We are Southern Ontario’s Outdoor Adventure Company, offering cycling, paddling & hiking adventures across South Central Ontario since 1997. After successful years as a paddle tour operation, Grand Experiences expanded in 2002 as we began bike rentals, by 2005 guided cycling experiences were offered by trained facilitators. Since then our cycling tours have taken off! We offer cycling adventures in unique areas: The Heart of Ontario, Mennonite Country, The Green Belt, and Ontario’s South Coast. Our tours include riding on the major TransCanada Trail, but our knowledge and experience allows our facilitators to take you down unique local trails & backroads to/from St. Jacobs, Cambridge, Hamilton, Brantford, Paris, and Port Dover! Looking for more? We also offer “Pedal/Paddle Trips” with 1/2 day canoe/kayak & 1/2 day cycling! These have always been popular as they are a great way to experience a new area, or reconnect with a familiar spot. From Self-guided rentals to 2 day all-inclusive packages – we offer it all! Be sure to check out our “Path Less Travelled” which is an Ontario Signature Experience – a title held for Ontario’s top tourism experiences! As many of us have discovered, great adventures are greatly influenced by experiences. Our experienced interpretative cycling guides will lead you to amazing grand experiences. Our tours run from the Niagara Escarpment, the Grand River & its tributaries, & the trails of St. Jacobs Country to Long Point on Lake Erie. 2 world Biospheres, and a Canadian Heritage River!
Whether you have your own bike or need to rent one, we can plan, organize, and guide you on your next road, gravel, or mountain bike adventure in the Madawaska and Bonnechere Valleys. A certified NCCP community cycling coach, Robert is an accomplished cyclist and racer in road, gravel, cyclocross, mountain bike, and track disciplines. A father, artist-educator, theatre artist, photographer, and filmmaker, Robert divides his time between the quiet roads and beautiful vistas of the Ottawa Valley with the hustle and bustle of the Greater Toronto Area. He prides himself on being a friendly, personable, and enthusiastic riding partner, and will show you all of the gems that the Madawaska and Bonnechere Valleys have to offer, including quiet roads, hidden waterfalls and streams, along with beautiful hiking spots and remote beaches for swimming after a ride. With his camera in hand, Robert is sure to take many photographs of you on your bike, and you’ll be sure to have stellar photographic mementos of you enjoying your cycling adventure in the Ottawa Valley. Apart from our guided tours, Madawaska Valley Cycling also has informal local club rides that meet multiple times a week during the summer to ride road and gravel routes out of Barry’s Bay, Wilno, and Killaloe. Distances are usually around 100 km or more and average 30 km/h, depending on the terrain and surface. If you are newer to riding or looking to improve your technique, ask MVC about riding clinics to improve your skills and confidence while riding solo or in a peloton.
