Break a sweat, break 100, or just break away: here are some of the more popular ways to enjoy our water (fresh and frozen), land, even mud.
1. Forks Bicycle Shop
What: Gentle hills, peaceful valleys, forested trails and all of it so darn cycleable. When he first came to Erin, Brian Travis was as hooked as you’ll be, so he created his dream bike shop, the friendliest you’ll ever visit.
Who: Brian Travis
2. Mud Hero
What: If mom ever told you to stay out of the mud, revenge awaits: this one-day 6km mud-race will put a year-long smile on your face, with an obstacle course, mudponds, and a rocking after-party.
When: August 29, 2015
Where: Albion Hills Conservation Area, Caledon
What: On the wide banks of the Humber River, a pristine conservation area welcomes winter tobogganists and cross-countriers, summertime campers (full modern facilities), and endless activities.
4. Great Canadian Bonspiel
What: The rink is kilometres long, the teams come from across North America, but it’s anything but competitive: this January curling contest on beautiful (even when frozen) Island Lake is one big party.
5. Fly fishing
What: Relaxing one minute, thrilling the next, Headwaters is fly fishing paradise, and the Glen Haffy Conservation Area stocks Headwaters Trout Ponds with thousands of feisty rainbow trout every year.
