The 'century' is a legendary ride among cyclists originating in the late 1800's. The more modern "metric century" in York Region offers a memorable route easily accessed from anywhere in the GTA. Starting in Newmarket, this smoothly paved route takes you to Lake Simcoe and provides plenty of stops to re-charge. Consider lunch or an overnight at the luxurious Bria's Resort and Spa. You will surely enjoy the historic villages along the way. Plan to linger along the Simcoe shoreline and enjoy the spectacular views from Lake Drive.
