  • Sunday April 7th ride cancelled due to inclement weather, fingers crossed for no rain here!

    With the nice weather on the way, I'd love to do another tour of some Niagara Wineries. It was a fantastic ride last summer, and I did it again in October.

    The weather is nice for cycling barring rain, alternate Date: Saturday April 20th. (If the weather is nice on the Sunday, I'd be up to going on both days!)

    Length: 60+ km with winery stops & 1.5-2 hour roundtrip drive
    Speed: 15-20 km
    Skill Level: Intermediate to Expert
    Surface: Roads & Asphalt trails
    Terrain: Mostly flat around Niagara-on-the-Lake, Hills from Queenston Heights to and from Niagara-on-the-Lake.

    Meeting time 8:15 am in front of the Ricoh Coliseum.

    I can take 3 passengers with bikes. When you RSVP, please comment on wether or not you're driving (+how many you could take) or if you need a ride) If passengers could contribute $12-15 or so each to the driver to defray gas, that'd be a great gesture.

    Here's my proposed route - Park at the Floral Clock and cycle up to Table Rock to see the falls, and then backtrack and go to NotL.

    With time constraints, I think we can taste at Hillebrand and skip the tour!

    I've been to most of the wineries on the route, and added a few that I'd like to check out. As we're going along, we can always make an unscheduled stop or three at other wineries on the route.

    We can stop in Niagara-on-the-lake for an early-ish lunch, as eating at the wineries can be extremely expensive.

    Dinner, Zooma Zooma Cafe in Jordan Station, Time Permitting.

    Weather looks way worse than it was 2 weeks ago. Still dealing with remnants of a flu so I don't really want to fight with freezing wind. Some other time.
