1000 Islands St. Lawrence River Ride

Dates: May 24 to 26, 2024
Duration: 
3 days, 2 nights

Total Distance: 157km

The Ride: Cycle one of the most spectacular routes in Ontario discovering the 1000 Islands and St Lawrence River on a three day, long weekend tour. Starting from Gananoque and ending in Cornwall, following the Waterfront Trail east, this ride is on a mix of trails and roads and includes the stunning 1000 Islands Parkway Trail and Long Sault Parkway. Plan to slow down the pace to take in the scenery and make the most of waterfront rest stops and villages. Enjoy a night in Brockville before pedalling on to Morrisburg for the second night, and the last day of riding taking in an array of natural and heritage attractions in what was once called Upper Canada. This ride follows a linear route, and includes return transportation for you and your bike. We make it easy – Just bring your bike and ride.

Experience Level and Ride Guide: Moderate. Riders on this ride need to have some experience riding on roads with vehicle traffic as the route is approximately half on roads and half on trails or park roads. The route does follow a signed bike route, the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail, but not all segments have bike lanes or paved shoulders to ride in. Some of the road route is on very quiet country roads, other segments are busier. Off-road trails do incorporate some segments of unpaved surfaces, which are hard packed so easy to ride. The majority of ride is on paved surfaces, and combined with limited elevation changes, the flat terrain makes this ride suitable for hybrid bikes, mountain bikes and road bikes. Enjoy a group ride option or ride at your own pace using detailed maps and information provided.

Price: $419pp (based on double occupancy); $579pp (single); $369 (triple); $339 (quad) +HST.

What’s Included: 2 nights hotel accommodations; 2 breakfast and 3 lunches; snacks and hydration stops; parking; luggage transfer; support SAG van; ride ambassadors; group social; detailed route maps; bus shuttle back to start location.
