Excellent bike route takes you through some of the most beautiful parts of Niagara on paved bike paths. Recommendation would be not to try it on 35+C days as some parts have minimal shade. Also, note that there are not many locations to fill water...More

This is a fantastic cycling path in Niagara. It essentially goes from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario along both sides of the Welland Canal. Path is decently wide, paved, and most cyclists on the path seem to use proper cycling etiquette. Many places to stop...More

Lots to see and do on the route --- it will be even better as the soft and stone fruits come to ripen and the fruit stands are out all over the place,

Free cycling trail that encompasses the entire Niagara Peninsula. The Port Colborne leg goes by the Welland Canal. One of the best trails in Ontario and mostly asphalt.

The address for this is a bit deceptive. The route travels through the whole Niagara Region and has many parking spots to leave your vehicle why you adventure out. This path has minimal interaction with vehicles and usually you are along waterways, through woods or...More
