Cycling in Niagara
Niagara is becoming known for cycling almost as much as for wine.
A great selection of bicycle routes and trails make this a popular destination for cyclists.
At the Yellow Door, we provide secure bicycle storage along with tools for small tune-ups, nourishing breakfasts and, for a small fee, luggage transfer. Click for our luggage transfer fees.
How about cycling some or all of the Greater Niagara Circle Cycling Route (view a detailed map) which is over 140 km’s of paved, off-road trails and roadways? It winds along the Niagara River bordered by fruit orchards and vineyards, runs past the majestic Niagara Falls, and follows the sandy shores of Lake Erie. It offers “up close” views of the ships passing through the locks of the Welland Canal and opportunity to enjoy the beautiful historical towns such as Niagara-on-the-Lake.
The route is bounded by Lake Ontario to the north, the Niagara River to the east, Lake Erie to the south and the Welland Canal to the west. You are seldom far from the water.
The Yellow Door Bed and Breakfast located in Crystal Beach is just a few minutes away from the Friendship Trail which is a 24 km former rail trail linked to the Greater Niagara Circle Cycling Route.
We were awarded a 2019 Best Bicycle Friendly Business Award by Ontario By Bike for the Niagara Region.
