GTA cycling forecast has critical details for cyclists this week

You’ll have to be extra vigilant with changing temperatures and cycling attire, with a slight risk of storms on Tuesday and more sustained showers and rumbles on Wednesday before a potent cold front mixes this up by Thursday.

TUESDAY

After our brief return to seasonal temperatures, a warm front surges into the picture on Tuesday, and with it, gusty winds developing out of the southwest at 30-50 km/h.

Temperatures push the upper 20s, with humidex values spilling into the lower 30s. Bring lots of water! Low risk of an isolated storm, mainly looking at north G.T.A. for a slight storm risk.

WEDNESDAY

A cold front is set to cross the area, with lots of cloud cover and a round or two of showers and thunderstorms, and temperatures pushed into the low 20s. Winds shifting to the west-northwest through Wednesday, gusting up to 40 km/h.

THURSDAY

Much cooler flow behind the cold front, with wind speeds of 20-30 km/h out of the north – but there’s a great chance we’ll be looking at clear, sunny skies throughout the day.

FRIDAY

Okay, we’re getting a little further out, but an easterly wind is looking likely here, as a low pressure system tracks south of Lake Erie, bringing, at the very least, cloud cover across the region. I guess we’ll have to watch the shower threat for southwestern G.T.A. but right now, it looks pretty slim. The easterly wind of 30-40 km/h down by the lake will steal the show and keep temperatures down to the low-teens across the region.

RIDE OF THE WEEK

Mountain bikers and gravel riders, this might just be your playground about 45 minute drive outside of Toronto.

  • Head up to the Durham Regional Forest/Glen Major Forest south of Uxbridge and be treated to some gorgeous mountain bike trails and stunning scenery for over 100 mountain bike trails of various difficulties.

  • Public parking is available along Concession Rd. 6 and 7

  • Keep in mind it’s been quite dry for some time, and corners are quite loose and sandy in sections
