Road cyclists who are in good shape might wish to travel to Searchmont using Highway 556. The trip back to Heyden (Highway 17) becomes more challenging with the uphill climbs. During the fall colour period, this cycling trip is one of the best ways to fully experience the magnificence of this very attractive landscape. At the same time, the narrow highway shoulders require road cyclists to be particularly careful. This is an annual trip for the Sault Cycling Club.
Cyclists can ride from Algoma's Water Tower Inn & Suites to the Hiawatha Highlands Conservation Area using Old Garden River and Landslide Roads. The Landslide Road hill can be a challenge early in the cyling year.
|Gros Cap Bluffs|
Cyclists can ride to the Gros Cap area directly using Highway 550 (Second Line) or by using a combination of Highway 17, Fourth Line, Allen Side Road and Third Line to Second Line then on to Gros Cap. On the return cyclists can extend the trip by cycling out to the Pointe des Chênes area.

The Hub Trail
The John Rowswell Hub Trail, a 25-kilometre, non-motorized system, now circles the core of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The Hub Trail’s was started in 2000, and the central 5-km loop was completed in early 2012.

The Hub is easily accessed from Algoma’s Water Tower Inn & Suites. More...
|Echo Bay/Sylvan Valley|
Using Echo Bay, Desbarats or Bruce Mines as a starting point, you’ll discover road riding nirvana in back roads. Many optimal routes include paved and hard packed surfaces with rolling terrain through Mennonite farm land and historically enhanced terrain.
|St. Joseph Island|
Highway 548 circumnavigating the island is a roadies delight. Small river side towns, the Great Isles Shipping Channel, rolling terrain, forested areas, and quaint farms are all part of the journey. The roads are scenic and have little traffic. Allow extra time for many arts and culture stops.
Enjoy 2-3 day vacations, exploring the Great Lakes Heritage Coast with the Inn as your Trailhead.
Thank you for facilitating our use of your wonderful C~nergy Room. Our goal was to discuss our current challenges followed by discussing our vision, mission and goals. I'm sure that in five hours we accomplished more than what a traditional format would have taken a couple of days to do. Lunch was good too!- Linda Watts, Sault Area Hospital
