Sip, Snack and Cycle your way through Ontario

Sip, Snack and Cycle your way through Ontario

Satisfy your hunger with great culinary experiences best served by bike! Ontario has a growing reputation as a culinary destination and what better way to work up an appetite than on your bike. From vibrant farmer's markets to craft breweries, Ontario has your menu covered!

Treat your palette to local fare served fresh at London, Ontario’s Covent Garden Market. Taste some of the region’s best homemade soups, baked goods, and perogies! Cyclists can access the market, and the heart of London, using the city’s bike lanes and signed bike routes that connect the Thames River Pathway to the city centre.



While most are familiar with Ontario wines from the Niagara and Prince Edward County, head to Ontario’s southern most region, along the north shore of Lake Erie, and into Essex County. This wine region has some of the longest growing seasons in the country and cycling experiences are front and centre. Enjoy the award winning Wine Trail Rides or if wine isn’t your cup of tea, consider the half-day Bike and Beer Tour. Put a focus on local food and wine with these pedal-powered culinary experiences.


If you find yourself cycling the renowned Kawartha Trans Canada Trail, stop into Lindsay for an experience best served chilled. Acting as the gateway to cottage country, the historic mainstreet and town center will give cyclists the opportunity to rest and reward themselves with legendary Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream. If you think a double scoop would be too much, try a single. If a double scoop doesn’t faze you, try Death By Chocolate.


Take a break from the incredible trail and road riding found throughout Prescott-Russell and head to charming Vankleek Hill, the ‘Gingerbread Capital of Ontario’. Boasting some of the provinces best Victorian-style architecture, Vankleek Hill is also home to Beau’s All Natural Brewery. What better way to end a day of cycling than sitting on a patio, sipping on a local craft beer! 


Fall in love with the Kitchener-Waterloo region, as you ride into St. Jacobs along the Mill Race Trail (also known as Lover’s Lane). While there’s no such thing as a short visit to St. Jacobs Farmer’s Market, cyclists can quickly satisfy their appetite at any one of the hundreds of vendors on hand every Thursday and Saturday, 7:00am to 3:30pm. If you’re looking to take in some of the fall foliage, consider an autumn ride through the beautiful countryside and stop in for a Bavarian pint at the world’s third largest Oktoberfest celebration.
