Fall is well under way. Leaves are on the ground, nights are longer, and we already got our first snowfall. This time of year the conditions change often. It’s important to be prepared and stay safe. Here are our shoulder season riding tips.

We’re working to provide everything you need to keep riding this winter. Read our winter riding tips, try it out at our annual family-friendly Coldest Day of the Year Ride (date to be announced January 2019), post a selfie showing us how you stay warm while riding (tag us @CycleToronto), and challenge yourself to ride on Winter Bike to Work Day!
While fall colours make Toronto a beautiful place to be outdoors this time of year, falling leaves can create slippery conditions for city cyclists. Turning, braking, and accelerating can become more challenging maneuvers that were previously done with ease, while other hazards can become hidden under damp orange foliage.
