Great Lakes

24 Days Moderate 2200 KmAVG 110 Km

The middle section of our cross-Canada cycling adventure starts in Winnipeg and soon crosses the border into the Canadian province of Ontario. Here the riders will enter the spectacular Lake of the Woods region, an area of endless islands, lakes, river, forests and abundant wildlife. The expedition then stops in Thunder Bay for a rest day at the head of Lake Superior, also known by its original Ojibwe name, Gitche Gumee. The world’s largest freshwater lake holds a significant place in the Canadian psyche, in part due to the classic Gordon Lightfoot song, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

After a last look across the harbour at the famous island aptly called the Sleeping Giant, the cyclists will head out on an incredible week-long ride along the north shore of Superior. The scenery is simply spectacular. Here the unique geology of the Canadian Shield has created an endless vista of colourful granite outcroppings, framed by windswept pine trees and wild waves crashing against exposed rocks and deserted beaches. The evenings spent in campsites like Rainbow Falls and Pancake Bay, when riders gather around blazing campfires and look up into star-studded skies, will remain in their memories for a long, long time.

The expedition takes a break in the border city of Sault Ste. Marie before continuing on to the largest fresh water island in the world, Manitoulin Island. From here the riders will enjoy a beautiful ferry ride across Georgian Bay to the town of Tobermory, home to Fathom Five National Marine Park and its 22 shipwrecks and historic lighthouses. The cyclists then head down the Bruce Peninsula and east along the shores of Georgian Bay. At the resort town of Collingwood the riders will turn south, hopefully stopping for a beer at the legendary Creemore Springs Brewery before arriving in Canada’s largest and one of the world’s most ethnically diverse city, Toronto, which marks the end of this dynamic section.
