Durham Region has a number excellent on-road regional and cross-regional trail systems and routes. Road cyclists are a common site along the scenic and quiet country roads, some with more challenging hills and others flatter following agricultural farmland in and out of pretty hamlets. Butter tart stops, country corner stores, bistro dinning and city eateries are some of the tastes available.

Additional cycling destinations with extensive off-road bicycle trails are attracting a variety of cyclists, including mountain bike enthusiasts.

The southern area of the region is easily accessible with frequent GO trains to Oshawa and bus services beyond. There are various information resources and published maps that cyclists can use to assist with route planning in the region and its Greenbelt areas.
