Particpants in the Stanhope Heritage Cycling Tour - range in age from 4 to 74 or more

This is a leisurely guided "Bicycle Ramble" for the curious cyclist of any age or ability. Starts at 10 am. It's an easy 10 km loop beginning and ending at Buttermilk Falls picnic area.

The tour includes lots of stops to explore pioneer history and scenic natural settings. The route is fairly flat and shady, following quiet backroads. It's perfect for novice or lapsed cyclists. It's a Sunday Ramble on two wheels with lots of time to enjoy the surroundings.
 
Friends of the Rail Trail (FoRT) discovered this little gem of a cycling loop years agoand it's become a favourite. The unique outing fulfills FoRT's mandate to offer free public programming focusing on history, nature and appreciation of greenspace. In past years - pre-pandemic - an Après picnic beside the rapids was a welcome feature. Due to COVID-19, there will be no group picnic in 2021, but feel free to organize one with your household. There is a footpath beside the outflow of Buttermilk Falls.

What to bring: your bicycle, helmet, water, snacks, picnic lunch, bugspray, sunscreen, camera - most importantly your curiosity and enthusiasm!

Pre-registartion is essential. Stanhope Heritage Cycling Tour is Free - Optional memberships to FoRT are available at $12 per adult - children in the same household are included.
