Itinerary

DAY 1, MONDAY: BEACHBURG – WESTMEATH, OTTAWA RIVER – WHITEWATER BREWERY

Welcome to beautiful Beachburg – A town of only 1000 people! After you are checked into your room, we will have an orientation of the Inn - your home for the next four nights. At 2 pm we will depart on a local ride to warm up our legs. We ride scenic roads showcasing award-winning farms. A stop in Westmeath brings us past a local candlemaker’s shop (located in an old stone church). We stop for a peek at their world-famous soya candles and pouring demonstration. Then we’re off towards the Ottawa River to view the famous big whitewater rapids of the mighty Ottawa and hear the story of the log drive and how the huge white pine timbers were brought down the river to eventually Montreal then shipped to Europe for ship making.

We’ll stop into the Whitewater Brewery for a break and tour of their unique facility that was once a dairy barn. We continue back to Beachburg and enjoy a beautiful welcome dinner. Meals (D). Riding Distance 28km

DAY 2, TUESDAY: PONTIAC DAY – PPJ RAILBED TRAIL, CHUTES COULONGE, RED WAGON WINERY

After a hearty breakfast, we load up into the van and cross over the interprovincial bridge to La Belle Province – Quebec, where the brave Voyageurs settled! Here we start on the PPJ rail bed trail and ride along the Ottawa River towards Fort Coulonge. A stop at the impressive Chutes des Coulonge will be made. We then continue our way to the quaint town of Shawville, where we visit the Little Red Wagon Winery for a tour and snack. Our van will be waiting for us at the winery so you can change your shoes/clothes. We return to our Inn this evening for dinner. Meals (B, L, D). Riding Distance 60km

DAY 3, WEDNESDAY: CALABOGIE PEAKS, MOUNT SAINT PATRICK, HOLY WELL, EAGLES NEST

Today after breakfast we depart by van to Calabogie. We will ride an amazing loop passing by old forests and farms with stone fences. Learn a little history today as you see what a settler was given for immigrating to Canada and what they had to fulfill to earn their 100 acres of land. We visit the Holy Well in Mount St. Patrick know to visitors for healing the wounded and sick. (You can take a little bottle of the holy water loved one). Then over the Kennelly hills back towards Calabogie. Our van will meet us at the end of our ride to change our bike shoes for hiking shoes – a wonderful view of “The Eagle’s Nest” is a short hike from the road that is a ‘must see’ in the area. Dinner will be in Calabogie this evening. Meals (B, L, D). Riding Distance: 30km. Hiking Distance: 2.5km.

DAY 4, THURSDAY: EGANVILLE – BALACLAVA – DOUGLAS – BONNECHERE CAVES

Today our ride takes us to the Eganville area of the Ottawa Valley. We drive the historical Opeongo Line en route, a road that was one of the ‘highways’ of Canada where many settlers from the UK, Germany and Poland were given free land for immigrating to Canada. We park at the Bonnechere Caves and head out to explore some very quiet and scenic roads. We go past the old Ghost Town of Balaclava where we see the remains of an old mill and several abandoned old homes. Then on through the little town of Douglas – most famous for their yearly St. Patrick’s Day parade (Over 2000 people come to watch in a town of 200).

We will stop in at the little tavern for a visit with the friendly owners before returning to the Caves where we have a private tour. Feel free to have a swim in the Bonnechere River and jump or sit in the moving whitewater. This evening we will share a special BBQ dinner and weather permitting have an outdoor garden party. Meals (B, L, D). Riding Distance: 40km

DAY 5: FRIDAY: DEPARTURE

After breakfast, we sadly say good-bye. Perhaps you would like to stay in the area and visit some other attractions or try whitewater rafting or a day of fly fishing? We can certainly help with other travel arrangements or activities in the area. Meals (B).
