About Cottage Country

Welcome to cycling in Algonquin Park, the Almaguin Highlands, Loring-Restoule, Muskoka and Parry Sound. 

Known as an iconic four-season vacation destination in the wilderness north of Toronto, across this region you’ll find great routes for touring and training, and hot spots for mountain and fat biking too.  It’s an unforgettable place to “tour, train and trek all year long” – and one that you’re bound to return to time and again once you check out the bike scene here.

With Algonquin Park, Almaguin, Loring-Restoule, Muskoka and Parry Sound within its borders, in cottage country you’ll find thousands of sparkling lakes (literally everywhere you turn), lush forests, and the rugged granite of the Canadian Shield.  You’ll enjoy varied elevation as well, including flats, rolling hills and significant highlands, and plenty of looping routes to keep you exploring. No matter how hardcore you are – whether a seasoned road warrior or looking for rentals for leisurely rides, BikeCottageCountry.ca will connect you with fellow travellers and local experts to make your next biking adventure in Ontario’s cottage country the best it can be.

Be sure most of all to visit the “Bike Blog” section of this site for ongoing intel on what’s happening in these parts.

See you on the bike!
