Cycling at the 2022 Lakes and Trails Festival

Cycling will again be a main activity at this year’s Lakes and Trials Festival, July 16 , 2022.

The Around-the-Lake bike, a 21-kilometre route on an off-road trial and low speed country roads, will circle Sydenham Lake.  Guides will lead the group. It is a Festival favourite.

The Family-Cycle, an 8-kilometre route on a flat off-road trial bedside Sydenham Lake, is a  great opportunity for families, and new cyclists to enjoy the Cataraqui Trail, scenic Sydenham Lake and find their cycling legs.  Two experienced guides will go with the group.

Maps for longer bike routes, suitable  for more experienced cyclists, will be  available at the Festival.

Get your bike tuned up by a professional bike mechanic at a Tune-Up Clinic run by Cycle Kingston. The Clinic provides a valuable service , getting your bike running smoothly, and raises money for Gear-Up a social enterprise to train youth in the skills and business of cycling. There is a suggested donation for this service of $30.
