Bicycle Routes

Northeastern Ontario is now included in the Ontario By Bike Network of bicycle-friendly businesses. While out cycling, look for the Ontario By Bike decal at restaurants, attractions, and accommodation providers in the region. These bicycle-friendly businesses will offer cyclists secure bike lock-up areas, local cycling information on-hand, healthy local food options, access to rest areas, water, and basic bicycle repair tool sets (accommodation providers only). After deciding where you plan to cycle, check out the network map to locate those businesses that will go the extra mile to accommodate cyclists!

Businesses interested in becoming part of the network are encouraged to register HERE
