Big Bay Pebble Beach

Dickson Bou, of N Plus One Cycle Shop in London, Ontario, and artist, Heather Carey on a Bruce Peninsula trip – a four day loop starting and ending in Owen Sound.

We rode along the coast up to Cypress Lake and camped every night in Provincial, National and private parks. We rode on mixed terrain, paved, gravel, dirt, rail trails and old fire roads. It’s a great trip and full of beautiful scenery.
