From excellent trails and mountain biking to fantastic road riding, cyclists in the Parry Sound District will enjoy the spectacularly scenic landscapes through lush boreal forests with frequent glimpses of picturesque lakes, meandering rivers, the rocky Canadian Shield and the UNESCO designated Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve. Road riding in the Parry Sound District offers quieter roads criss-crossing through the rural landscape with opportunities to stop at quaint general stores, interesting cultural heritage sites, and welcoming communities along the way.
Cyclists can also explore the trails that wind their way along the rugged shores of Georgian Bay and the town of Parry Sound, with views out to the Bay and nearby 30,000 islands. With an increasing amount of multi-use trails and signature trail projects, such as the Trans Canada Trail and the Park to Park Trail, as well as a number of mountain biking facilities on both private lands, as well as in provincial parks, the Parry Sound District is an attractive destination for trail riding enthusiasts.
