Le Tour de Norfolk

My rental from Runner’s Den in Port Dover, Ontario

by CHERIE DELORY

I’m taking a break on my 40 Km route in last year’s Tour de Norfolk.  The town of Delhi in southern Ontario’s Norfolk County is staging its 4th annual Tour de Norfolk cycling tour on July 16 and 17th, 2011. A short 20-minute drive southwest of Brantford will take you to the Delhi Community Centre, registration site and starting point for the tour. http://www.letourdenorfolk.com/

I rented a burgundy Beach Cruiser for the relatively flat-terrained 40 Km tour last summer. Initially I had my doubts about being able to manage on a Cruiser with no gears, but it was easy breezy…not to mention super comfortable. Port Dover is about a 30-minute drive from the tour site in Delhi.  http://www.purerun.blogspot.com/

This feel-good boutique sports something for everyone from all 10 provinces and three territories of our great nation.  I like the birch syrup and maple-glazed salmon from B.C.  I’m also partial to the vintage CBC t-shirts. This charming shop is not to be missed if you’re visiting Port Dover, located at 361 Main Street.   Theatre-goers will love the Lighthouse Festival Theatre just down the street in the old Town Hall, circa 1904. Check out the fun line up for this summer:    http://www.lighthousetheatre.com/
