Join the Niagara Freewheelers for a three-day cycling adventure to explore the picturesque countryside around Kingston. Located on the eastern end of Lake Ontario, at the mouth of the Cataraqui and St. Lawrence Rivers, Kingston is nicknamed the “Limestone City” because of its grand 19th-century buildings and many heritage buildings constructed using local limestone. The grand house and gardens of the Bellevue House National Historic Site commemorate Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald. The Thousands Island tourist region is nearby to the east. There are many options for everyone to explore.
