With the development of key cross-regional signed routes, such as the (Great Lakes) Waterfront Trail (in both southern and northern sections) and over 200 km of the Trans Canada Trail in Chatham-Kent there is now more connectivity between trails and roads for cyclists across the region. Both trail systems are renowned attractions and are enjoyed by both residents and visitors alike as they offer scenic cycling along lakes and rivers and through picturesque rural landscapes.
There are also an increasing number of shorter trails suitable for recreational cyclists in the Chatham-Kent region, including trails along waterfronts, wetlands and in natural settings. Also great cycling experiences exist in provincial parks and conservation areas throughout the region.
With mountain biking trails accessible in the south western portion of the region, there is cycling for every type of cyclist. Chatham-Kent provides a number of information resources and published maps that cyclists can use to assist with planning cycling activities and routes in the region.
