Road Cycling

Ready to ride the open roads of BruceGreySimcoe with your bike?  Just a reminder to plan ahead, book ahead”. COVID-19 has changed up how operators run their businesses, which may include reduced hours and services. Check ahead to make sure trails are open and, if planning to stay overnight, to book your accommodation ahead of time.  It’s a good idea to make meal reservations where possible or make a picnic of it with a take-out meal from one of our local eateries. 
 
BruceGreySimcoe continues to attract more and more road cyclists – and with good reason!   Spectacular scenery, quiet country roads with low traffic volume, access to services, repair stations and starting points with parking, washrooms and water (note that these amenities may be impacted by COVID-19) add up to a very attractive cycling destination.  With certified Ontario By Bike businesses, restaurants and accommodation in Bruce County-SouthwestGrey and Simcoe Counties and a healthy Share the Road program in Grey, it’s no wonder cyclists love it here.  

Racing cyclists are loving the area too. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, cycling events here have been postponed or cancelled for the 2021 season, with some being held in different formats as virtual events..  They include Creemore Springs' Turas MorSea Otter Scarecrow Gravel Grind at Blue Mountain and the Gran Fondo Lake Huron.

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.  Four 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.
