The last few weeks in the Collingwood has proven to be one of the best autumns on record. The foliage has been incredible, the mix of reds, oranges and yellows is enough to slow your cadence down forcing you to take in all the colours. On October 4th, Ontario Parks noted that the colour change was at 60% and the leaf fall was 20%.
Some of the best routes to ride this time of year include ascending the Pretty River Valley, descending into Maple valley and twisting along Grey Road 13 through the Beaver River Valley toward Kimberley. The Thanksgiving weekend looks to be some of the best riding of the fall, just remember your bennie, sleeves and legs, temperatures are going to be in the low teens. Get out and take it all in before the snow arrives.
