Scenic Wheeling

Bruce County’s country roads lend themselves naturally and beautifully to cycle touring. They’re quiet, well surfaced, and jam-packed with diversity. You can cycle from sandy beaches in the west to rocky cliffs in the east. Roads climb up and over the Niagara Escarpment and run along some of Canada’s most stunning shoreline. There are plenty of ups and downs and twists and turns, along with tantalizing destinations. You can link lighthouses, visit rural gardens, string together a succession of beaches, head to Harley’s Pub and Perk in Mildmay for butter tarts, or ride to Big Bay General Store for ice cream. That’s the great pleasure about road cycling in the Bruce – you can spin it any which way you want.
