Niagara Cycling Tours (NCT) is pleased to announce our recent Award from the Ontario By Bike organization. As the cycling season gets going in full with warmer ride temperatures and summer ahead, Ontario By Bike announces the 23 best bicycle friendly businesses and award winners for 2022, across the province.
Whether riding closer to home, or travelling to destinations across Ontario, exploring Ontario’s vast array of trails and road routes, coupled with a stop at any one of these award winning locations to eat, visit or sleep, will be a highlight of any bike outing, day trip or longer multi-day tour.
The awards are presented by Ontario By Bike, whose certification program has criteria that helps ensure cyclists are welcomed at businesses they choose to stop at whether it be as a cycle tourist, on a longer trip, or while biking closer to home. The Network is free for businesses to participate in and the information on each location plus cycling trails and road routes in each region is easily accessible online.
“We are pleased to celebrate and recognize the commitment and level of service that these 23 bicycle friendly businesses offer cyclists that stop at their locations. With many welcoming a wide array of customers, not just cyclists, we encourage a visit to their businesses to support their ongoing enterprises during what has been a challenging few years. Congratulations to all winners of the annual awards, now in its fourth year.” - Louisa Mursell, Executive Director of Ontario By Bike/Transportation Options.
“Our team is stoked to win this award we’re just too busy planning trips this summer and fall to celebrate right now” says Founder and avid cyclist, Peter Donato.
