Ontario Bike Laws:
Bikes must have a warning device like a bell or horn. When biking close to sunrise or sunset or in the dark, bikes must be outfitted with both headlight and red tail light and have reflectors. Helmets are mandatory for everyone under 18. Keep to the right on paths or trails.
What kind of bikes are there? Hybrid bikes make an all-purpose adventure bike being a cross between an road-bike and a mountain bike. They have larger wheels and narrower tires than mountain bikes. Touring bikes are a more robust type of bike than standard road bikes and can be used on bike trails as well.
To go biking on trails you should at least have a water bottle to stay hydrated.
