The official departure will be at 11:00 am on Saturday June 22 from Burlington GO Station parking lot, where you can

park your car for free over the weekend. We will cycle mostly on the Waterfront Trail all the way to Port Dalhousie and

then down the Welland Canal trail to Niagara College Residence (137 Taylor Rd, Niagara-on-the-Lake, 905-641-4435).

Accommodation at the College will be in two-room suites with shared washroom and kitchen area.

For those who are interested, there is the option of riding all the way from Toronto to NOTL. This group will leave at 8

am from Mimico GO parking lot (free parking over the weekend) and meet the main group at Burlington GO at 11 am.

Note that the ride from Mimico to Burlington will be at Tourist pace.

Some things to bring in a small backpack or pannier:

 A change of clothes for dinner on Saturday night (casual is fine)

 Cycling clothes for two days

 A small medium security lock

 A spare inner tube

 A couple of water bottles

 A rain jacket (if showers are in the forecast)

 Bike lights for the 3K ride from the Sunday dinner stop to Burlington GO.

For almost all of the winery stops on Sunday, our bikes will be close to us and within view but not always. That’s why

a small medium security lock is advised. Two people can lock their bikes together with one lock. If necessary, the non-

drinkers at those stops can take shifts watching the bikes.

We aim to maintain brisk Urban Roller pace at a speed of around 20 kph. At that speed, it should take around 5 hours

to get to Niagara College. That means that we should get to the residence around 4 pm. Check-in starts at 3 pm.

We have 7 pm reservations for the patio at the Play Bar and Grill in the White Oaks Resort (across the road from the


On Sunday, we can have breakfast at MacDonald’s, Starbucks or a few other fast food type places within a 10-minute

walk. We need to be on the road at 10:00. Below is the itinerary for Saturday and Sunday.
