Great Lakes Tour - Erie


For the cyclist who cannot take 15 days off, but still wants to ride our Great Lakes Tour, try Great Lakes Tour - Erie. The first section of the Great Lakes Tour covers 582 miles in 8 cycling days (9 total). Enjoy the sites of Niagara Falls, rural Ontario, Ohio’s lake shore, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as you circumnavigate Lake Erie.


Great Lakes Tour - Erie begins, ends and includes a rest day at one of the world’s most magnificent natural wonders - Niagara Falls. First, we circumnavigate Lake Erie by riding in Canada along the Welland Canal to Port Colborne. Here you may see a “laker” eastward bound towards Lake Ontario. Heading west, we ride into the town of Port Dover on our way to Simcoe. This tour has two century days, one of which finds us riding into Leamington, Ontario, the home of Heinz Ketchup. The following day we ”rest” aboard the Pelee Island Ferry as it takes us on a scenic cruise across Lake Erie to Sandusky, Ohio. As the ferry arrives in Sandusky, you can catch a lakeside view of one of the best rollercoaster parks in the USA, Cedar Point. As the adventure continues, we turn east toward Cleveland, where the route follows along the waterfront with opportunities to see Cleveland Brown Stadium and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame before heading on to Mentor, Ohio. Continuing on past small marinas, we ride through Erie, PA and then stop in the city of Dunkirk, NY. We complete the Lake Erie portion by riding through Buffalo, NY, before crossing back into Canada. We’ll ride along the scenic Niagara River as we head back to Niagara Falls
