC stations, predominantly Finch and Vaughan subway stations, but occasional rides might start at other locations such as Kipling or High Park subway stations.  Although we start at TTC stations, the routes take us quickly away from the urban environment to explore the lovely rural countryside outside of the city.    

All rides have a designated lunch spot, located on the ride map/cue sheet.  Routes are planned to allow riders on the short and long routes to end up at the lunch stop at approximately the same time or otherwise overlap their timing at the lunch stop. 

Printed maps and cue sheets are not provided by the ride leader. You need to print the map/cue sheets on your own. We offer maps electronically in advance, via a link to the routes on Ride With GPS. PDFs are available for printing cue sheets. For those with GPS smart phone apps, or GPS bike computers, you will be able to download the route ahead of time. We recommend that you use the Ride With GPS app, as that will give you turn-by-turn directions.
