Welland & Pelham, bicycle friendly communities

  • June 10, 2018

So what does “Bike Friendly” really mean to you and me?

I am no expert on the subject matter, but I do know that in these bike friendly communities you will find additional bike lanes, improved signage, bike pumps and bike racks at key locations.

Welland has the Greater Niagara Cycle Trail, which passes straight through Welland, mostly along side of the Welland Canal. This trail runs 150 kilometers throughout the Niagara Region, and it mostly paved, and mostly off the main road.

Plan your cycling trip with one of our favorite sites, they have route suggestions for all over Niagara.

Don’t own a bike, or it won’t fit on your car…no problem! Contact Cycle-Logical Rentals, they offer daily bike rentals, they will even drop off the bike to the hotel! Contact them for full details or , save $5 off a half or full day rental when you tell her we referred you.

Cycling from Welland to Port Colborne is only 13km one way, and Welland to St Catharines is 25km one way. Want to put in more distance, go further with Bridget in Port Robinson. She’s a ferry that operates in season to get you from one side of the canal to the other. The Bridget project divided the cycle route into two routes, a 99km or 86km route, so pick your challenge, and we’ll see you soon!

Just this past Canada Day weekend, I took on the challenge to cycle 100k – wow, it was great! We were on country roads from Welland, to Dunville, to Lowbanks, to Port Colborne.

We’re less than 2hours from Toronto, ON and 2hours from London, ON, it’s worth the drive to Welland with your bikes.
