    Hello from Ancaster, Ontario, Canada

    We are seniors (over 65) and we own "Specialized" hybrid bikes. We have enjoyed riding trails in Niagara Falls, Ottawa, Burlington, Hamilton, Bay of Quinte area, Fergus and Elora area, and other local areas. We have been cycling for over 30 years and like to cycle anywhere the scenery is worth viewing and where we can enjoy a pleasant, traffic-less area, and meet other cyclists at the same time. I like this site because it gives me the opportunity to seek help when I don't know the answer to some mechanical problems on a bike. I try to do all my own repairs and adjustments so this is an interesting website. Great site!

    Welcome aboard!
    The last time we went to Niagara Falls,
    we stayed at a hotel in St.Catherine's
    and passed thru Niagara on the Lake;
    very nice area.

    If you go that way again, you should cycle the beautiful paved trail that runs from Ft. Erie to Niagara Falls, and from Niagara Falls to Niagara-on-the-Lake. It would be a whole day affair with lunch in N-o-t-L or in Niagara Falls.

    Welcome,
    My wife and I are retired and live in Port Dover. We ride Giant Hybrids, Schwinn Tangos (folders) and now have 4 vintage Raleighs in various stages of restoration. The riding is great here! Trails from Port Dover to Simcoe to Waterford to Brantford, Paris to Ancaster. Get in touch if you feel like an outing.
    Happy Trails,
    George and Sandi
