Cycling the Bruce is an exceptional tour. The ride follows the dramatic shores of Georgian Bay northwards and then heads south along the tree-lined roads and sandy beaches of Lake Huron. Begin in the shipping port of Owen Sound and cycle along the quiet country roads into the heart of the Bruce. Since this is a leisurely ride, you will have enough time to stop at many of the area’s impressive lookouts and enjoy the view. Hike to the Bruce Caves, visit Wiarton Willy and see the breathtaking beauty of Lion’s Head. Other highlights include a walk along the Bruce Trail to the unique cairns at Cypress Lake, and a search for shipwrecks in Fathom Five National Marine Park. The return legs cut through the centre of the peninsula and swing right to join the warmer waters of Lake Huron. After cycling through dense forest, wetlands and the port towns of Pikes Bay and Howdenvale, the highlight of the return trip will be the refreshing rushing waters at Sauble Falls. Surface: Asphalt and gravel country roads. Recommended Bicycles: Hybrid/Mountain/Touring.
