Trail bike riding in Ontario seems to be a closely guarded secret even though our province has more trails available to off-road motorcycles (ORM) than some European countries and most US states. A German rider recently visited my house and told me there are no public motorcycle trails in Germany – at all. New Jersey has just recently approved its first state ORM trail; Vermont and New York don’t really have anything and Quebecers tell me they have nothing that comes close to Ontario’s trails.
When I re-entered the sport about 15 years ago I was fortunate and found a club that welcomes amateur riders; I was quickly re-introduced to the sport through the camaraderie of my local club. Riding motorcycles on trails has forever changed my weekends and absolutely improved my quality of life and happiness.
