Today I’m starting my 3,500km Ontario Epic Bikepacking Route (ONXL) for fun and to raise funds for an amazing charity https://bikeswithoutborders.org/. To help them empower marginalized people by providing them with a free refurbished bicycle please make a charitable donation at https://www.canadahelps.org/en/pages/bikepack-ontario-epic-4000km-fundraising-ride-for-/.
I created this ONXL route (https://ridewithgps.com/collections/17901) of about 3,500km from some of the routes in Matthew Kadey’s collection “ONXL: An Ontario Bikepack Collective” (https://ridewithgps.com/collections/17214).
My planned route is: Toronto north to Caledon East, BT700 west to St Jacobs, Grand Nith Ramble (GNR) south to Hamilton and west to Brantford, around the Great Southwest Loop (GS), GNR to BT700, BT700 clockwise to Palgrave, Oak Ridges Moraine Trail (ORMT) east to Campbellford, Trans Canada Trail (TCT) to Sharbot Lake, Log Drivers Waltz (LDW) clockwise, North of Seven (NOS) west from Sharbot Lake to Campbellford. Hasty Highlander (HH) west to Lindsay, some trails south and west to Toronto.
