Arrive in Niagara-on-the-Lake, one of the prettiest towns in Canada. Take a stroll along shady streets lined by lovely 19th-century houses, many of them proudly displaying heritage plaques. Then explore the shops and treat yourself to dinner in one of the town’s excellent restaurants. This might be the perfect time to take in a play at the Shaw Festival.
Learn about life in 1812 at Fort George, then head off through the vineyards to the Welland Canal. Soon you’re rolling over hills, lush and green in the summer and blazing red in the fall. Take some time to walk in Short Hills Provincial Park, then glide down the Escarpment. Ahead of you is the blue vastness of Lake Ontario and, on a clear day, you can see the CN Tower in Toronto. Arrive at the charming village of Jordan, where you’ll spend two nights.
Ride Distance: 48 km, elevation gain 225 m.*
Start with a short climb up the Escarpment, wander in to Ball’s Falls, then ride through the vineyards. Visit some of the province’s best wineries and enjoy a bit of wine tasting. Be sure to treat yourself to a spectacular lunch at one of the winery restaurants. Follow tiny roads that meander along Lake Ontario and through apple and peach orchards, then return to Jordan.
Ride Distance: 37 km, elevation gain 252 m.*
Head for Port Dalhousie, on the shore of Lake Ontario. Browse through the shops and stroll along the harbour. Follow the waterfront trail, then pedal along the Welland Canal bike path. At Lock 3 you can climb up to a viewing stand and almost touch the huge ships that pass by. Ride all the way to Thorold to the Twinned Flight Locks where ships climb up and down the Niagara Escarpment. Then it’s back to wine country, as you approach Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Ride Distance: 45 km, elevation gain 107 m.*
