How to escape the Greater Toronto Area for multiday bicycle tours? Difficulty: no car.

My girlfriend and I just bought a tandem touring bike
, and we're both keen to get out to the Ontario countryside for some summer tours. The catch is we have no car.
I know that the GO Train is one option for downtown cyclists trying to escape, but from what I can tell only
the Lakeshore line runs trains that fall outside their rush-hour bicycle ban
. The Lakeshore area is pretty nice
, but I'd rather get to the Barrie area to access Tobermory, Parry Sound, or Algonquin.
Any tricks for escaping the GTA on a low carbon footprint would be much appreciated.
