A beautiful ride along the river road maintained by the Niagara Parks Commission. From Fort Erie to Niagara-On-The-Lake, the length of the Niagara River with the Falls in the middle. Expect tourist traffic in the summer and ride at dawn or dusk for some amazing sunrise and sunsets. I live here and ride this weekly just to relax and enjoy the lush landscape and gardens along the way.

A pretty ride, abounds with stunning beauty. Niagara Falls has tremendous falls, and well worth a visit. Park you bike at Niagara-On-The-Lake (NOTL) and spend a few hours visiting this 19th century village. Unique shopping, great eating, and a very pretty place.
