We are excited to announce our Great Places to Ride Series as we celebrate 2018 Bike Month across the GTHA and Guelph. These weekly features will give you a host of ideas on where to ride in your community. Whether you cycle to work, ride the trails on the weekend, or simply bike to get around town, we hope you’ll discover something new!

For this week's installment, we're featuring the Iroquois Trail located in Whitby in Durham Region.
