Niagara could get more bicycle traffic this summer, after showing off its spokes at the Toronto International Bicycle Show this weekend.

During the two-day event at Toronto’s Exhibition Place, Niagara Region, Niagara Parks and Niagara Cycling Tourism Centre showcased cycling opportunities in the area.

Notable points included the region’s 200 plus scenic cycling routes, which attract more than 14 million visitors each year from around the globe.

Niagara also highlighted the multitude of wineries, craft breweries, food experiences and accommodations along its cycling routes, which span across 12 communities.

The Region said it wants Niagara to become known as the most “bicycle-friendly community” in the province.

"Niagara provides cyclists with a unique opportunity to experience some of the most scenic landscapes in Canada. As an avid cyclist myself, I know firsthand that there is no better place to escape for a ride than right here in Niagara,” said Niagara Region chair Alan Caslin.
