Tour de Greenbelt 2010

The 3rd annual Tour de Greenbelt was held on September 11-12, 2010 in Niagara region, September 25 in York region, and September 26 in Durham region.

This year, I toured the 45 km route on Day 1, and the 100 km route on Day 4.

Day 1 started and ended at Henry of Pelham Winery in St. Catharines. It featured rest stops at Balls Falls, Uncle Porky’s Farm, Ridgepoint Winery, and Whitty Farms:

There was free wine tasting at Ridgepoint, and of course live entertainment and local food back at Henry of Pelham!

Day 4 was a chilly ride that started and ended at Elgin Park in Uxbridge. Lots of rolling hills make this a challenging ride, so only a handful of people took on the century route. The lack of wind was a welcome relief though!

Featured rest stops include Annina’s Bake Shop (delicious tarts!), Siloam Orchards apple farm, Coopers Farm (pumpkins and turkeys abound), and a Garden Artifacts place.
