This three or four-day ride begins and ends in Sarnia taking riders on a scenic cycle along the St. Clair River for the first day.
As winter is very slowly rolling into a cool spring, the time has come when many of us look at the frosty corners on our windows with frustration and exasperation.
ALONG THE LAKE ERIE SHORELINE – The luscious scent of lavender. A zippy Chardonnay. A tranquil boardwalk. And a ridiculously good hamburger served on a perfect patio.
PORT STANLEY, ONTARIO – Call it a tale of two cities. Or maybe three.
On the one hand, Port Stanley is your quintessential southern Ontario town. There are old-time B and B’s with giant porches and carpets of stunning flowers and quaint shops selling outdoor gear and fashionable women’s shoes and a cute coffee shop.
Itinerary highlights: fabulous food, a sculpture park, cycling through Essex Pelee Island Coast (EPIC) wine country, exploring Pelee Island and birding.
