Road Cycling

BruceGreySimcoe is well on its way to becoming a premier road cycling destination in Ontario – and with good reason!   Spectacular scenery, quiet country roads with low traffic volume, access to services and starting points with parking, washrooms and water all add up to “cyclists welcome here”.  Add to that certified Ontario By Bike businesses, restaurants and accommodation in Bruce County-SouthwestGrey and Simcoe Counties, a healthy Share the Road program in Grey, and Cycle Simcoe’s outdoor repair stations, it’s no wonder cyclists love it here.  Canadian Olympian Emily Batty loves to cycle here, back on the trails she grew up riding – watch this video to see where she rides when she’s home.

Racing cyclists are loving the area too. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, cycling events here have been cancelled for the 2020 season, but look for their return in 2021.  They include Creemore Springs' Turas Mor, the Gran Fondo Lake Huron and others.

BruceGreySimcoe’s country roads adapt beautifully and smoothly to cycle touring.   They’re quiet, well surfaced, and jam-packed with diversity. And they’re cycle-friendly, too.  Three of our communities have achieved Bicycle Friendly Community status by the Share the Road Cycling Coalition  – The Blue Mountains was awarded silver, while Collingwood, Wasaga Beach and Saugeen Shores have all reached the Bronze level.

Whether you’re riding through the scenic Beaver Valley, along Lake Huron and Georgian Bay or through the rolling hills of Simcoe County, there are always new roads to explore.
