Our most versatile and flexible tour with a little taste of this and a little taste of that. The experience begins in the charming town of Almonte (Mississippi Mills) where we will enjoy samples from the local chocolate factory and an outdoor information and tasting session at the local coffee roastery. Experienced cyclists looking for a great ride will start from here, and those with less road cycling experience will be dropped off outside of Carp – Just in time for some wine sampling! Continue along backroads and pathways, taste some award-winning sour beers, then enjoy the scenic ride to an historic mill-turned-brew pub nestled along the Ottawa River.

”Awesome opportunity to cycle routes we hadn’t before…Best part was planning had been taken care of ahead of time. Just hopped on our bikes & went at our own speed with clear directions. Would recommend to locals and visitors alike.” – Jennie A, Ottawa
