Trip Inspiration | Haldimand

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.

There are two camps of grocery shoppers: those who hate the task and those who actually don’t mind or may even enjoy doing it. Unfortunately, even those of us who don’t dread going out for groceries have been challenged to find pleasure in trips to the supermarket over the course of the pandemic. If months of retail roadblocks like longer lineups, shortages, and “creative” substitutions in online orders have squeezed every ounce of pleasure from your weekly shop, it’s time to shake up your grocery game.

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.
