It turns out the road to happiness is paved with bends and twists, ascents and descents – and some of the most stunning scenery in Canada. What makes Explorer’s Edge so popular for motorcycle touring is the changing landscape and challenging terrain. One minute you’re on a flat zipping past some ancient rock outcrops, the next you’re navigating a winding downhill towards a blue sky-tinted lake. (And with thousands of lakes in the region to tour around, any route you take is guaranteed to have you utter the word “breathtaking” – even you guys’ guys out there.)
The fact that the regional highways are in good shape and link to each other in a series of loops makes for easy navigating, and there is always time to dine, shop or take a dip at one of the area’s many public beaches along the way. Major highways also connect to the coastal routes on Georgian Bay to the west, and Algonquin Provincial Park to the northeast.
From the arrival of spring’s first warm, sunny day until the last maple leaf drops off its tree in autumn, motorcyclists are out on the roads in droves. And at day’s end, at any given hotel or motel in the area, you’re sure to see a group of bikes parked in a row, ready to carry their riders to tomorrow’s next great scenic adventure.
