Warmer weather is finally here and that means it’s time to plan your spring and summer cycling getaways! Discover the best scenery in Orillia & Lake Country this year with a socially distanced cycling tour with Humdinger Bicycle Tours.

Ride (and taste!) your way through the best of the region on multi day cycling tours designed to get your heart pumping. Choose from three guided and self-guided tours that include overnight accommodation as well as professional guides and meals at Orillia and Lake Country’s top spots.

Humdinger Bicycle Tours Owner Sara McEwan, an Orillia native, feels that Orillia & Lake Country area is the ideal place for cycling tours: “Simcoe County and Orillia and Lake Country have absolutely everything a cyclist and a vacationer could want. In terms of road cycling. We have quiet, low-traffic roads that provide excellent scenery – rolling farmland, natural forests, and perfect lake front.”

Humdinger’s friendly, knowledgeable guides lead each group and guests can either rent a bike or bring their own. Whether you’re a novice rider or a pro cyclist, these tours offer a great experience for all riders. Check out this year’s tour offerings, and ride on!
