2021 Cycling In Ontario Guide

Locals Share Top Bike Rides in Waterloo Region

If you are a keen cyclist chances are you know the best routes in your neighbourhood, city and surrounding area. Hence who better to ask than local riders for their favourite rides and destinations in Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge areas for some great fall cycling.


Seeing The Sites of the St. Lawrence By Bike

The St. Lawrence River boasts some of the richest history, culture, and scenery in all of Ontario. As someone who has been an avid road-tripper for his entire life, it took a three-day ride with Ontario by Bike for me to gain a deeper appreciation of the beauty of eastern Ontario.
