Cyclists can explore towns and cities en route and enjoy a full range of services catering to visitors year round.
The opening of the Lake Erie Waterfront Trail and Erie Coastal Stewardship Eco Trail in 2013 links the region to the existing Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail. The route follows the shoreline passing many beach and naturalized areas, local attractions, and well placed towns enroute.
An off road trail north from Port Dover, makes for a pleasant ride and is also an easy way to connect to Brantford and VIA Rail Bike Train options. Forest trails also offer mountain bikers a reason to journey to the region.
