Spend two nights at trendy Penny’s Motel in charming Thornbury, where the Niagara escarpment and Georgian Bay turquoise waters meet. We will guide you along quiet country roads and through apple orchards. You will also discover Collingwood for one day. This trip has a very leisurely rhythm, there's time to wander in town, or walk down to the pier with some ice cream.
If you are in the mood for more cycling, check out our add-ons for optional rides into the highlands, including a sunset guided ride, shuttle up the hill and self-guided downhill ride, or a la carte GPX files. This area has so much to offer and we are here to help you enjoy it at your own pace.
