GET STARTED WITH THESE ITINERARIES
Cycling Ontario’s country roads should be on every peddlers bucket list. We love the rolling hills of Grey County, where the vast swaths of forest and farmland is dotted with apple orchards, equally as much as the rugged landscapes and islands of Northern Ontario or serene waterfront trails stretching from Toronto to Niagara Falls.
There’s something about bicycles and breweries that just makes sense. Those looking to peddle for their pints should definitely add Block Three Brewing in Waterloo, Manitoulin Brewing Company on Manitoulin Island, Second Wedge Brewery in Uxbridge, Thornbury Village Ciderhouse & Brewery in Thornbury and Upper Thames Brewing Company in Woodstock to their itineraries.
