Our Customers Say
"I then first ordered the Ontario Bicycle Touring Atlas, which I
regard as the best such publication I have ever seen. I wish every
province and state had something similar, for those of us looking to plan
BL Ontario Bicycle Touring Atlas
"First of all, thanks for your help in organizing what turned out to be a
really fun, enjoyable trip. The kids.... and I really enjoyed ourselves.
You were right about the route. The paths made it enjoyable and being by
water all the time was great for the kids. Lots to do along the way!
Interesting historical sites and terrific wineries."
KT Custom Route
"Our trip was fantastic! We had such a great time and certainly saw a lot of scenery,
Bob ate pie at many, many places (his favorite part of our bike trips), the equipment
provided by [the bike rental company] was excellent! ..... The accommodations were good
throughout. So, all in all, it exceeded our expectations - I wish we could find other people
in other parts of our country who provide the same type and level of service -
everyone here wants to provide support (and charge accordingly)."
SJ Custom Route
"I just completed a Windsor to Toronto ride using your bike atlas for my map.
It worked out very well. In the US, I have used Adventure Cycling’s maps for
tours but found that your bike atlas was a better tool. I was able to easily
modify my route to better utilize the time I had available for my tour and the
routes that were highlighted on your maps were very bike-appropriate.
JH Ontario Bicycle Touring
"The Ontario Bicycle Tour Atlas was
invaluable. Really liked the appendix at the back which listed
places to stay with phone numbers. Very handy when you got in
late to a town and the tourist info was closed to be able to phone
one of the listed places and so easily get accommodation. ....
Thanks for all your hard work creating this great biking
reference. CE Ontario Bicycle Touring Atlas
"We were very pleased with the quality of your service and the information package your sent us.
It really helped us plan a great trip. Thanks again and looking forward dealing with
Bike On Tours again in the future."
OT Grand Niagara Package Route
"The entire trip was wonderful. The daily
routes were varied, the B&Bs were outstanding (incredibly
comfortable and hospitable), the length and pace were just right
....We will definitely look to do another trip with you in the
future and will mention Bike On Tours to all our cycling friends who
would find your company very appealing and useful. I think that it
would be very hard for us to use a guided outfitter again after
experiencing your incredible attention to service and detail. Thanks
again for all your help and guidance.
DP Niagara Custom Route

Enjoy Self Guided Bicycle Touring
It is quite easy and much more affordable to bicycle and be your own tour guide
when you obtain the help that you need. We can take away the worry of
trip planning; finding good roads to bike on, figuring out distances, finding scenic
routes and locating conveneint accommodation or camping for the night.
Enjoy the most scenic areas of Ontario, mostly on less busy paved secondary roads
and some bike paths. We spend a lot of time developing the routes, rejecting many busy
regional roads and highways that are prominent on road maps in favour of quiet local roads.
There are several different ways to keep your luggage with you. When bicycling
a short distance each day the best option is to stay in one location, biking for
several days in short loops or out and back on the same route. You can move to
another location and bicycle from there as well. Experienced long distance cyclists
carry what they need, either in panniers or a trailer. Bicycle touring
groups can bring their own support vehicle. Someone that you know may agree to
be the driver. Those who want to bicycle less distance may be glad to take turns driving
or the driver can bicycle back to meet the group after going to the destination for the day.
In some areas we are able to arrange luggage transfer service. This can be
quite inexpensive when shared by a group, since the cost is usually not much more
than for one or two cyclists. Inquire if you want this service.
What about parking for your motor vehicle while you are off bicycling?
For day rides leave your vehicle at a park or in a local business area where
public parking is permitted. Overnight parking is often prohibited. For multi-day
rides ask accommodation providers where you will stay for at least one night if
they will let you leave a vehicle with them for a few days. This is usually
not a problem and if they do not have space they will often know of where you
might leave your vehicle. If that does not work for you try asking local tourist
information offices if they can assist. All of these parking arrangements are
at your own risk.
