Old School Road is a popular recreational cycling route. The bad news it will be closed for the next 12 months. According to the Town of Caledon website Old School Road will be closed from September 6, 2021 to August 31, 2022. The good news is that the reconstruction should include wider paved shoulders and a smoother surface for more pleasant cycling.

BikeBrampton is honoured to present the Cycling Chronicles, a short story by Steve Stoller.
It was always the second question. For years it was always the second question.
The first question, when someone found out I was a cycling enthusiast, always revolved around my bike, and inevitably, how much it cost. I would tell them the list price of the bike, not what I actually paid for it. Once the incredulity was expressed over the price of the bike, the second question would come. Do you race?
This question always brings back memories of my first race, in 1976.
We are looking for clear direction and the nature of this pandemic is such that rules keep changing. Peel Public Health and our municipal governments are the constant for reliable advice for our local community.
COVID-19 effect on Community Cycling Program (CCP)
While we adjust to the “new normal” for cycling in COVID-19 times, we will be facing restrictions such as ‘social distancing’ (or ‘physical distancing’). There are potential silver lining opportunities to make ourselves healthier by safely cycling more and adjusting the infrastructure to make cycling safer.
