It’s official – spring is here! Yes, it’s April 1, but I’m not fooling around.

Now that temperatures are rising, I’m excited about the months ahead – and exploring The Great Trail of Canada on two wheels! This month, I’m reading about a cross-Canada cyclist who discovered some much-needed peace along the Trail in Ontario. I’m also looking west to Saskatoon’s beautiful Meewasin Trail for vacation ideas.

I’m including some inspiring words from Indigenous athlete and cyclist Adrian Alphonso, a Trails Manitoba board member and passionate advocate for inclusivity and “getting everyone to the trailhead”.

Cycling in the City of Bridges on the Meewasin Trail
 
Ask any local: the best way to experience Saskatoon – including the downtown core, the many parks, and numerous attractions along the river – is a bike ride along the super-scenic Meewasin Trail.

“Whether I’m in Charlevoix or on a trestle in B.C., the Trail section I am on is my favourite section of The Great Trail.”
 
WATCH: Adrian Alphonso, Trail Hero
 
Adrian Alphonso is an emblematic Canadian. With both Indigenous and immigrant roots, the Winnipeg cyclist – designated Minwaadizi-Makwa in Ojibwe – is a key figure in Winnipeg’s cycling community.
