Log-in to discoveruxbridge.ca/art-tour and chose your tour. 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 lots of local organic, gluten-free, and vegetarian. 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 lunch menu made with locally grown foods from A Pretty Good Farm and Pefferlaw Creek.
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 or by catching a film at The Roxy Theatres, have some great popcorn with real butter in a comfortable environment reminiscent of days gone past with movie nostalgia surrounding them but still with state-of-the-art digital sound.
