Well, we do, you see:
The Niagara Parkway from Niagara-on-the-Lake to Fort Erie is approx. 120km in length, and (in most sections) very well paved. The section from Niagara Falls (at Chippawa) to Ft. Erie is sparsely travelled, flat, and scenic. The section from the 'Falls to NOTL is gently rolling with one small hill, and more usually travelled by cars. Lots of picnic tables, pull offs, and historical markers etc. This is my daily "bus wrestlin' " route.
The "parallel trail" is the Niagara River Recreational Trail, and though gently rolling and well paved, is more suitable for pedestrians, rollerbladers, wheelchairists, and dog walkers. The nature of the trail makes it ill suited to road bikes, as the sight-lines are poor at speed, and trail barely four pedstrians wide. Yes, they do.
