Durham Cycle Tours Map
Durham trails and on-road cycling routes will lead you through a variety of breathtaking landscapes — from the beautiful scenery of Lake Ontario’s Waterfront Trail to the rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine. We recommend the Uxbridge Loop that takes you right through the downtown core and on the doorstep of the festival venues.
After you’ve had a chance to check out the incredible lineup of artists the festival is serving up this weekend, take a moment to check out the many sites around Uxbridge by bike including the Mountain Bike Trails, The Optimist Pump Park, and the Uxbridge Rotary Skate Park.
Need a rental? We’ve got you covered with Boyd’s Sports conveniently located downtown, and ready to support with any additional gear or maintenance.
And if you are feeling generous after being treated to copious amount of incredible music all weekend long, consider donating a gently used adult Mountain Bike, to our friends at Africycle who are taking donations for their summer shipment of bikes to Malawi.

By Go Train
Finding your way to the festival is easy by public transit! You can take the Go Train from Union Station to Pickering, Whitby, or Stouffville GO locations for pick up and transport via our free shuttle service, or take a direct Go Bus from Union Station to the Albert St. Railway in Uxbridge. We’ve compiled a few Go Train Schedules here for you to plan your route.
Get a ride with someone in their car using Poparide! When you carpool on Poparide, you increase the number of people per car which reduces the carbon footprint of each person sharing the ride. As thousands of people share rides on Poparide, we greatly reduce our collective impact on the environment.
Find a carpool lot to make it easy to meet up with friends!
