Iroquois is one of three overnight stops for the Great Waterfront Trail Adventure which started Monday at Brighton.
Over 120 cyclists will roll into the Iroquois Campground August 14, for an overnight stay.
This is the first time South Dundas has hosted the Great Waterfront Trail campers.
The Great Waterfront Trail adventure is a cycling getaway along Ontario’s Waterfront Trail, a 1,400 signed route along Ontario’s Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River.
The trail highlights many cycling tourism destinations in the province and puts local communities on the map for tourists looking to explore the region.
“Cycling tourism is growing in popularity because of its great health benefits and scenic travel opportunities,” said Anna Halkidis, manager of operations for CAA South Central Region, which is supporting the ride. She is also participating.
This five day tour will take the cyclists from Brighton to Cornwall.
The final day of the trip starts in Iroquois and ends in Cornwall.
Marlaine Koehler, executive director of the Waterfront Regeneration Trust is pleased that CAA chooses to host this type of vacation along Ontario’s Waterfront Trail.
“This speaks volumes to the quality of experience that we offer in our own backyard and the growing opportunity for local communities to tap into the international cycle tourism market,” she said in an August 11, media release.
During this trip, overnight stays are at Picton, Kingston, Gananoque and Iroquois.
