Other Tours

Plan ahead, book ahead this summer for your cycling adventure before leaving home. Due to COVID-19, many of our operators have adjusted the way they do business for your safety, that of their staff and their own as business owners. Reach out and contact them to check operating hours, vacancy and for new protocols now in place. To experience a top-notch cycling escape, book accommodations, meals and tours ahead of time to avoid disappointment.

Venture beyond the traditional bike routes by adapting other BruceGreySimcoe tours and trails for your next cycling adventure.  Pay homage to one of Canada’s iconic artists by riding the Tom Thomson trail (suitable for mountain or hybrid bikes), running between Owen Sound and Meaford.  Explore Owen Sound’s Black history by following the “Bear Paw” markers on the 10-kilometre Freedom Trail route, which travels close to the Black History Cairn in Harrison Park, a memorial to the city’s first black settlers. (Some local trivia for you: Owen Sound was the last “terminal” of the underground railroad, the escape route for slaves coming to Canada).  

Break the route down into sections and indulge your green thumb with a visit to the Rural Gardens of Grey and Bruce Counties. Or browse BruceGreySimcoe’s art studios and galleries guided by The Art Map.  Work in a few stops on your route to include the oh-so-sweet Honey Trail

Branch out and book an Apple Pie Trail™ adventure!  The 14 km Thornbury Sticky Bun Loop starts at the Thornbury Bakery with trail stops for this fun and yummy trail along the loop.  Cycle back in time along the Heart of Georgian Bay’s Historical Cycling Route, featuring the area’s historic gems including Sainte-Marie among the Hurons, the Wye Marsh and the Martyrs’ Shrine (check ahead for hours).

Humdinger Bicycle Tours offers some pretty cool multi-day options: the Beautiful Bruce County Fully Guided 6 Day Tour, the three-day Blue Mountains and Collingwood Guided/Self-Guided Tour and the Pedal, Pints & Pubs Orillia 2 Day Tour.
