Excursions

Our Excursion trips pack four days of riding excitement into an extended weekend. These rides are suitable for all road-legal bikes, from dual purpose to touring, but they will be run at a spirited pace with daily distance in the 500 km range. You must feel comfortable riding this distance daily. We'll be taking adequate breaks for coffee/lunch/gas along the way as well as stops at points of interest. Each night, we'll be staying in motels/inns, and will make dinner reservations for the group. Relaxing over a good meal with new friends and recounting the day's experiences is a great way to end every day.

For 2022, Canada Rides is pleased to present three options for our four-day excursions. Our Four-Day Excursions are available in June/July/August/September. Click here to be notified when trip dates become available. 

 

4 Day Ontario
If there's a curvy “motorcycle road” in Central, or Southeastern Ontario, odds are you'll be riding it on this trip. Except for short stretches on Highway 11 on Days 1 & 2, the route is mainly on secondary paved roads. Running through Ontario's Cottage Country, the Algonquin Highlands, and the Ottawa valley, the scenery is as diverse and beautiful as the riding experience. The price of the four-day Ontario excursion is $300/rider, $400/2up. Dates: June 3-6, 2022

4 Day Quebec
One of the advantages of riding to the Laurentides in Quebec from Canada Rides HQ is that you also get to experience some great roads in Ontario, both outbound and inbound. With no major highways included, the route is run exclusively on secondary paved roads. Traversing central and southeastern Ontario before jumping into La Belle Province, you'll experience a variety of scenery and roads as we wind along on our adventure. 
The price of the four-day Quebec excursion is $300/rider, $400/2up. 

4 Day Northern Ontario
For those of you who have never motorcycled into Northern Ontario, this is a “must-do” trip. At 4 days, this will give you just a taste of what's available; you're sure to want to return to explore further. There will be some travel on Highways 400, 69, and 17, so you need to be comfortable riding in formation on major highways. 
The price of the four-day Northern Ontario excursion is $300/rider, $400/2up. Dates: July 8-11, 2022

All overnights will be in motels or at private locations, no camping.

  • We organize all routes from beginning to end, so you just show up at our meeting point and ride!  

  • Providing you with tips and hints ahead of time on things to pack, helping you prepare for this epic adventure
