The Happy Stragglers: Ride Experience, Community and Gravel at Reggie Ramble 2021

Oct Blog Reggie Ramble

When my partner Natalie and I decided to sign up for the Reggie Ramble, a self-described “gravel grinder” event, we were admittedly both a little nervous. While we are pretty experienced cyclists the sustained output required to participate in a bike “race”, especially on gravel, soon had us questioning our decision.

Minutes Away . . . A World of Difference


Caledon, Ontario is a cyclist’s destination, right next to metropolitan Toronto. Characterized by rolling hills, lush river valleys, the steep Niagara Escarpment, amazing views and farmers’ fields, it is an impressive place to escape the confines of the city and explore by bike.

Relaxing. Family-Friendly

For an easy ride with no climbs, the Caledon Trailway is a wonderful option. The Town of Caledon turned this former rail line into a “rail trail” to encourage active transportation across the town. Running from Palgrave in the north-east to Terra Cotta in the south-west, the trailway is a great way to traverse Caledon and connect with other trails and outdoor destinations.

Cyclists that like a bit more of a challenge can choose from many roads, both gravel and paved, that wind through the Niagara Escarpment.

Caledon is also the backdrop for many annual bike races and events, including the Jack Ride, Tour de Terra Cotta, Le Tour de Headwaters and Bike the Creek.
