Niagara cycling tourism
Green Belt Route
48 Km in Niagara, starts at the Brock monument (4 km from Green Oaks B&B) and goes to St. Catharines and to Jordon.
Journey through Niagara Region’s fruit belt from Grimsby to Niagara-on-the-lake. In Lincoln, ride along the Escarpment ledge and stop at a scenic vineyard or a well-stocked fruit stand along the way. In downtown St. Catharines, relax on a patio, pick up some lunch or visit a bike shop. Enjoy a combination of urban and agricultural landscapes as you make your way to historic Niagara-on-the-Lake, regarded as Canada’s prettiest small town. The total distance of the Greenbelt Route is 475 km.
Wine Country Route ( 7 wineries are located within 2km of Green Oaks B&B)
Welland Canal Route (Green Oaks is 5 Km to the Canal)
From Bridge 1, the route stretches southwards from St. Catharines to Port Colborne, a distance of 45 km / 28 miles (including George Nicholson Trail). Cycling along the Welland Canal, you will see massive 26,000 ton ships up to 226 metres in length as they glide past grassy banks on their way to climb the Niagara Escarpment.
