Roads & Trails

We Travel

Back Road Cycling tours and clinics in southwestern Ontario are hosted by Susanne Spence Wilkins shown here on a winding gravel road in Chatham-Kent

Winding Country Roads

We select our routes for the quality of the ride and scenery.  We love gravel and less-travelled hard top that take you to the heart of the country and avoid traffic. 

Back road bicycle rides are held in the fall along golden leaf edged gravel roads

Three Seasons

From early Spring to late Fall (an maybe beyond), we follow roads that nature nestles up too. 

Back Road Cycling tours and clinics in southwestern Ontario often include routes along groomed rail trails which is shown here with two riders on the Erieau March Trail

Rail Trails

Groomed rail trails are expanding throughout the area.  From well-treed avenues to open fields, the route travels through back fields of the country.
