The Niagara region is a perfect location for a cycling holiday. There is so much to see from your bike and sites include: Niagara Falls; the beautiful Niagara Parkway; over 70 local wineries; Fort George, The Welland Canal and of course, historic old town Niagara on the Lake.
Cycling paths abound. Many are connected to form the 100 mile Greater Niagara Circle Route (www.regional.niagara.on.ca). These paths start in town just a block from www.thetowncottage.ca. Most of the Greater Circle Route is off road and along quiet paved trails.
From the front doorstep of the Town Cottage, cycle to Niagara Falls (www.infoniagara.com) just 18K from historic Niagara on the Lake and include a helicopter ride over the falls for that ultimate adventure (www.niagarahelicopters.com)
Cycle along the Welland Canal. Part of the Greater Niagara Circle Route follows the Welland Canal Parkway and Trail. Ride alongside mighty ocean going ships as they negotiate the canal and locks traveling over the escarpment between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario .
Travel the complete Greater Niagara Circle Route (140-160K) and the many quiet concession roads around the Niagara Peninsula. All roads and bike paths are suitable for road or hybrid bikes and your ride can start right from the Town Cottage (www.thetowncottage.ca).
Mountain bike trails include the heritage trail that starts in Niagara on the Lake 13k to Queenston.
Bring your bikes or rent from Zoom (www.zoomleisure.com). Explore the historic sites of Old Town Niagara on the Lake.
