Welcome to Thorold

Family Cycling Day this Sunday!

Details here

Welcome to the home of Cycle Thorold. The site dedicated to helping cyclists enjoy their experiences while travelling through the city that boasts the engineering wonder of the Welland Canal – The Twin Flight Locks.

Here you can watch the ships “climb the mountain” through locks 4, 5, 6, & 7.

Thorold is situated in the centre of the Niagara Region. Perched atop the Niagara escarpment it provides a spectacular view of northern Niagara including Lake Ontario as far as Toronto on a clear day.

The Welland Canal Parkway Trail passes through Thorold alongside the Canal.

The Thorold portion of  the trail is at its most challenging here . The Trail is also part of the Greater Niagara Circle Route which is one of the world’s great cycle routes as it winds along the Canal, Lake Erie, the Niagara River and Lake Ontario.

This site provides you with bike friendly shops, accommodations and dining along with tips on where to get assistance and provide event and destination updates.
