America by Bicycle
proudly offers the Great Lakes Tour - Erie
beginning in 2012. This is an amazing 8 day, 566 mile, circumferential tour of Lake Erie.
This tour begins and ends by one of the world�s most magnificent natural wonders - Niagara Falls. First we
circumnavigate Lake Erie by riding along the Welland Canal to Port Colborne, where you may see a huge �laker� bound for Lake Ontario,
points further east or bound for Lake Erie and points as far west as Lake Superior. Heading west, we ride into the town of Port Dover
on our way to Simcoe. This tour has two one hundred mile days, one of which finds us riding into Leamington, Ontario, the home of Heinz
Ketchup. The following day we �rest� aboard the Pelee Island ferry as it takes us on a scenic cruise across Lake Erie to Sandusky Ohio.
As the ferry arrives in Sandusky, you catch a breathtaking, lakeside view of one of the best rollercoaster parks in USA, Cedar Point,
which may be the place you choose to end your day. As the adventure continues, you head east toward Cleveland, where you will ride
along the waterfront, seeing sights; Cleveland Brown Stadium and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame before cycling on to Mentor, Ohio.
Continuing on past small marinas, we head toward Erie PA and then the city of Dunkirk, NY. We complete the Lake Erie journey by riding
into Buffalo, NY before crossing back into Canada for a ride along the scenic Niagara River as we head back to Niagara Falls to wrap up
our wonderful ride.
