Postponed - Spokes and Spigots Niagara Bike Tour - Join Jim and Jannette for our annual outing to wine country!
Due to health and safety concerns related to the extreme heat alert forecast for tomorrow, we have decided to postpone our annual Spokes and Spigots Winery Bike Tour. As you can appreciate, when we choose dates in advance for any outdoor activity, we are at the mercy of the weather. We regret the inconvenience, but our collective well-being must be the priority.

As you know from the notes to both the original tour notice and the recent update and reminder, our alternate date is Saturday, August 6th. We have rescheduled the included winery tour and the cheese tasting to that date. If you cannot make the alternate date of Saturday, August 6th, please let us know. For those of you who have already paid the registration fee and cannot make this alternate date, we will return your fee.

Thank you for your understanding.

Jim & Jannette

We'll be taking our bikes on the GO Train (special bike excursion cars) to St. Catharines and then doing a moderately-paced bike tour to visit 3-4 wineries, including a stop for a picnic lunch before returning to St. Catharines for 6:00 p.m. The full flyer is available here.

This tour is mainly on paved secondary roads and includes three uphill slopes (these can be walked if need be), so all that is required is any multi-speed bicycle (road, touring, mountain, or hybrid style) in good working order, a bike helmet, bike lock, and a pannier or backpack for your food and drink, and for anything that you may buy along the way. A water bottle and sunscreen are highly recommended.

Beyond the GO Train ticket cost, there is a $10 registration fee payable in advance before July 8th for the bicycle tour itself. But if you participate in the tour, that fee is fully refunded to you. And, of course, if you want to indulge in any winery tours or tastings, each winery levies its own charge.

There are fourteen (14) spots currently available. If you are interested in this trip, please e-mail Jim and Jannette at Turn on JavaScript! or give them a call at 416-921-7737. Hope you can join us!
