Crazy 8 Barn & Garden
Our historic 8-sided barn is located in the small village of Palmyra on the North Shore of Lake Erie. From this base, we offer guided, small group, curated bicycle tours. At a social pace, we explore the backroads of Chatham-Kent and West Elgin areas of southwestern Ontario. We visit farms, breweries, rural architecture gems, bakeries and ice cream shops so that you can discover the stories of our countryside. Our specifically designed routes allow for foraging, photography, and fun. All bikes including e-bikes are welcome. Tours are mainly on well-maintained gravel, rail trails, and back road black top. Participants can book our scheduled tours online or contact Susanne to arrange a private group tour.
Clinics are held throughout the year, specifically geared to getting more women on bikes.
Since we are located on the Erie Connector Route for cross-continent riders and the Waterfront Trail, we welcome cyclists to stop to enjoy the grounds at Crazy 8 Barn & Garden for a break in the shade at anytime.
If we are on site, free wifi, tools and washrooms are available. Unserviced camping can be arranged in advance.
