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.

Excited for your Ontario adventure! If you shaved your beard you would have less wind resistance 😁
Enjoy the journey…
Having just returned from a week of camping and sightseeing in MI, I’m reminded that there are so many beautiful things to see and explore.
Look forward to reading about your experiences.
Prayers for safety as you ride and explore.

Hi travel lover, That sounds like quite the itinerary. Should be fun. Are you going it alone ? We will pray for your safety as you cycle. God bless you as you see new sights and meet many fellow cyclists. Praying for you, Erika. ( training for tour de France ? ) Sent from my iPad
