    As an avid cyclist, one of my favourite pastimes is finding the next country to line with my bike trails. Having ridden the meandering rocky trails in the mountain tops of Switzerland, and the sandy paths of Brazil’s seaside villages, my hunger for more was barely containable. I recently did a Canada tour including Gulf Islands, Niagara-on-the-Lake to Fort Erie, Blueberry Route, Eastern Townships bike ride, and The Cabot Trail bike ride.
