BT 700 Bikepacking

Born out of a curiosity to explore Southwester Ontario’s lesser known nooks and crannies, the BT 700 (now about 790 km, but who’s counting) is a grand, multi-day jaunt that makes use of a combination of gravel roads, rail trail, bounding two-track, forest singletrack, rugged unserviced roads and just a whisper of tarmac to take riders through varied landscapes and the rugged beauty of this chunk of Ontario. It should be consider a mixed surface, all-terrain route and more mountain bike oriented than a pure gravel ride. Along the way, you’ll come into contact with inviting rivers, widescreen vistas, lush green pastures, charming communities and plunging waterfalls. A somewhat demanding route full of two-wheel challenges for cyclists of all abilities and one that benefits old-fashioned ‘rough stuff’ attitudes. It is not designed to be the easiest, most direct or fastest route, but one that inspires a sense of adventure. As always, take a breather, and a photo opportunity. A bikepacker’s toil is invariably worth the effort. Of course, butter tarts are the terrior of the route. Covering the route under your own steam will surely work up an appetite for routes namesake treat.
