Featured Cycling in Ontario
Southwest Ontario - Elgin, Lambton, London, Middlesex & Oxford
With relatively flat agricultural land, picturesque lakefronts and meandering rivers, as well as quaint country towns, Southwest Ontario offers cyclists experiences of all kinds.
County of Brant
The County of Brant has cycling experiences that attract all kinds of cyclists. Much of the region's rail heritage has been converted into an extensive trail network that is also part of the Trans Canada Trail. Mapped routes along quieter rural roads draw experienced riders out across the County and through scenic natural landscapes and farmlands; connecting inviting towns and villages along the way.
Windsor Essex Pelee Island
Essex County sits on the edge of the Great Lakes in the southern-most region of Canada. Its warm summer temperatures and mostly flat farmland make it an attractive destination for cyclists.
Surrounded on three sides by water, the warm humid weather is perfect for growing grapes and Essex County has become one of the premier wine regions in Canada. Pelee Island is a popular tourist destination and its quiet back-country roads and excellent sightseeing are perfect for the recreational cyclist. Windsor was recognised in 2011 as a 'Bicycle Friendly Community'.
With its proximity to Detroit and the United States, the area has always been a busy transportation corridor. Many of the original rail lines have been abandoned and are slowly being turned into multi-use recreation trails. One of these is the scenic 48km Chrysler Canada Greenway. Also launched summer 2013, the new Lake Erie Waterfront Trail will enable cyclists to follow the shorelines of Lake St Clair, the Detroit River and Lake Erie, connecting to a 1400km cross-provincial trail.
