GEORGIAN BAY CYCLING ROUTE, (GBCyR) CORE A
Take #6 south off the Trans Canada Highway. Beyond Espanola enjoy the training hills through the beautiful La Cloche Mountains. Take time to walk the docks in Little Current and enjoy the many boats on the North Channel. Heading south on #6, no paved shoulders yet from Little Current to Ten Mile Point (13km), but you can look forward to visiting the historic village of Sheguiandah. It offers a wonderful museum with archeological artifacts and Batman's Mill.
Continue on #6, or choose GBCyR Core B (see below), climb a 2 km hill to a lookout with an unsurpassed view of the North Channel, Georgian Bay and the La Cloche Mountains. Continue south on wide paved shoulders to Manitowaning, the oldest white settlement on the Island. Here you can visit the great local museum, see the old Norisle Ferry down by the Old Mill and catch a bite to eat. Back on #6, ride south all the way to the ferry dock in South Baymouth.
