Preparation for Biking Around Southern Ontario

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

I’ve always been aware that there are a lot of things to do in Ontario and I have also wanted to ride my bicycle across the country but I am not ready for that kind of effort or time commitment, so I decided to spend a few weeks riding around southern Ontario.

I have a generic plan to ride to Lake Erie and continue along the north shore to the Leamington area before taking the ferry to Pelee Island.

From Pelee Island, I plan to ride to Sarnia, Stratford, Kitchener and then back home again, stopping whenever I am tired or I want to do something specific.

I’m not sure how long this trip will take.  It all depends on the number and length of each stop.   I want to see and experience as much as I can along the way.

I plan on staying at campsites most of the time and I have no reservations, so my plans could change significantly, especially if it rains.   All I know for sure is that tomorrow morning I’m riding to Port Colborne and then I plan to start riding along the north shore of Lake Erie.
