Canada - Oxford Rural Road Ride (2019)

CANADA: Oxford Rural Road Ride Ontario By Bike September Ride 1 night's accommodation (double occupancy) Saturday September 28th and Sunday September 29th Included 1 night's accommodation with breakfast and 2 lunches, luggage transfer, snack and water stop, wonderful group social, group ride option and detailed maps for those that do not want to ride with a group and booking fee included too. Schedule: Tour departs at 9:30am from Woodstock Star/End location - Woodstock District Community Complex, 381 Finkle St Woodstock, Ontario. This is considered a moderate level tour with the route almost entirely on paved roads. Roads selected are designated bike routes, primarily on quiet rural roadways with limited paved shoulders. Participants should be comfortable riding on roads with traffic, however traffic volumes are low on most of the roads. Suitable for road bikes of all kinds, hybrid as well as cross or gravel bikes. Day 1: Woodstock to Ingersoll - 84 km Depart from Woodstock and quickly enter the rural heartland of Ontario's southwest. Enjoy cycling past horse farms and across small creeks before arriving in the village of Tavistock. Pop into Quehl's for some famous baked goods, before rolling south along more smooth rural roads with an endless horizon of farmlands, Tree-lined stretches will make this afternoon ride in late fall truly picturesque! Pedal into the town of Ingersoll and end the day one checking out shops or enjoying a patio post-ride. Day 2: Ingersoll to Woodstock - 81 km. When riding south in the morning, be sure to make the most of this ride by stopping off at country markets and unique country stores before heading into Tillsonburg for lunch. This farming town is filled with unique attractions, bakeries and other fun places to visit. The afternoon route will present opportunities to explore flower farms and the villages of Otterville, Norwich and Burgessville just off the route. The final stretch north brings riders back into Woodstock and past Roth Park and Pittock Conservation Area, a stunning natural attraction less than 1km from the start/end location of this tour. Oxford County, the Dairy Capital of Canada, is gaining a reputation as one of the best destinations in Ontario for road cycling. Experience it for yourself on a two-day recreational road tour around Oxford County. Flat, quiet, and well-paved roads will take cyclists past rural landscapes broken up only by quaint small towns and villages. Home to the Cheese Trail, this tour will showcase the unique heritage, natural and culinary attractions of Oxford County the best way we know how, by the seat of a bike!
