Cycling around Lake Erie is a wonderful experience of sights and sounds. Wonderful rural bicycling on both the USA and Canadian sides of the Lake will make your legs spin with joy. On Lake Erie or within a mile of the waterfront are diversions ranging from the Rock & Roll Museum to high rolling casinos.

This Great Lake has a cycling circumference of 725 mi. or 1170 km. Through the cities of Windsor, Leamington, Cleveland, Detroit and Buffalo; along the rural roads of Southwestern Ontario, Western New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio; across the Lake via ferries and Islands the cyclotourist travels!

Jutting out on a peninsula into the Lake, Point Pelee National Park is a gem in Canada’s National Park System. Noted for its extensive system of paths and its avian wildlife this unique Park will delight your senses.

Riding through rural Southwestern Ontario the many port villages along the Lake’s North shore will provide entertainment and fine dining experiences. Provincial Parks and Conservation Areas provide camping facilities and outdoors experiences. Almost every small Ontario village has a fine bakery too. Ontarians greet touring bicyclists as friends rather than tourists.

New York's shoreline begins at Buffalo's rejuvenated waterfront with its Naval Museum, Erie Canal Historic docks and Riverview Trial to Tonawanda (Erie Canal) and Niagara Falls. Buffalo has a vibrant downtown with theaters, historic sites and wonderful architecture, a city not to be missed. From there, the shoreline goes into rural areas with State Parks and small cities with historical links to the War of 1812. A bonus tour in this Guide Book is the route around Chautauqua Lake with its famed Chautauqua Institution.

Presque Isle with its 17 miles of trails and beautiful beaches will delight your senses with its unique flora and fauna. Its on a peninsula and accessible by bike from nearby Erie, PA via road or aquabus.

Rounding the broad sweep of the Lake's shoreline in Ohio are small towns like Geneva-on-the-Lake. The village's traditional amusement park rides will bring a smile to your face as much as the mega-sized Cedar Point Amusement Park outside of Sandusky brings thrills to you. The beaches at Port Clinton on the South shore will amaze you as much as the resort villages on the North shore.

Riding through the industrial heartland of North America you will visit industrial and social history museums as you go from Cleveland to Detroit. Cross the Detroit River by a unique ferry rather than waiting for the bridge pick up truck or hitching a ride with a passing motorist.

The trails along both sides of the Niagara River from Buffalo, NY or Fort Erie, ON to Niagara Falls are in this tour guidebook.

The only map and itinerary of the entire bicycle route along the Welland Canal connecting Lakes Erie and Ontario is in this wonderful bicycling tour book.
