The 2013 Muskoka Motorcycle Rally

Ontario riders have known the score for years, Muskoka is the go-to place for great summertime vacations. With an abundance of lakes, beautiful scenery and many a winding road, the area has been luring riders from further and further afield. National Geographic recently ranked Muskoka as the number one summer trip so the cat is out of the bag. The growing interest in the area has culminated into an event that celebrates the best of motorcycling and Muskoka.

Word to the wise: On a busy weekend the 400 and 11 Highways can be a trap worth avoiding at all costs. Fortunately, there are a lot of great side roads in and around this area known as Explorers' Edge. The Georgian Bay Coastal Route offers some convenient alternatives but just as satisfying can be discovering your own way. Let us know if you find an exceptional one you want to share with other riders.

Have a great weekend!
