    The Niagara River Recreation Trail is a paved path for non-motorized traffic stretching some 53 kilometers (35 miles) along the Canadian side of the Niagara River. That's about as beginner / family friendly as you can get.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    There's a ton of relatively fun rail trail in Hamilton and in the Niagara Region, check out the Friendship Trail. It's dead-straight but it connects Fort Erie and Port Colborne - really nice!
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    Here is links to lots of great maps for bike routes and trails.

    If you ride the Freindship Trail Check out the Smokin Buddha. They are bike friendly and great friends of the SHCC.

    If you want to get off the trails and onto dirt drop us a line and we will get you hooked up.

    The link to the Hamilton Cycling Map seems boken, so I'll post it here. I've found this map very helpful while exploring the Hamilton area. It shows a bunch of rail trail. Also, the Dundas Valley has some MTB trails that are fairly hilly, but technically very easy.

    The Hamilton to Brantford rail trail is flat, un-paved, and plenty long.
