There you can find hills around the escarpment, quality roads, plenty of flat terrain, and certainly beautiful scenery. There is no GO transit to Niagara, however, which means the difficult part is getting there. Enter"

"Forget the snow, it's time to start planning your summer of cycling. The Toronto–Niagara Bike Train will be returning this year with an expanded schedule, more travel options, and some getaway package deals. Building on last summer's successful pilot program which saw dozens of cyclists and their bikes riding the train between Toronto and Niagara Falls on each of four weekends, the 2008 edition of the Bike Train spans eight weekends from late June through the end of September. The September trips should be popular thanks to events like the Niagara Wine Festival."
