Burlington to Burlington Bay

Burlington’s waterfront is easily reached from the GO Train up Brant St., by cyclists of all ages. Cycle past the beaches and dunes of Burlington Bay at the west end of Lake Ontario – before you know it across a causeway to Hamilton’s shore. The ride includes great bike lanes and wide trails, a lift bridge, historical neighbourhoods, and a light house!
