From the Bike Train website:
We are excited to announce a new pilot project that introduces twice daily Bike Train service between Montreal and Toronto offering bike racks onboard. The pilot will run from August 24 to October 8 allowing cyclists to take the train with their bikes - no box or disassembly required!
With a push to promote cycle tourism in North Bay, you can now take the Bike Train there with a pilot starting August 7-10. It could be that the area is actually quite nice for some cycle touring, I don't know. The best person to ask is Justin Lafontaine who helped get the original Bike Train running to Niagara Falls (with over 1000 passengers so far). The North Bay-bound train will start in Toronto and take the Ontario Northland's Northlander rail service, winding through the scenic back country of Muskoka and the Algonquin Highlands.
We just found out some good news about the Bike Train. Read on and have a great Thanksgiving! Get in some cycling while the weather is good:
Over the last two weeks I have made a couple of trips to the Niagara Region taking photos for the fine folks at biketrain.ca
So, I made this little video to remind myself how lovely the Niagara Region is any time, with spring especially so. The First trip for the Bike Train this year will be June 27.
Could not be soon enough, I'd say.
