DAY 1

Parry Sounds and 30,000 Islands 

We will drive you to Parry Sound, a small town in the UNESCO Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve.  Explore the town's shops, harbour and heritage. Get your first glimpse of the stunning 30,000 Islands, and then hop on the bikes to explore further and ride into Muskoka for our first of two lakeside nights at Sherwood Inn. 
Included: Lunch, Snacks, Dinner
Distance:  50 km (30 miles)

DAY 2

Rosseau Lake Loop 

Today’s ride is hilly with several short steep climbs and one long, gentle slope of approximately 4 kilometres. Begin by winding north with Lake Joseph to the west and Lake Rosseau to the east, through Port Sandfield and Minett before looping around the top of the lake for a coffee stop in Rosseau village. Next head south on the east side of Lake Rosseau, and end in Port Carling, the “hub of the lakes” at the junction of Lakes Rosseau and Lake Muskoka. Lunch on a lakeside patio, then back for a second delightful night at Sherwood Inn.
Included: Breakfast, Snacks, Lunch, Dinner
Distance:  68 km (42 miles)

DAY 3

Torrance to Port Severn 

 Day 3 is a challenging day of 120km, or you can take a bump along the way to make the ride ~80km. We begin with a very short van transfer to Torrance. The route includes Torrance Barrens Dark-Sky Preserve (albeit by daylight), Sparrow Lake, and the Big Chute Marine Railway (an inclined marine railway that carries boats up and down 18 vertical metres, the only one of its kind still in use in North America). We end the day by returning to Georgian Bay at Port Severn, where the Trent-Severn Waterway ends. We will dine and sleep at Rawley Resort
Included: Breakfast, Snacks, Lunch, Dinner
Distance:  120 km (75 miles)

DAY 4

Port Severn to Honey Harbour

An easier out and back ride on Day 4 - we will ride north to Honey Harbour and visit Georgian Bay Islands National Park. This is the southern end of the 30,000 Islands that we first viewed in Parry Sound, and the park protects 63 islands within the world's largest freshwater archipelago. We will take a boat-ride to visit Beausoleil Island, explore and swim, and then return by boat and bike back to Rawley Resort.
Included: Breakfast, Snacks, Lunch, Dinner
Distance:  50 km (30 miles)

DAY 5

Port Severn to Collingwood 

The scenery changes again today as the trek along Southern Georgian Bay begins. Cycle from Port Severn to Waubashene and join the paved and car-free Tay Shore Trail. Pass cottages, marinas, parks, wetlands, and have frequent views of Georgian Bay.  Sainte-Marie among the Hurons and the Martyr’s Shrine are along the trail.  After a coffee break in Midland, take country roads to Balm Beach and Wasaga Beach, the world’s longest freshwater beach, and then we end the day in Collingwood. Guests are on their own this evening to explore the shopping and dining in Blue Mountain Village. 
Included: Breakfast, Snacks, Lunch
Distance:  78 km (41 miles)

DAY 6

Collingwood -Blue Mountains Loop

There are numerous possible rides around Collingwood and the Blue Mountains. Depending on wind direction, the state of our legs, and group consensus, we may choose to loop towards the village of Creemore, or head into Grey County and the town of Thornbury.  Whichever direction we choose there are quaint villages, challenging climbs, and stunning views of Georgian Bay. This is our last day - we will wrap up the riding early so that you have a chance to do some shopping and site-seeing before we drive back to Orillia to say our good-byes.
Included: Breakfast, Snacks, Lunch
Distance:  60 km (37 miles)

"We had a great time- perfect biking weather, a route that took us through many highlights of the region and first class accommodations.  But the best part of the tour was the guides... We were given the royal treatment with Humdinger Bicycle Tours and hope to travel with you again in the future."  Guest message summer 2019
