A Healthy Dose of Fun with Private, Small Group Cycling Tours!

A Healthy Dose of Fun with Private, Small Group Cycling Tours! This is the summer of the private, small group cycling tour. Move outdoors to enjoy the warm weather, spin your legs, see the sights and taste the local fare with a group of close friends. Building your own bike tour allows you to decide where you are going, when, and with whom. It keeps things fun, safe and healthy!  Add in some custom support such as luggage transfer and other services and the trip becomes relaxing, low-stress vacation for everyone. Where to ride? Ontario offers every type of cycling in every corner of the province. There are many great resources for some big picture planning, such as Cycle Simcoe, Ontario by Bike and the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail. At Humdinger Bicycle Tours, we operate in Ontario’s loosely-defined “cottage country”, […]

Sunglasses in Haliburton Cycling Route

Posted

Post pandemic planning continues… This week we are checking out the Sunglasses route in  Haliburton Highlands. It is so named for its shape, and it was developed for our Hills of Huntsville & Haliburton tour. A flattish section makes an appearance on our novice-oriented Pedal, Pints & Pubs tour. The route is 68 kilometres and has almost 600 metres of climbing. It starts in the town of Minden and makes a figure 8 that includes South Lake Road, Kashagawigamog Lake Road, Gelert Road, and Bethel Road, and a wee excursion down Deep Bay Road to add on the arm of the sunglasses- see mapmyride link at the bottom of this post. As with all of our routes, this one has great scenery, including a chance to view paddlers at the Minden Whitewater Preserve. Stuff to know before you go There […]

Tiny and Tay Route: A Trail of Two Dogs

Posted

Tiny and Tay townships in north Simcoe County are known for their rich history, adjacency to Georgian Bay, and… being the namesakes of dogs owned by the wife of the Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada from 1818-1828. Today I am sharing a route that is  part of our Georgian Bay – Muskoka tour, so you can start planning ahead for easier times. It is  a delightful, moderate-difficulty point-to-point trip that cuts through both townships, starting just outside of Waubashene and ending in the town of Wasaga Beach, with an optional extension to Collingwood. It is mostly flat, with the notable exception of a hill out of Midland. Much of the ride is along the scenic shores of Georgian Bay. The route is 75km one way. There is a route map and link to a mapmyride file at the end of […]
