There's no better place than Manitoulin to book your cycle adventure tour. The world’s largest fresh water Island is so quiet you can hear a  bird’s wings. Cyclists across North America love our silent, serenely beautiful country roads that offer exquisite views over Georgian Bay, the famous North Channel and the vast expanse of Lake Huron. Everything moves at a leisurely pace, locals call it "Island Time".  The island offers 108 sparkling inland lakes and over 800 kilometres of cycle routes. Come and see for yourself why Manitoulin is one of the best loved cycle destinations in Ontario. This tour lets you experience fascinating marine and geological history, natural Alvar, art galleries, First Nations art and culture, one-of-a-kind Mom and Pop shops, plentiful locally produced food and drink, and much more.
