Upper & Lower Canada

12 Days Moderate 1075 KmAVG 1 Km

This section begins in Toronto, the world’s most diverse city – 51 per cent of the population is foreign born and some 230 different nationalities call the city home. After checking out the CN Tower, the stunning Aga Khan museum or simply spending time in one of Toronto’s burgeoning craft breweries, the cyclists will head out of the city along the Lake Ontario waterfront trail. A couple days later the riders will arrive in Prince Edward County, home to Canada’s newest and most exciting wine region. Riders can spin through the county’s back roads, sampling some of the world’s best pinot noir and snacking at roadside fruit stands.

Next up is the picturesque university town of Kingston, Canada’s first capital, littered with gorgeous limestone buildings. From here the route turns north and follows the historic Rideau Canal, North America’s oldest continuously operated canal, which was built in 1832 to deter an attempted American invasion. The cyclists reach the end of the canal in Ottawa, the country’s capital and the headquarters for the Canada’s 150th birthday bash. After a rest day spent exploring the city and visiting sites such as the Parliament Buildings, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the National Gallery, and the Royal Canadian Mint, the riders head east along the Ottawa River bound for Montreal.

Montreal is the world’s second largest French-speaking city after Paris. Here the riders will enjoy the city’s renown joie-de-vivre, its incredible culinary scene, North America’s best cycling culture and the cobble stoned streets of the Vieux Port. Reluctantly, the expedition then heads north-east along the province of Quebec’s incredible cycling paths, known as La Route Verte. These trails will take the riders on a car-free journey through rolling hills, dotted with small towns where they can test out their language skills ordering from the local fromagerie, bistro or charcuterie. This bilingual section draws to a close in Quebec City, founded in 1608 and the heart of French culture and history in North America.
