A Cyclist’s Weekend Haven in Uxbridge

Content sponsored by York Durham Headwaters

Load up the bikes for a full weekend adventure in the Trail Capital of Canada. Book in at the Trailside Bed and Breakfast, where your hosts Bob and Sue will treat you to the best hot cooked breakfast in the area. You can start your day with a ride right out the backdoor along the Trestle Bridge Trail and into Historic Downtown Uxbridge.

Enjoy a latte at Nexus and then hit the road or the trails to take in the fresh country air.  You can even explore some amazing art installations along the way.  Just log into discoveruxbridge.ca/art-tour and chose one of the cycling tours.  You can embark on a journey north for a 20 km ride with three stops along the way or, if you prefer a trail adventure,  embark on a ride south through the Countryside Preserve, where you can take in the beautiful hillside setting and pass a few nature-inspired paintings along the way.

After working up an appetite on the bike paths, grab a quick lunch at The Bar Café, which has something for everyone including local organic, gluten-free, and vegetarian options. Or, if you feel like a full service sit-down lunch, Navarra’s Eatery, one of Uxbridge’s premier breakfast and lunch spots, offers a delicious menu made with locally grown foods from A Pretty Good Farm and Pefferlaw Creek Farms.

Following a long day of riding relax with dinner at The Tin Mill, an old mill and tannery, you can hear the story of the historic mill while diing on the spacious patio. Finish off your day with a craft beer and live music at the Second Wedge Brewing Co. or by catching a film at The Roxy Theatres – a great place to enjoy some buttered popcorn in a comfortable environment reminiscent of days gone past with movie nostalgia and state-of-the-art digital sound.
