Cornwall Cycling Showcased at the Montreal Bicycle ShowApril 26, 2022
Cornwall Ontario – Cornwall is a great place for cycling – a fact that Cornwall Tourism will be promoting at the Montreal Bicycle Show this weekend.
Running from Friday, April 29th to Sunday, May 1st at Olympic Stadium, the Montreal Bicycle Show is Canada’s largest consumer show dedicated exclusively to the world of bicycles and cycling tourism. Now in its 19th year, the show will feature over 200 exhibitors and is expected to draw tens of thousands of visitors.
“Cornwall’s Riverside Trail and cycling network is extremely popular with visitors and there is a great opportunity to attract even more tourists from Quebec and beyond,” said Kevin Lajoie, Tourism Officer with Cornwall Tourism.
The Cornwall region already welcomes a significant amount of visiting cyclists during the summer months, be it couples and families on day trips or larger group tours and special events.
“We regularly interact with visiting cyclists during the summer months at our visitor info centre. They often remark about how beautiful the waterfront is and how nice it is to cycle on our traffic-free trails,” added Mr. Lajoie.
In addition to speaking directly with cycling enthusiasts, Cornwall Tourism will be handing out copies of the recently-released 2022 Explore Cornwall Visitor Guide. The bilingual publication contains a variety of information on accommodations, events, attractions and things to see and do in the Cornwall area – including cycling.
“The new guide offers a great snapshot of all the great things there are to experience in our community,” said Amy Malyon, Tourism Coordinator with Cornwall Tourism.
Cycling maps and other resources will also be made available to consumers.

About the Cornwall’s Riverside Trail and the Waterfront Trail
Cornwall’s Riverside Trail is part of the majestic Waterfront Trail. Stretching over 3,000 km, the Waterfront Trail is a route connecting 140 communities and First Nations along the Canadian shores of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River. The trail consists of both on-road and off-road facilities.
Cornwall’s section of the Waterfront Trail is a dedicated multi-use trail that spans the entire waterfront, offering stunning views of the Cornwall Canal and St. Lawrence River – completely off-road and traffic free. The Trail connects a number of attractions including the OPG Visitor Centre, Cornwall Community Museum, Lamoureux Park and the Aquatic Centre.
The trail continues to the west and east, connecting Cornwall to the communities of South Dundas, South Stormont, South Glengarry… and beyond.
Free parking for trail users is available at the Cornwall Civic Complex, which also provides public washrooms.
