Looks interesting. I’ve recently (ie. today) become interested in this idea of overnight rides. So I decided to do one this coming Friday.
I find it hard to plan time for the longer rides in between other ‘bigger’ travel plans, but a single day or two is much easier.
Friday I’ll take the GO train in the afternoon to Hamilton, ride to Turkey Point. I’ll arrive around 8 or 9, camp, and in the morning, either do a loop of the trails and then ride back, or just skip the trails depending how I’m feeling, and ride back to the train (via a different route). A bit over 100km each way.
Should be a good / quick way to test out some gear.
For the BT700, I don’t think I’ll be able to do it on the official dates but may try it earlier in the season.

Looks like a good route. I’ve ridden the Hamilton/Branford rail trail section and enjoyed it.
Message me if you’re free on the 6th-7th and would like to come along on our trip. Trying to fit as much singletrack as possible into it.May 14, 2019 at 11:00 am #821117
I love overnighters for all the reasons mentioned above. These both sounds fun, i’ll check dates.
Might have just the bike for this. Check the front page 🙂May 17, 2019 at 7:37 pm #821127
You know, as soon as I saw your Instagram post with the new bike I thought “I bet Marc will do this on the Stiggy!”
I adjusted the outbound route so out of about 120 km, we’ve got 45 km of Singletrack, 25 km of rail trail, and 50 km of a mix of gravel and paved roads. Mostly gravel.May 23, 2019 at 10:47 am #821143
@nyby, might be interested in joining for another bikepack overnighter, would prob make own way back on day 2 in the name of time and family management just like last year, but as i havent done 100k in a couple years day one should be plenty of challenge for me. I’m putting it in the calendar and hope to have it locked in solidly within next week, look fwd to hearing more!May 23, 2019 at 12:11 pm #821144
