Niagara is made for superior cycling for both beginners and pros alike. With endless picture-perfect moments and sights to see, it’s the best way to slow down, savour and always take the scenic route. Ride the vines from winery to winery or get lost in nature along the dazzling Niagara Parkway. Drive along the shoreline or tackling tough hills, but we can’t guarantee you won’t be tempted to stop to take in the sheer beauty that makes us one of Ontario’s premier cycling destinations.
The Waterfront Trail in Niagara-on-the-Lake is well-known as one of the top 10 bike trips to make you fall in love with Canada (and with good reason!). So if you’re going to take any bike trip, why wouldn’t it be in Niagara? This seemingly endless trail offers views of the shores of Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, Lake St. Clair and the Niagara, Detroit and St. Lawrence Rivers. Or get up close and personal with the Horseshoe Falls in a whole new way by taking a once-in-a-lifetime ride on the Niagara River Recreational Trail right beside the famous Falls, the Niagara River, Fort Erie and Fort George.
For those wanting to take it all in, you can sip and savour as your ride, with intimate wine and craft beer tours available across the region, making stops at some of Niagara’s top-rated, breathtakingly beautiful vineyards–showing you that we’re not just known for solid cycling, but our world-class wines too.
