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.
