Situated in Southwestern Ontario, the BT 700 is a 798 km loop (used to be 700) in southwestern Ontario designed for any rider who revels in unpaved backcountry roads, testy climbs and trails through thick forests. The route as a whole is designed to be an adventure cycling route, mainly using unsurfaced riding surfaces, that bundles southern Ontario’s greatest hits into one neat package. Are you ready to join the butter tart fellowship?
Once a year, a common “grand depart” will occur from the historic village of St. Jacobs, Ontario which will bring together the bikepacking community. Can't make the event or fancy more alone time? Not a problem. The BT 700 is an open-sourced route and can be tackled at anytime of the year.
For more bikepacking adventures in Ontario check out the BT XL, GNR, Hasty Highlander, Farmers Folly, NWM and Log Drivers Waltz routes. All of which and more routes can also be found on bikepackingontario.com. Routes have also been developed in Costa Rica and Colombia.
