Itinerary

North of Superior

This scenic section begins in Winnipeg, considered to be the geographic centre of Canada. While the first couple of days riding will take place on the boundless prairie, the landscape will soon begin to change as the cyclists approach the ancient Canadian Shield. Once they cross the border into the province of Ontario, lakes will begin to appear surrounded by an immense boreal forest. A rest day in Fort Francis will give the riders an opportunity to test out their abilities in that most Canadian of watercraft, the canoe.

A couple of riding days later the riders will spin into Thunder Bay, home to the Sleeping Giant, Nanabijou. From there the route hugs the rugged coast of lake Superior. Known in the Ojibwe language as Gitche Gumee, the lake is by surface area, the largest lake in the world and is legendary for its unpredictable weather. Even in summer the average water temperature is 2C, ensuring that sweaty riders will enjoy a very refreshing dip. The route continues past the famous statue of a Canada Goose in Wawa before coming to an end in Sault Ste Marie.
