Cycling in late Summer, early Fall is my favourite. Their are fall colours, warm but not hot weather and fewer people on the trails (which I can never understand). One of my go to cycling destinations for the family is Ontario’s Lake Country. There are great cycling trails, our favourite being the Oro-medonte rail trail. The trail is easy for even the newest cycling members of the family and offers great scenery and easy access to Lake Simcoe and small villages to explore.

There are plenty of places to get off the bikes and explore.
A family-friendly trail even for those that just graduated from training wheels.
Late Summer offers a lot of gorgeous trail side colour.
The beginning of the leaves changing colour. Definitely worth riding the trail again in late September when the colours are at peak.
A long day on the trails definitely earns you a visit to Couchiching Park for a swim to cool off.
… and no visit to Couchiching Park is complete without a visit to the historic French’s for ice cream or fries.
