Cycling in Northern Ontario is taken from the Cycling in Ontario from Ulysses Green Escapes guides. This affordable chapter is a great tool to organize your next cycling trip in this region.
Ontario’s northeastern region extends from the narrow band of land surrounding Lake Nipissing between Georgian Bay and the Quebec border to the enormous land mass between Lake Superior and Hudson Bay. Most of the territory consists of tundra lowlands north of the tree line. Ontario’s north-western region extends westward from Wawa on Lake Superior to the Manitoba border and northwards from Lake Superior and Minnesota to Hudson Bay. Much of it is dotted with large and small lakes, rivers, bogs, marsh and tundra. So its perhaps not surprising that canoeing reaches more territory than any other form of transportation.
Cycling in Northern Ontario offers 37 trails and 3 longer tours in this region like the Lake of the Woods Transcanada Trail and the Geological Mystery Tour. It includes information on how to get there, the level of difficulty, the total distance, the interesting features (villages and towns, tourist attractions and bike-related stores) and the facilities.
