There certainly is a lot of hype surrounding ‘mindfulness’ these days—and for good reason with the hustle and bustled of our quick-paced lives. Grey County provides an awe-inspiring array of rich colours, sounds, smells and textures throughout the four seasons to practice mindfulness. Any patch of nature that captures your senses will do, be it the sun’s rays dancing through rustling trees, a warm breeze enveloping you, or an orchestra of crickets in tangled wild flowers.
With well-maintained, quiet roads and amazing scenery, Grey County is truly a cycling destination. Home to the annual Centurion cycling race, the region has become a training ground for racers and recreational cyclists alike.

Enjoy the views of Geogian Bay as you ride the Blue Mountain Gondola up the Niagara Escarpment. The rest of the route is like a roller coaster, cruising downhill past agricultural lands, passing orchards along the way.
