Twisties, swoops, curves, hills and dales, these are not new characters in a fabled children's book, but the only way to describe some of the best riding in Ontario -- the Ottawa Valley!
Calabogie Peaks and the Ottawa Valley has everything a rider is looking for: Sweeping, undulating, uncrowded country roads and highways punctuated by breathtaking views.
Mix in the culture, food and unique shopping opportunities along with adventure options like hiking, whitewater rafting and cave exploration and you have a destination indeed - close to Ottawa, the US border and world famous Algonquin Park.
Ride the Ontario Highlands
Some roads were made for motorcycles and there are none better than those winding through the heart of the Ontario Highlands. And it's not just us saying that; check out what the Toronto Star writes about riding through the Highlands. Calabogie Peaks is featured along the Highlands Loop, a route mapped by Ride the Highlands taking you beside the Ottawa and Rideau Rivers, along Algonquin Park, and through the towns of Calabogie and Tweed. See for yourself why we're located in one of the best motorcyle routes in Ontario and how to plan for your ride through Ontario's Highlands.

The Champlain Route - North Bay to Ottawa
An historic route to Canada's capitol Lunch at Average Joe’s Restaurant in North Bay, Ontario was anything but average. From here, we would ride to Ottawa, following the route fur-traders and explorers used four-hundred years ago, well before any Europeans settlements existed in this “new” land. The vista from the lakeside patio called to mind images of how this land must have appeared in those times and the resilient characters who tried to tame it. We too were on an adventure and following the same route, albeit our adventure was of a very different nature.
