The 700 stands for the approximate distance, but what’s with the BT? Well, that is a tribute to the butter tart – the quintessentially Canadian sweet treat that has what it takes to fuel any BT 700 participant. There is great debate about which bakery or general store serves up the best butter tart or what should or should not be included (pecans, yes or no? Maybe raisins?). In fact, two Ontario townships have had a spat over who rightly owns “the butter tart trail”. See, serious stuff. Try a few along route and decide for yourself.
