Updated for the 2013 riding season is Ontario Tourism’s Top Ten Motorcycle Routes in Ontario. This year's list has been totally revamped based on all the new roads we've explored in 2012 as part of the Ultimate Northern Ontario Road Trip. We’ve brought you a round-up of the most scenic, twisty and fun routes in the province. Check out the video for an idea of the incredible diversity of riding experiences in the province, or just skip down to the list!
Back for a second year is Highway 11 from Nipigon to Cochrane (or vice versa.) First off: know that this is nearly as far north as you can go on paved roads. Add in the stunning cliff-enclosed 160km (100 miles) of two-lane blacktop between Nipigon and Geraldton, which include the world-beating Pijitiwabik Pallisades, and you’ve got the makings of an epic ride.
Easily the shortest route on the list, this one makes it mainly by virtue of its popularity and proximity to the Big Smoke (AKA Toronto). Best suited for a day trip, the road includes some great twist and turns, over hill and dale, and one thrilling hairpin. Riders in the know will take Mississauga Road north for an extra thrill.
