Why not leave your car at the train station or at home, and go by the Niagara Excursion Express for our ride today. Go runs from Oshawa to Union Station. The Niagara Excursion Express runs from Union Station to Burlington along the Lakeshore Line to St. Catharines VIA station.
Our bicycle trip starts at St. Catharines VIA station, and we will cycle north through St Catharines to the Waterfront trail along the paved roads to Port Dalhousie, and follow new bike lanes through St. Catharines to the Welland Canal trail. We will cycle to Lock 3 for lunch and washroom break. At Lock 3 is the viewing platform of the ships rising or descending. There is a Welland Canal Musuem, gift shop and light snacks and cold drinks. After lunch we wil proceed to the top of hill at Lock 7 and onto the bike ferry at Port Robinson to cross the canal. We will continue along the country roads to Chippewa at Tim Hortons for another washroom break. At this point, the group could split into two parts. One group will continue riding into Niagara Falls for sightseeing, and other can ride the Niagara Parkway or path for extended mileage. If everyone is in agreement will meet together at Vinnie Zuchinnis for dinner at 5 pm.. Departure from Niagara after dinner is at 7:20 pm. Purchasing round trip ticket saves standing in ticket line for the return trip. We hope to see you on our trip, but keep in mind space is limited. If you have a Presto card, you can use it to tap on at your point of origin, and tap off at St Catharines, and then tap on at Niagara falls, its better than tickets.
