Lanark County Bilingual Cycling Map
Like riding your bike? Need to get away? Be active? Have fun?
We welcome you to Lanark with our first cycling map of the county. We are proud of our home and all it has to offer. Come cycle for the day, a weekend, or longer. Lanark is only a few kilometres from Ottawa but far enough away to take you to the gentle pace of pastoral back roads, rolling hills and limestone farmhouses. Imagine food offerings from tasty street food to maple; farmers’ markets to fine dining.
And we’ll put you up; from 5 stars to the stars in the sky above your tent! Slow right down and take in a festival, a museum, an art gallery. Start your day on a patio with a freshly brewed cup and end your day on a patio, in another small town with a glass of wine or micro brewed ale.
We’ll tempt you with small town charm. It will be hard to leave! Need to charge your batteries? Get on your bike in Lanark!
