    Hi,
    I am seeking a bicycle partner.
    My intentions are:

    To ride 1,000 km around Lake Ontario (or maybe Erie canal -to be decided).

    When? ideally in July 2009

    Who? female + other female

    How Much $? plan to stay in B&B or budget hotels.

    Distances per day: looking at between 80 to 90 Km per day during 5 or six days.

    Where? Starting point: Toronto - via Kingston - Oswego, Rochester, Niagara Falls and back to Toronto.

    Hope you find a cycling partner for your trip. I was trying to figure out the background in avatar: I lived in Toronto for over 20 yrs. (did cycling there too).

    Are you taking the waterfront bike route east towards Kingston? We've done different trips for that piece. Prince Edward County area (Brighton, approx. 135 kms. from Toronto, etc.) is lovely. It is strange to see dairy cattle by Lake Ontario after leaving the Toronto, Pickering, etc.

    We have also done several self-loaded different bike trips to from Toronto to Fort Erie, with stayover in Niagara-on-Lake in summer and fall. (For those unaware, it's approx. 120 kms. 1 way to Niagara-on-the-Lake + additional 25 kms. to Fort Erie, ON, right by the Canada-U.S. border. As you might now there is a campground near Port Dalhousie by the bike route there. But make sure you book many wks. in advance. It's heavily used by RV travellers.

    So haven't gone all the way around Lake Ontario. I've heard interesting stuff on the U.S. system by using routes close to the canals. My partner did cycle on that side (or was it Lake Erie?) into New York State.

    We always stayed in Niagara-on-Lake, not in the circus zoo of city of Niagara Falls. After all, you are in Ontario wine country (which is why cycling to Fort Erie is nice also with some wineries along the way).

    On my lst bike ride to area after I saw Niagara Falls downtown area... And I'm not talking about the natural wonders of the Horseshoe Falls, etc.
