The Story: Bluewater Granfondo

1 resized

It was December 2015, on a cold brisk morning, when a few cyclists gathered at a local cafe that the Bluewater International Granfondo (BIG) was born. The goals were simple. Within four years, BIG has had an impact far greater than anyone could have imagined.


Rail Trails In Kawartha Lakes

IMG 8843 2 resize

The City of Kawartha Lakes, which incorporates Lindsay and the surrounding area, sits at the cross-roads of two major rail trails in Ontario. Travelling east to west across the entire region, the Great Trail, known locally as the Kawartha Trans Canada Trail intersects the Victoria Rail Trail, which runs north to south and offers plenty of trail riding for those looking to take bike trips in the heart of Ontario's cottage country.

Le coup de coeur de notre voyage de vélo
Nous avons adoré notre séjour au Ashgrove! Pour les cyclistes, c'est le meilleur endroit où s'arrêter !
Des 17 jours de cyclotourisme, ce bed & breakfast a été notre coup de cœur! Janie a été super accueillante, gentille et elle a montré qu'elle est attentive aux besoins des cyclistes en nous offrant de laver notre linge de vélo. C'est la première fois que cela nous a été offert de toutes les auberges où nous sommes restés en Ontario et au Québec ces dernières années et il faut dire que c'est important quand on est plusieurs jours sur la route! Et Dave nous a offert plusieurs fois la pompe à air et nous a aidés à l'utiliser!

Nous avons aussi beaucoup aimé les déjeuners faits à partir de produits locaux (10/10 pour les scones, miam!).
Un autre point apprécié, les hôtes sont super flexibles sur l'heure d'arrivée et de départ et ils essaient d'accommoder le plus possible les invités.

Le B&B est situé très proche à 10 min de marche de la rue principale, tout proche des vignobles, des pistes cyclables et de tout! Vraiment j'espère avoir l'occasion de revenir un jour! Un grand Merci!
