Many of the routes begin in the waterfront park in Cornwall which was recently named “cycle friendly.” At this point cyclists can decide on either the east or west routes, all primarily flat and along County roads with low traffic counts and wide paved shoulders. Each cycle route features free parking areas for day cyclists, along with great restaurants and quaint diners to fuel up for the rest of the ride.
