If you’re a cycling enthusiast, a wonderful place to take residence is the City of Burlington. From the shoreline of Lake Ontario up to the foothills of the Escarpment, Burlington provides opportunities for cyclists like nowhere else in Halton Region. The Burlington Cycling Committee, established in 1990, oversees, advises and supports the sport in the city.
Numerous parks and trails are dotted all along Lake Ontario right across the city. Burloak Park, Paletta Park and Spencer Smith Park all provide the perfect place to get away for a relaxing ride on a hectic day. There is nothing more picturesque than a bike ride along Lakeshore Road in the springtime!

Downtown Burlington is a fantastic place to take the whole family for a joy ride on two wheels. Begin at Spencer Smith Park and hop on the Waterfront Trail, which takes cyclists all along the shoreline with a number of interesting sights along the way. Stop for a dip in the lake, grab some fish and chips at Hutch’s or relax at Beachway Park.
On the outskirts of the city, cyclists will discover an entire network of conservation areas, beaches and heritage sites. Mountain bikers and cyclists can also be found circling Halton Conservation’s Kelso Park, well known for its picturesque trails.
As the Burlington Cycling Committee nears its 30-year anniversary, it’s a great time to get out and discover Burlington by bike!
