Featured Cycling in Ontario
Take in the Beauty of Frontenac County
Enjoy cycling on a variety of trails or country roads as they meander past breathtaking vistas, pristine freshwater lakes, vast tracts of lush green forests and spectacular rock formations. Explore the Rideau lakes and historic canals, Land O' Lakes, picturesque villages and as many as 1000 Islands. Cycle the Arch, the UNESCO recognized Frontenac Arch Biosphere.
Parts of the Frontenac area also lie in The Great Waterway/South Eastern Ontario area. For more regional maps, cycling info and Ontario By Bike listings, also visit The Great Waterway page.
Exploring the Niagara Region
Niagara is becoming known for cycling almost as much for wine. An incredible selection of bicycle routes and trails make this a popular destination for cyclists. Whether joining a tour or striking it on your own, there are short or multi-day trips to suit all levels. Meander between wineries through farmland, travel along rivers and lakes, or take advantage of acres devoted to mountain biking featuring the Escarpment. Plans for additional bike ways will help ensure that cyclists keep enjoying all Niagara has to offer. There is ample infrastructure to support cyclists, including signed routes, maps, and smartphone apps.
The city of Ottawa has a vibrant cycling culture and now boasts over 600 km of bike lanes and paved shoulders, recreational and multi-use paths, as well as over 10,000 bike parking spaces and over 2,100 ring and post racks. In 2010, a pilot project was conducted to develop segregated bike lanes along Laurier Avenue in downtown Ottawa, the first of its kind in Ontario and is now a permanent feature of the city's streetscape.
While visiting Ottawa, cyclists shouldn't miss the opportunity to explore the Capital Pathway Network, which includes more than 300 km of multi-use, off-road paths connecting world-class museums, art galleries, and other attractions. The Capital Pathway Network is also known for its two showcase pathway systems; the Ottawa River Pathway, as well as the Rideau Canal Western and Eastern Pathways, which hug the Rideau River and the Rideau Canal, Ontario's only UNESCO World Heritage Site. From Victoria Day weekend to Labour Day weekend, cyclists can enjoy Sunday Bikedays, where over 50 kilometres of parkways in Ottawa and Gatineau Park are reserved for cyclists, in-line skaters, runners and walkers.
Truly a bicycle-friendly destination, in 2013, Ottawa was the first city in the province of Ontario to receive the gold-level "Bicycle Friendly Community Award" presented by Share the Road Cycling Coalition. There is no better time to visit the nation's capital by bike!
