Spring is finally showing its warmth in Niagara. The daffodils and magnolias are now blooming while workers in the vineyards prune before budbreak. Cyclists have begun to invade our great rural routes and paths throughout the region.
Steve Bauer Bike Tours is also experiencing spring fever in the office as we have received many requests for custom and corporate tours of the Niagara region. After more than 15 years we continue to offer unparallel cycling tours of the wine region and customise our routes to suit the groups ability. Easy, cruising vineyard rides near Niagara-on-the-Lakeor more challenging terrain on the Niagara escarpment may be designed to satisfy each group’s requirements.
During all these years operating bike tours, the number of wineries in the region have doubled, reaching over 80 wineries. The large diversification in grape varietals and vinification methods is producing quality wines which will please the connaisseurs. In addition to wineries a new trend of a few micro breweries is emerging.
NEW in MAY - BIKE RENTAL
Beginning in May, Steve Bauer Bike Tours will have road specific bicycles available for rent on request basis. Contact us to book and arrange your ride.
Since the begining of April, Steve Bauer has officially begun the position of Head Coach at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre scheduled to open this fall. Steve is working diligently with a small team at the town of Milton to develop the Milton Cycling Academy which will offer structured training programs at the Velodrome.
As Steve never seems to get enough challenges, he has hit the local and long lasting Good Friday Road Race (Ontario Cup #2) and the Paris to Ancaster Spring Classic last weekends. So don't be surprised to see the old boy next to you at the start line this season.
