Cycling on Pelee, Island
Location: Leamington, Ontario Surface: mostly hard-packed gravel Distance: 30+ km Washrooms/Water: No Signage: Yes
Pelee Island is a 90-minute ferry ride from Leamington, Ontario and costs about $10 each way, including your bike. While on the ferry pick up a map of the island.
Pelee Island is the most southerly inhabited area in Canada. From the ferry terminal, there is only one road and you can go left or right. It is 6 of one and ½ dozen the other!
I would say that approximately 75%!o(MISSING)f the roads on the island are hard-packed gravel and suitable for a bike with hybrid tires. There are NO hills.
Every intersection is well marked with a bike symbol and Waterfront trail
sign. Around the island is approximately 30 km depending on which route or side roads you take.
There are no bathrooms, no water, and one bench.
There are small beaches on the East side but on a hot July day, only biting flies were enjoying the beach! A lot of the beachfront on
the east side is private.
The island is primarily agricultural with large fields of soybeans and some wheat and corn.
On the western side near the ferry terminal there are a few restaurants and nearby is the Pelee Island winery.
This can be a very enjoyable day, spent exploring this unique island. More Photos Below…..
