Cycling is even more rewarding when there’s the promise of some sensational sipping or a tasty meal to get those pedals pumping. Whether you’re in the mood for a quick spin, a long haul, a smooth cycle or an off-road afternoon, if you’re riding in Ontario’s Southwest, you can rest assured there’s always a delicious stop ahead.

Move over destination dining! There’s a fun, new way to get a taste for the flavours of Ontario’s Southwest: scenic snacking! 

Rather than settling in for a multi-course meal at just one restaurant, scenic snacking allows you to graze your way through the region enjoying a series of tasty stops. A driving route with strategically timed fuel-ups along the way is a great way to spend a day. For those who want to make the fun last a little longer, completing a Scenic Snacking bucket list over the course of a season or even a whole year is another fun option. 

Do you know the story behind the food on your plate? How far it travelled from, if it’s in season, or who produced it? The next time you sit down to enjoy a meal, whether it be in the comfort of your own home, or in your favourite local restaurant, take a closer look at what’s in front of you. From creation to consumption and each step in between, when you know the story behind your food, it will leave you with a better taste in your mouth.
