Bike + Train = Getaway

A few weeks ago, while defending the male gender to a friend recently scorned, the conversation turned to romantic getaways. With her being from Thorold, I said that a romantic weekend getaway was to take the train to Niagara Falls and cycle to a quaint bed and breakfast in Niagara-on-the-Lake, visiting wineries along the way.

With the Bike Train, this is a reality. The program, which added a bike-rack equipped baggage car to the Toronto - Niagara Falls VIA runs on weekends, was a big hit last summer is back for another season with some trains now stopping in St. Catharines (but oddly, not boarding). With gas prices approaching "arm & leg", this is the kind of multi-modal transportation that will allow city dwellers to escape to the countryside during the stressful summer months.
