Our featured rider – Alex Crookes – lives in this area, and while this time of year may not be the best time to explore Ontario, that doesn’t mean you can’t plan ahead.

We found this site that has a list of the top 10 routes in Ontario. Compiled by Mark Jacobs, an avid rider and outdoor enthusiast, the list covers routes that get you near water, mix off- and on-road riding, and take you through some of the area’s best summer and fall scenery. And it’s a good mix of twisties and sweepers. Worth a look…and a possible trip north.

Here’s a taste of one of the more interesting routes that takes you around major parts of Lake Superior.
